I have cast aside all other projects for a mystery father's day project (my husband reads my blog occasionally hence the mystery). I am concerned about being done in time. Ray is away until tomorrow afternoon on a business trip, and I want to be finished by then as it certainly would lose it's mystery if he saw me working on it. I am hoping with a late night tonight I can just about finish it. I rented Honey to watch tonight, so it should be perfect for mindless knitting.

Avery was a runner up in a contest sponsored by the New York Post and the City of New York called Little Apple Heroes. He wrote an essay on how he would spend a day, with a group of volunteers cleaning up our neighborhood park and making it a "relaxation spot". I am very proud! Thanks to this we won 4 tickets to a special screening of the first Spider Man movie tomorrow, as well as a party before the movie.

I also have to start the water bottle bag for Avery's teacher. I am rapidly running out of time, but it should go quickly enough. The pattern I found used 2 strands of worsted, although it's on a lower gauge needle than you would normally use. I assume it's to make a good strong, dense fabric.

So what's missing? Devan! I do plan on casting on this weekend as planned. I just don't think I'll get much done until the end of the week.

Where is everybody else the Devan along?

Stephanie completed a front panel but is having some concerns about her color matching. I personally like the bright lime.

Chris is working on the back piece. The other pieces look great!

The rest of us have yet to begin. I'm sure we'll catch up soon enough...
