Well, I finally finished the practice Clapotis Cap. I think the most fun part was dropping stitches - looks around - on purpose!!! Now that was totally fun. Since it was a pratice one - I used Red Heart in Stars & Stripes. Nathan was actually cooperative and let mommy take a picture of him in the hat. Now to decide what color to make mine.

The new car - a 2006 PT Cruiser in Marine Blue. So much more roomier than the Escort - and with 4 doors it makes it easier to get the kids in the back seat. Looks like there is a chance that the Escort might be going over to Colorado to my mother. Today we took the PT Cruiser out and went up to Gladstone to the Michaels up there. Got 3 balls of cotton yarn that Nicholas liked to play with and gave slobbery kisses to. Of course I forgot to get some black Red Heart that I need for an exchange. I need to make 8 amethyst Wagon Ho squares for a lady in Florida who loves purple. The only thing that was weird for me was not pumping my own gas. Oh well, at least my hands won't smell like gasoline.
