8-22-2017 Mini Shawl Swatch KAL

 Today I started a mini shall swatch KAL
that is teaching kitting techniques
from 5 different countries
and their lace.
This is the first one...
techniques from the Shetland Islands.
(Obviously, I did NOT use lace weight yarn...
just some scrap yarns from other projects
as I'm more interested in learning the techniques
than I am in the finished products!)

8-21-2017 Solar Eclipse

The day started out cloudy...
...but cleared up during the 3 hours of the solar eclipse!
 "Oma, I see it!" they shouted in the dark light!
We were not in the path of 'totality'
but had over 90% of the sun covered.
The girls are standing in the light of that 90%.
