I can not believe it has been a whole week since the last post. Have I ever gone a whole week between posts?

My beans had to be moved outside. They were so tall they had begun to spiral around each other and the “colortop icicles” hanging over the kitchen sink.

They now have a permanent home out on the deck, complete with a colorful wire to climb.

Saturday Oldest Daughter and I went to an International Recruiting event for UBC. They sounded very positive, which is good because today she received a rejection notice from St. Olaf. UBC is her first choice, but it would be nice to have a back up plan. Right now she is a few classes short of an AA. It would be OK with me if she sticks around another semester and tries again as a transfer student. There is a downside to that plan. #1: She is REALLY looking forward to going away and living in a dorm. #2: We have invested almost $500.00 in application fees. That is something I do not want to do again.

The blog counter is very close to 2000,that means it is time for a contest! Leave a comment before Saturday and I will draw a name from a hat for some yarny goodness.

Socks That Rock, Pink Granite. This skein is from the first year of the Rockin’ Sock Club. Yeah, the colorway is now available to the public, but this one has the cool sock club band.

That's a stunning colorway! I hope your daughter has good luck. I have banned myself from knitting until after the bat mitzvah as I keep having to frog...maybe if I just work on a plain sock!

Best of luck to your daughter! UBC stands for the University of British Columbia, right (or is there another UBC)? I'm not going there, but from what I've heard it's a great university.

Congratulations on the milestone!
