Tied up in Mystery Lace

Not much going on except the Mystery Lace. I am on the second side with Clue 3. Hope to start clue 4 tomorrow if I can get the 50 rows done today. Good chance of that happening, not much going on around the house except naps and laundry. LOL. Had a nice rain last night but it's muggy outside now. So I have been knitting and tried to watch "Snatch" on DVD. Not a good movie so DH is now watching the Discovery Channel. I think I am going upstairs with "West Side Story" DVD. LOL. Just so much Discovery Channel I can take. No pictures because the digital is not working right. I think it needs a new battery. Maybe next week.

WIP 7-17-06

Wow time did get away from me. But working on the Mystery Stole has been a trip. Clue one is done and I am a few rows into the 2nd clue.

There has still been time to work a little on the Bumble Shawl. You know like riding along with DH and waiting on food to be served, LOL.

What a time we had!

We went to Austin for our 8th anniversary and had a great time. Found some great things at the shops, ate too much, and had some wonderful quality time alone together.
Of course no trip to Austin isn't complete with out a trip to Hill Country Weavers. I found the yarn I needed for the Bumble Bee Shawl, sock yarn, a swift, and a spindle. Then when I got home my SP had sent me one, too. But I will use them both I am sure. I tried to buy wool at the Wool Co-op in Eden but they don't sell to the public, ughhh. I think the wool my SP sent will be better for my first try at spinning any way.

I found this great 50's lamp at a little shop off S. Congress. It had to come home with me since my living room is done in 50's style. LOL.

Then I found this wonderful little rocking chair I think on Lamar somewhere, LOL. It sits so well great for knitting and maybe someday rocking a grandbaby.
We also went to an Ashram off 290. They had peacocks all over the place. Such a peaceful place. We will try to go stay there sometime. I told DH that next year I am going to WHIBSIB and he can go stay at the ashram. LOL.
We found a castle in the middle of Austin. Has anyone every seen this. Don't even ask me what road we had a hard time finding it. Almost passed it, it's in the middle of a neighbourhood. Interesting to say the least!
I had the whole week off so what do I do? Paint! I got the garage done and it got to hot to do anymore, will try to finish the one side of the house I have left to do Sunday.

My Missy Lace project is done!!! Yah hoo.


Beautiful if I do say so myself!

TY Secret Pal

What a wonderful surprise when I got back from Autin. My secret pal sent me a spindal and some wool to spin in a great tube holder. I'm thinking "wine bottle holder" LOL. Thank you so very much.
