Food, Friends and Miles of Garter Stitch

This was such a nice weekend. We saw a great movie (Knocked Up) at the cheap theatre near our house. How cheap? Try $15 for 2 tickets, 2 sodas and popcorn. Supa-cheap! We also went out for dinner with friends on Saturday night at a place called Harry's Tap Room. The company was terrific, the food fabulous and the evening just perfect. I hope that you all had an equally wonderful weekend.
IMG_1702While we did get out and play this weekend, it wasn't all fun and games. We took care of a few renovation chores and other huge things. No matter what we were doing, this was my view for most of the weekend. I took Stinky's blankie with me everywhere we went and it's still not finished. OMG! It just feels like miles and miles of garter stitch. I'm getting close though. I just have 4 more strips and the edge to do.
My girls return tomorrow and I couldn't be happier. It sounds like they've had a wonderful time with their cousins and other family but I'm ready to have them home. It seems like all summer people keep asking where my kids are. It must sound like I'm constantly sending them away. In reality they have spent a good part of the summer away from me but I've missed them every minute. Every single minute.

The blanket looks fantastic - - I'm just wondering how many ends will be left for weaving in. I'm absolutely awful at the weaving in...totally horrifically bad.
