I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

Well, I’ve got 100 rows left of stranded colorwork left before the lion is complete! :)
I thought at one point that I might not finish, but now I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Here’s a photo of the floats on the back (I haven’t posted a pic of the front recently in case TH gets curious):
wow blanket
The one thing that has really paid off since I’m doing fair isled instead of intarsia is that the time I figured out I’d made a mistake two rows back, I was able to drop a couple of stitches, pick the correct color up and redo the stitches(using the floats rather than the original strands) and correct the mistake without having to rip out two rows! :)
Yay for floats (I prefer to say floats rather than “strands” b/c it makes me think of coke floats.)! :)

The Stars won Friday night in a great game. Krahn had 43 saves and Jamie Benn got a hat trick. The final score was 5-3 and I was thrilled! Hopefully they’ll win again tonight and advance. :)
Go STARS! :)

In other news, I saw Iron Man 2. If you liked the first one, I think you’ll enjoy it. I did…..except for the 15 year old boy next to me that couldn’t seem to resist repeating EVERY single quotable line after it was said and making noises too. He was wearing a national guard shirt, so maybe he’ll go into the military and learn to be quiet. His dad shushing him sure wasn’t working. And he was drinking milk rather than soda. I can’t imagine him on sugar!
Tip for parents: If you know you have to shush your kid during movies, have them sit on the end near the aisle.
I managed not to tell him to say anything rude despite the fact that he almost ruined the movie for me…….so, that was something.
and just last week, I was thinking that I don’t really have a problem with repetitive noises (like people clicking their pens or microwaves beeping)…..but you let a teenaged kid talk over my movie…..well, that’s another thing entirely.

Happy Mother’s Day to my mom, Grammy, Grandma Katie, and my MIL.

Everyone else, Happy Sunday! :)
