Dancing with the Stars....not

Dear Mom,
I can only give you a sneak peek at yesterdays finished project. It is destined for the July 2010 issue of Creative Knitting magazine.

It is always a thrill to have an idea become a successful reality, and it is also a relief when a deadline knit is off the needles. This project awaits a few finishing touches before it is handed off to the magazine, but I can now, with a clear conscience, return to my black lace work in progress.

The Young Man seems to have had a fun time (and actually dance) at the Homecoming Dance on Saturday night, in spite of (or thanks to) all the coaching and dance demos My Hero and I gave him. As if we have any business giving dance demos. A Crisis was avoided when, with less than 2 hours before the dance, The Young Man discovered that his arms and shoulders had significantly and seriously outgrown his dress shirt. My Hero and I calmly sent him up to the shower, left our dinners half eaten on our plates and drove to the nearby Kohl's where we were able to find a couple of shirts and save the day. Wooosh. When he left, I let out the breath I was holding, then took another one and held it until he got home, smiling.
