Yes indeed; I watched the Phillies game while soaking in the hot tub. Dad and I rigged up the sunroom tv so we could watch is warm soaky goodness.
Now, if only I could figure out how to knit, watch the phils and hot tub...

This is Luther and I sitting out back, smelling the liacs. Notice I am draped in the sampler shawl, which the ladies at Adventures in Knitting were oooing and aaaahing over. I bought a really cute shawl pin, which seems to be helping me manage the size of the shawl. I also conned the ladies at the yarn shop out of two skeins of Alchemy Synchroncity for $20---not per skein, $20 TOTAL. Apparently, they have had some trouble selling Alchemy up here; guess they don't have the same taste we Philly knitters do. I'm working on the Alchemy Bamboo scarf. I've decided to use a vertical lace trellis pattern that seems to yield itself well to the varigations in the yarn (photos to follow).
On a downer note, I found out I am NOT going to Botswana this year---it is not off the burner completely-but the grant was given the kybash by Penn adminstrators before it ever got off the ground. So, I'll keep dreaming about my "Out of Africa" moments; and I guess it is good news for Knitty D and the City. I've got to get my knit on...
Here is the cashmere clap...I LOVE IT...this morning Trish and I had a TINY incident with some coffee and the cashmere, but I was able to rescue it by cutting about 6 inches and spit-splicing it back together...thank god for "apply spit to hand..."
I've done four of the drops...I agree with Wendy that it gets a bit boring and wants to be put down for a few days...but to Wendy I suggest when you knit it in cashmere, you want to come back to it sooner.
Here is a shout out to my sister! Thanks for the AWESOME Loop Gift Certificate for my birthday!
If I knit it again, I would probably make it shorter length wise and larger with width.
Also, I left out the eyelet border on both the top and bottom; I thought it was a bit much and took away from the other lace patterns.
The beagles say; HAPPY WEEKEND!
