This was a quick project. It called for Cascade Magnum, but I used yarn from my stash held double. I like it, D#2 likes it. But I do want to try another one using the Cascade. Which will mean buying size 15 double pointeds! egads.
We had a pretty low key weekend around here. Took a road trip on Saturday to see a horse show, hung out and got odd jobs accomplished yesterday. I didn’t even make it to our local Sheep to Shawl Festival! Today I am going to visit with Kathleen and see all of her recent house construction.
Did I tell you that D#1 will not be coming home this summer? Her finals finished on Saturday and her summer job on campus begins on Wednesday. Originally she had applied for a RA position in a summer program for high school students that runs at the college. That job would have run the length of the program, which I think was five weeks or so. She did not get that job, but instead got another one which involves assisting in organizing, running and setting up for all of the summer programs on campus. Therefore this job takes up much more of the summer. She has requested a weekend or two off, but really won’t be home except for two weeks in August.
believe it or not, I am pretty good with all of this. It will be great for her – more independant living and $$ earning. And it will also mean no negotiating new living together terms for the newly independant daughter home from college. It is so easy to live with your newly independant college aged daughter when she doesn’t actually come home.
I will never forget my first summer home from college. …. I was going out to meet some friends, and my mother calls out “have fun and be home by 11”. ??? I believe I actually laughed out loud.
