Rain, Rain Go Away

Probably most of you have heard of all the flooding and rain we received here in Western Washington a few days ago. Fortunately we live high enough above the rivers that we were not affected, but my heart and prayers go out to all of the families that have flood damage. The schools have been closed yesterday and today because quite a few of the school buildings in our district were flooded. The kids are enjoying their time off and we went out to Snoqualmie Falls today to see all the water pouring over. The mist was so heavy that we were completely soaked in about 1 minute of standing near the falls.

Crafting wise I am working on knitting a seamless baby sweater using some Softee Baby yarn that I have on hand. I am trying a new technique of adding the buttons onto a knit stitch on the same row as the button hole. This way I don't have to sew buttons on when I am done with the knitting ... so it really is a "no sew" sweater.

I totally understand the flooding. That was a terrible tropical storm wasn't it? Here in Lebanon our fields and ditches are full. Some cars were under water in some areas here in Oregon! Yes when it rains it pours!

Love the gloves you have been making. I need to find the pattern. I was thinking of making my kids them too!! You do beautiful work. love you Mary
