This past week end was pretty much all Tattoo. I did have my knitting with me but it was too dark to knit!

June is here. Woo Hoo! Work has been crazy lately! School is almost over. Knitting is coming along.
As for knitting, I have done a bit more on the Feather and Fan Sweater. I figure if I take it slow then I can't get frustrated with it! I am almost finished the feather and fan part. I will very soon be onto the main part of the body...the dreaded stockinette stitch. I have only an inch to go...WOO HOO! I am so loving how it is looking. This Soya yarn falls and drapes so nice, I can hardly wait to wear the sweater.
Finished a pair of Apple Harvest Socks. They were made from Flat Feet yarn . They turned out great. I put them in a plain bubble envelope and sent them off to DH's cousin with no return address. They took 4 days to arrive. I received a very happy phone call saying that they were PERFECT!
Canadian Military Tattoo and DD is dancing in it. There are 2 performances, one on Saturday evening and the second on Sunday afternoon. It should be interesting, I am going to help out on Sunday as I have to work on Saturday. Della is going to be there on Saturday and Sunday to do anything that needs to be done. She's a good egg!
The Georgetown Highland games are this weekend as well. We have not gone to them in the last 4 years as DD has wanted to take part in the tattoos. Her goal is to dance at the Edinburgh tattoo in Scotland.
Hey My friend Della received a few skeins of yarn as a thank you gift and she gave me a skein of the most beautiful lace weight yarn I have ever seen (it's on the right side of the picture). The colour and softness are wonderful! It is from the Knitting Goddess in the UK and is a cashmire and silk blend.
Well that's enough for now! I will see if I can sneak a picutre or 2 of the Tattoo practice and post them here!.
Have a great evening and happy knitting!
