Over the 4th of July, I tried to pick up the New Orleans Shawl again, but I swear, every time I pick it up I screw it up. So after a few days, I finally put it back in time out and moved on. And what better way to move on, than a Flying Pig?!?!?!?!
This was a quick knit that took less than a day. I used Cascade 220 on #5 DPN and found the pattern here.

I took a trip to my local Target and rummaged around the men's department until I spotted the right pair of cargo shorts.
Honestly, I have never modified a garment like this before, and to actually be wearing it is a huge accomplishment for me! So if I can do it, you can too!!!!!

Other than that, the past week has been pretty quite, and slow. Hopefully this week will keep on trucking and Saturday will be here before I know it!

But knitting is not the only thing I've accomplished this week. While J worked on filling the hole in our downstairs bathroom ceiling (shower leaked from the upstairs bath), I was playing in the yard...again. I managed to hit the pool, plant some pots, pressure wash the patio and the furniture, rearrange the patio with new pillows, and put up our new bird feeders. Over the past two weeks, I was successful in reviving the yard with watering it every other evening. Once it cools down in the fall, I get the task of fertilizing the yard that was neglected for nearly a year. One step at a time I guess.
And last but certainly not least, the Stanley Cup Finals started this week! Currently watching game two, wishing that Boston would land one in the net!!!

During the days, I have been working in the yard, one flower pot at a time. Although a little toad has decided to sabotage me by digging my flowers back up! While J has been fixing the ceiling in the bathroom. We also hung Old Glory!
At night, while J goes out riding, I have been meeting friends at the new coffee shop to knit and chat. It doesn't get much better then that!
Have a safe Memorial Day!

I'm back and I plan on staying! Life has settled down at our new home and moving forward. I've knitted so many things since my last post, but I will leave you with my latest.
Here is the Roxanne shawl, it was a mystery KAL by feministy, and it was my first. I have to admit, while knitting it, I could not see myself wearing it. But now that it is done, I love it!
