Wow...it's been a while...

In my defence I've been sick with the flu. As a result I haven't done much knitting. However, I'm feeling better now and today is my 29th birthday so I had to post.

Because it's my birthday, I'm going to do something that I saw on the June 29th posting of Rochelle's blog. You go on Wikipedia and type in your birth month and day. Then you list 3 events, 2 births, and 1 holiday that take place on your birthday.


Here goes:

Events:

- 1789- Storming of the Bastille in Paris, France.

- 1943- George Washington Carver monument in Joplin, Missouri, becomes 1st US National Monument to honour a black American

-1995- Mp3 format named


Births:

-1862- Austrian Painter and Artist Gustav Klimt

-1913-38th President of the United States, Gerald Ford


Holidays:

Official:

France & all French Dependencies-Bastille Day

Unofficial (remember this is Wikipedia, so no real guarantees of accuracy):

United States: National Nude Day (no I will not be participating)


Wow July 14 was an interesting day in history.


Now on to serious matters:
Campanula. One of the members of the Summer of Socks 2007 has come up with a brilliant idea to raise money for Breast Cancer. She is participating in the Weekend to End Breast Cancer, and in order to raise money for this she has decided to "sell" her lovely Campanula sock pattern. Everyone who sponsors her will receive the pattern. Please go to her blog and assist her in this worthy endeavour.
Now for some knitting:
I finished the Camera Bag:
All done except for:
Arghh! I-cord. It's strong... it looks nice...it takes FOREVER to knit...
I also finished one of my Gull Wings socks:
The photo doesn't do the the colour justice, but when I used the flash to show the true colours, the pattern didn't show to it's best. Pattern vs. Colour....
Now I am off to work and then dinner and a movie with my boyfriend.
TTFN and KEEP KNITTING!
