I'm working on a sweater for Jerico. The Pirate King.. tee hee. Who loves all things pirate except the real deal..of course. Pattern is called: Skullflake and can be found on Ravelry.
Jerico picked an off white and Fatigue green. I'm up both arms to the lower part of the skulls.
I am also working on a vest for Terri Shea. She is planning on selling patterns online. So, I can't show you the design. Besides the fact ..she hasn't given me the pattern.....or even written it yet. I am to the armpits of the back with no direction to go so am working on skullflake. Nag nag Terri. Not that she ever reads my blog :P

Front yard re-design

Not knitting but its what We've been doing. Jerico, Bill and I removed the Iris garden.....gone. Grass instead and a planter box that doesn't wreck my back. Cleared other weed haven and planted the removed Iris'. New path of brick. Concrete pavers have gone to the backdoor. Also, with new grass which is being difficult and growing patchy. Truely loving my front yard!! At last!

Another Pretty

Wyatt and Marshall out riding. They're having so much fun with their mountain bikes. Just had to share!

Love this picture of my boys, Jerico and Marshall. Taken a couple days before Jerico headed to Guam for work.

Ren faire 2011

Blanche,Valerie and I had a lovely time at the SCA ren faire in Bonney lake. We managed to go around the circuit ONCE because the faire was so HUGE.

I think I slept or spaced for 2 days afterwards. Amazingly, I didn't hurt more then usual. AND, I got to wear the dress I bought 12 yrs. ago when Marshall and I last went to a ren faire.

Thanks for the invite Valerie.....and thanks to Glenn for Driving!!
