That's my girl.

I am about 3/4 of the way finished the final row of the Rainbow Doily. It looks great and I can't wait to get it pinned out, starched, and photographed. This last row is taking forever though. Nearly every stitch in the final row has a picot. It is very finicky and time consuming! TODAY. Yes, today I will finish it and hopefully find some "ridgid insulation" to make myself a blocking board.

That special term for the type of foam board I am looking for comes courtesy of my daughter who is just finishing up a year at college where she has completed the C.A.D. (Computer Assisted Drafting) program. She has already been hired(and it looks like a good job too!) and I want to take this opportunity to say how proud I am of her. (And she knits too!) Way to go Kris!

Here she is with her drafting portfolio.

Yeah Kristy! Congrats to mom and dad for raising such an awesome daughter. Hired already? That is great for planning a future! :) Anne

What a child makes of the life they are given is entirely up to them. As parents, we don't deserve any extra credit for Kristy's upbringing. We did as all parents do......the best we could.

If you are handing out awards, I would be willing to accept a "participant" ribbon for Parenthood, but it is up to each individual child to decide if they are going to "go for the gold".
