I finally finished these!

I have finally finished my fingerless gloves. You are probably thinking why make gloves in the summer? That's because I need them to knit in the winter. It gets really cold and I want my hands to be warm. They are made with Homespun yarn by Red Heart. So furry and soft. I can't wait to knit with them. They were so easy to make to.
Boy, did I have a busy week. Not that everyone else doesn't have a busy week. I took the kids to the pool in the Sports Club. My gosh, it was so much fun. The water was nice and clean. Kids were playing. I am going to teach my kids how to swim. I am thinking since I know how to swim myself can I teach them. Or should I get a professional to do it? They are offering swimming lessons, so I am going to check it out. The air was flowing over that desert sand and we were getting cold so we had to go. I have to go to the pool again. I haven't swam in 14 years. I can't believe it been that long. My gosh.
On Sunday I found out that my dear friend from the UK is leaving. I was feeling so down that I couldn't even knit. It takes alot for me not to knit. But I cried for about three days because I don't want to see her go, but she has to leave. Oh man. It's so hard to let go of a good friend. I couldn't even go on the blog. But anyway I started to finish my 2 projects that I am currently doing. I feel I am knitting too slow. My friend is leaving next Wednesday. So I am going to try to see her many times before she leaves. I better bring tissue. Sorry if I rambled on.

Hi Lee -- congratulations on finishing the fingerless gloves -- they look great! I like your socks in the previous post, too. I'm just now going through some older emails in my Inbox, and found a comment you placed on my blog regarding lace tatting. I actually don't know how to do it, and was just an observer watching the woman in the picture on my blog, so I'm not sure where one learns this craft. I would suggest using Google to search on the words "lace tatting" and "bobbin lace", and you might be able to find some online tutorials. Good luck to you! And I hope you're staying cool in Egypt!
