I've done almost 60 rows on the first panel of the Celtic Knotwork baby blanket. I think it will be ok, it's not hard, the hardest thing is that I have to keep track of the rows to make the knots work out, not too bad actually. It's not as exciting a look as I thought it would be but good enough.

Just a second ago Aidan learned how to use something long to reach something that was out of his reach! As if he didn't get into enough trouble as it is. [sigh] Well at least I can block off the kitchen so that he can't get into the trash any more. Actually he is a very normal little 18 month old boy, at least when it comes to finding trouble.

It's so hot here today that when I opened Aidan's drawer to get a clean shirt for him the cloths felt like they had just came out of the dryer. It's so strange to me to put my hand on a table inside the house and have it feel very warm. It will be nice when winter finally comes. But as Howard said, we have a month and a half of Spring, a month and a half of Fall, 2 months of winter and 7 months of Summer. I really don't like it here in California. I can't wait until we can move back to Oregon. Which won't be for a couple of years anyway.

Howard is going to take his final test for his certificate on September 2nd. If he passes it he will hopefully get an internship with the state or county.

When you finish the blanket, would you mind taking a picture and posting it, or sending it my way? I'd love to see it.

As for seven months of summer, sign me up.

I was thinking of posting either a picture of the finished product or possibly just one panel. Or maybe both. :)

As for the 7 months of summer, you can have it. I hate regular temps in the 90's with weeks over 100. At least with cold weather you can put on more cloths, there isn't much you can do about the heat. Oh and hot weather also mean more bugs! ;)

I'm not fond of more bugs, but I am in pain when I'm too cold. I am not in pain when I'm too hot, so I choose that.
