My Cousins' Blogs

I'm writing this post from my aunt and uncle's computer in Texas! I've helped my cousin Austin make a blog, and I've also been teaching her to knit! She's catching on very quickly. Here's a picture of the two of us knitting. She wants you all to see her blog. It's She'd love it if you'd leave a comment about her knitting!!! (or anything else!) I also helped my cousin Brett make a blog. He only has one post so far, but he'd love for you to read it! It's I'll write more about my trip once I come home.

I finished my very first pair of socks! I had been wanting to make some, and then someone sent me this great tutorial. I didn't have any trouble at all! Knitting on the round took some getting used to at first, but after the first little bit it was pretty easy. It's definitely rewarding having a finished pair of socks. I used "Harlequin" in the color "Polar Ice". It was really fun to work with! I can't wait to start my next pair!

Hooked on DW

I finally tried the DW cloth! Everyone has always said how pretty it is, how much they enjoy making it, etc, but I've never actually tried it. It's been on my "To do" list for months. Yesterday, I decided to try. Here's the finished product! I just love it! It was so easy, and it's even prettier than the picture! I plan on making many more.

SIP (Summer in Progress)

I haven't posted in awhile. Here's what I've been doing! I went on a missions trip to Mississippi with my church. It was really fun! 3 of my best friends went, I made lots of new friends, and we were able to help many people. Here is a group picture. I'm the one on the bottom left. (Yes, I know my eyes are closed. The sun was bright, and we took pictures with about 20 cameras)
We're next to what used to be a bank. All that's left is the vault. For July 4th, we went to my grandparents house. It was great! We went swimming, and then watched fireworks at our friends lake house. In this picture, I'm with my cousin Reed (who asked for the Lion cloth) 'being' a sparkler. He's my buddy! We had a great time together. Here I am actually holding a sparkler. I know it's blurry, but it's the only one I had. I actually got burned, but it really didn't hurt much. The day after we came home, my cousins from Texas came! I hadn't seen them in a year, and we had so much fun! Austin is 6, Brett is 4, and Addison is 11/2. I felt 6 again! Austin and I did everything from making "Flower Fairies" to writing books (we wrote 2, Allie, the Princess who Loved to Ice-Skate and Caroline, the Princess who Loved to Draw. She wrote the stories, and we both did the illustrations.) to having a tea party! Here's a picture. It was really fun! I miss doing things like that. :) They were here until yesterday. It was sad to see them go, but I'm flying to Texas in a few weeks, so I'll see them soon. It's been a great summer so far!
