I swear I've been knitting. I'm on the sleeve decreases at the top of the first sleeve for the Must Have Cardigan and then it's done. I should have lots of knitting time with Jeremy home and all the time we'll be in the car showing him around.
Here's a sneak peek at something else a few of us have been working on. It's a square knitted in the round from the center out. The yarn is Sherwood Forest Highland Wool from Elann. the pattern is Gull Wing from EZ's Knitter's almanac. That's all I can say, I can't say no more! You'll see what it's all about in a few months.
I got an email from Jeremy this morning. He's waiting for a flight to Kuwait. Hopefully he'll get there tomorrow. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
I'm finally getting organized with Operation: Take a Soldier to the Movies. I don't think I knew what I was getting into. lol. If you could see how many stairs we have to carry these boxes up and then back down again once "orders" are filled. Whew. Good workout!
That's 250 boxes (there's some on the table in the background)being packed to ship down to Iraq. Inside each box is a DVD, two microwave popcorns, an individual drink mix, movie candy and a letter from someone back home letting the solider know they are appreciated. Finally got them all out this morning. Here's the piles of boxes of donations I still need to go through:
Seems like a lot, but it goes fast once popcorn boxes start getting filled. This is a great project for a school, church or scouts if someone is looking for something to do!! You can email me here through the blog or my snail mail is listed on the Operations web site: http://soldiertomovies.org/
Time to go make Welcome Home Banners for Jeremy!
