Back to School

I really don't want to go back but I'll be finished in December -- until I decide what I want to be when I grow up.
I have lots of knitting to complete which is going to require some careful planning and prioritizing. I have some items in my stash that are just crying to come out and play.
This is also the end of my 4-day work weeks so it's back to the normal schedule.

Phone ringing...
Jen: Hello
nice lady: Hello. Helena, you sound horrible. Are you feeling okay, dear?
Jen: Sorry, this is not Helena. This is Jennifer.
nice lady: Oh, is this the Burton residence?
Jen: No, sorry you have the wrong number. You've reached the (name changed to protect the innocent) home.
nice lady: Oh, I am sorry. I have used the wrong speed dial button again. No wonder I didn't recognize your voice. You are the housesitter. Sorry to bother you.
Jen: No bother. Good-bye.
nice lady: Bye.

Burton residence???? Helena???? She thought I was Helena Bonham-Carter? Shut up! I should have looked through their address book and found Tim Burton's phone number and address. I am a huge fan.

Edward Scissorhands is my favorite but I don't mind being the Bride.

For Me Knitalong Completed Shawl

Here is the completed shawl from my first knitalong. The pattern is free from Crystal Palace and I used Knit Picks Shine Worsted in coral.
This weekend I would like to finish my cabled tank top and frog the striped hat. It's too long even with the gathered ribbon attached.

In unrelated news, I wanted to post a picture of me and my Lo. This is us (really just her) bartending at a family party in San Diego last weekend. The theme was 60's but we slowly shed our costumes. I don't usually wear bright blue eye shadow but it matched my hair.

This is me and my Aunt Marge enjoying the tequila!
