Happy 4th!

Happy 4th of July! Thank God that we're a free country!

yes, i could be snarky about a "free" country, but, it could be a whole lot worse. So today, I'm going to enjoy food, fireworks and my family, and not worry about anything.

Thanks for the hint about the sewing. I'd forgotten that you can sew on either side of a steek to anchor it, _before_ you take the drastic step of cutting. Thank goodness! My alpaca isn't slippery at all, it's very fuzzy, but it might not stick to itself well (it's sticking to everything else...my shirt, my hair, the cats...)

Me and Big J and Little J are going to be on vacation for the rest of the week. We're headed out to Origins convention in Columbus, Ohio. I'll see y'all Monday! I've already got my projects picked out to take along: alpaca sweater, big black socks, dishcloth. That should be enough. I'm going to be running around after Little J, too, so who knows how much time I'll have to actually knit.
