Field trip = movie star signatures

Ok. I guess this is BIG enough news to make me post.

I picked up Pumpkin Girl from her Tae Kwon Do class. She was giddy as a school girl (she's 9 after all). Anyway, her class and the rest of the 4th graders in her school had their science field trip at this "awesome" Smithsonian Institution. She got Shia LaBeouf's signature on her science packet. Michael Bay signed her packet as well as her t-shirt. She's never going to let me wash that shirt. ;-) She was a bit disappointed not to get a glimpse of Megan Fox. Apparently, they're filming Transformers 2 at the museum.

What about Bob?

After all that ribbing in Fifi, I needed a quick knit and hopefully something simple that I could work on at the beach. Overall, Bob would've been a quick knit. I've just been lazy.

I started with one sleeve before we left on vacation. I fiddled with the length and got the numbers down. I cast on for the body on our drive down to the beach (Sat, Aug 4th). I got about 6" done. Then I knit the second sleeve. I finished most of the body (up to the split) while we were on vacation (that was 2 weeks ago). During the sporadic knitting last week I finished the front. Last night, I buckled down and finished the back. All that is left to do is seam it up and weave in the ends.

[Insert unseamed blob known as Bob here]

I won!

The lovely Bron celebrated her 4th blogiversary earlier this month while I was on vacation. I dropped her a quick note to greet her and by some strange luck I won a gift. See what the mailman delivered yesterday ...

Thanks so much Bron! Knit on!
