The rules are to go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday month and day only. Then post 3 events, 2 births and one holiday that occurred on your birthday, then tag 5 friends. 

My birthday is July 31.

Events Why are almost all of these about men, disasters, deaths or wars?? I tried to pick some that weren’t…:
1930 – The radio mystery program The Shadow airs for the first time.
1975 – In Detroit, Michigan, Teamsters Union president Jimmy Hoffa is reported missing. My actual birth date 😉
1976 – Viking program: Viking 1 – NASA releases the famous Face on Mars photo.

1860 – Mary Vaux Walcott, American artist and naturalist (d. 1940)
1966 – Dean Cain, American actor
1981 – Matthew “M. Shadows” Sanders, American singer (Avenged Sevenfold)
Not listed on Wikipedia, but I also share my birthday with HARRY POTTER 😀

La Hae Hawai‘i – Hawaiian Flag Day.

Tagging…no one because this is an old meme 🙂


Ugly template. But the other one was flawed & I couldn’t fix it. Hopefully I will have more time to play with it later today.

This took me forEVERRR! I have quite a bit of yarn…plus I wanted to do it when dh wasn’t home. The site of all that yarn in one place might have sent him over the edge. Now quick, before I show you all these pictures…someone needs to distract the little men in the white suits *wink*

And I am not even going to post any of my UFOs or WIPs. Then the little men in white suits really would be after me *twitch twitch*

An update on the clapotis!
I’ve started it, two days ago actually, but I’ve only had about 2 hours to work on it over the last three days. Between kids doctors appts (I have two of my four children with pneumonia now) and the kids having yesterday off from school, it doesn’t make much time for knitting. I get a lot of my knitting done in the van while waiting for them all to get out of school (four kids in four different schools letting out at four different times makes for lots of knitting time lol).

Anyway, here’s the clapotis:

It’s curling at the bottom, is that normal? Something that will come out with blocking? Don’t you love my “stitch markers” lol. I don’t have any on hand and didn’t want to wait until I got some…not to mention I can’t fathom spending $5 on 10 little plastic rings! I’d rather make my own pretty ones with beads!! Something else that’s on my “to try” list.

Here’s a close up:

The color doesn’t photograph well, it’s called “winter white”. This yarn is soooo soft! I love it! I think I’m going to go back & get some more for baby sweaters. Or maybe even a sweater for myself 🙂

I’ve added a list of the knitting podcasts I listen to when I remember/have time. I really need to remember to upload them to my iPod so I can listen to them anywhere rather than try to hear them on the laptop (read: crappy laptop speakers).

We are now halfway through the Monthly Dishcloth KAL and I started a second one. This one I’m alternating varigated red/pink/white with white. It’s so pretty…it reminds me of those Starlight Mints.

Can you see the resemblance?
