Summer is over already?

Well, despite my best intentions, I have let some more time pass without a post. This is against the rules in the swaps and doesn't make my swap pals very happy. I had a great SP8 pal. She is from Estonia and send tons of stuff-- mostly representative of her country. I got mitten yarn and patterns, post cards and lots of candy. Unfortunately, it was 116 thousand degrees here and some of the chocolate was not in very good condition. But man, was she generous. I was not a very good partner. My oldest son went to college this summer and my youngest spent a month at debate camp. I was really depressed, way more than I had expected to be. I kept buying stuff for my pal all summer and just couldn't get the gumption to put it in an envelope and get it mailed. How stupid is that? Anyway, I got a big package mailed to her this week and I hope it will make up for the long delay.

After the stress of the summer, we went to Cabo San Lucas for a week. The same week as Hurricane John. I have a couple of pictures from the storm that I have to put up, but am not sure where they are right now.

On a knitting front-- I finished my PI shawl that I did with the Create your own PI group. My, in keeping with my past knitting, is huge!! I think I used 6 or 7 balls of Kidsilk Haze. I'll have to look at the yardage, but the thought scares me. I am going to block it soon, then will put up a picture.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to a more relaxed fall.
