Uhm, yeah – I AM still here.  And I still Knit.  Things have been crazy n good at my house this summer – so I’ve not been blogging.  Ravelry is my newest addiction.  If you use Ravelry – I’m AprilBroken.  If you knit, and DON’T use Ravelry – get yourself signed up!

 So – what Have I done since I was last here?

Well – the boys are hard and heavy into scouting (still) and I haven’t put this picture up from Memorial Day (so I will now).  I did the color-work on it, then had a few printed to send to our friends in the military for 4th of July/Thank You cards.


I got some lovely yarns from Kris in the KnitFlix swap I was in (the two front ones):


The yarns are All Things Heather Spring Fling and Perchance to Knit Popscicle.  Of course they will become socks!


Now that Zackary is a BOY Scout, he is able to go on more and better (IMO) outings than the Cub Scouts.  This past weekend, we ventured to Metroplexia to see a NASCAR race.

The socks really enjoyed the race.

Zachary did too.

Mack had so much fun, he fell asleep – at NASCAR.

And for reference as to how close we were to the track – look at that pic of Zack.  One more row of seating, then the safety/Hot zone, then track!  Its LOUD!

Mack had much more fun here:

Other places we went this weekend (actual stops)  Oklahoma City, Fort Worth, Arlington, Keller, Dallas, Sherman, and Denton.

We had fun, and we’re already planning for next year!

PS – I also talked to Monkee because we were breathing the same Metroplexia air, and I saw this – reminding me of all the Chat Girls (and Anthony).
