August weekend

Our grandson turned one year old.

His party was great. There were lots of kids, lots of moms and dads, grandparents, aunts and uncles.

The table was full of goodies, meatballs, cookies, salads, some other stuff that I don't know the
name for them. Plus, of course hamburgers, hotdogs, chicken, lots of water and other drinks.

The kids were having a ball in the pool, sliding down and playing with water. It was a great day, and even the rain stayed away.

Of course there was the cake, and this little birthday boy had the cake all over him and his face. That's what happens when one eats with his little fingers.

Today is another beautiful day. It was warm and sunny all day. I foolishly stayed inside all day, knitting a scarf for a co-worker, who will have a birthday on Thursday, but since she decided to take a vacation for that day, we are going to have a luncheon for her on Wednesday.
There is no escape here for her. Here is a picture of the scarf. It is done in garter stitch, with
size 5 mm needles. The "yarn" is Eros Herwool. It's some sort of ribbon yarn. There is no way a pattern would show up, so just a plain garter stitch is the best.

What a cutie!

I'm glad you had a good day my friend - birthdays are always special, especially first one's.

The scarf looks very nice - I'm sure she'll love it.

Thank you, Sherri!

It was a great day indeed.

The colors on the scarf are the ones my co-worker likes. I am sure she will like it, she appreciates handmade stuff.

Your grandson is adorable!! How nice that everyone could get together for a party and it sounds as if there was lots of food and good times.

That scarf is gorgeous! I love that yarn/ribbon and the colors look like jewels. That will be a great birthday gift.
