Can I call it finished?

I took alot of Sunday to work on my knitting. Finished all the knitting and trim work on the child's zippered jacket. It is so cute. Brown and gold and the school colors of North Bend (Oregon) High School. I've ordered a zipper in gold, and as soon as it comes in, I'll be stitching it in by hand.
Also finished and blocked the last sleeve to the adult version of this jacket. This version is being hand knit, whereas the Brown and Gold Child's version was done on my LK150.

I'm getting there!! The excitement I feel at finishing 2 projects at the same time is almost as great as starting new ones! Hubby's sweater fell to the side, again. With just barely half of a sleeve left, it is pretty bad. But it will be done by winter, as I will still be flying high at finishing up the zippered jackets.

The summer is just about in full swing around my home. This weekend my husband's neice and her husband are coming down from Portland, Or. Bill is an architect and Kerry a stay-at-home Mom for now. We plan on a very major bathroom/bedroom remodel and Bill is going to do some plans for us. The weekend after 2 of our sons, and our son-in-law will be here to put a new roof on my Mom's place (on our property, too.)

Wall of Cascade 220 yarns!! Activity in the store has shifted into summer mode. Sales are not as frantic thru the website, but are still very very good. Sarah and I are spending our spare time cleaning and organizing displays and catching up the web site (as if it could EVER be caught up, and my evenings have been blessedly and outright lazy. Last night I laid in the chair for hours reading "the Club Dumas". Caught the last half of the movie with Johnny Depp. I'm not necessarily a Depp fan, and in fact, Captain Jack is the only character I get excited about. But Depp doing Corso was quite captivating. So I had to go to the Library and check out the book. I'm getting summer tourists into the store. We have 2 RV parks in Lakeside. Both located on the lake. Also there are quite a few summer rentals on the lake, and homes that host family reunions and such. So I have summer regulars that come in. It is always nice to see them and their projects!
