So I thought I missed the deadline to have my paper work in for the Oregon State Fair. I went to check and I still have a few days, however, I'm going to be leaving for Maui on the 30th and I won't be back until August 13th, 2 days after the drop off day. I guess I could ask some one really nicely to drop my stuff off, but I've been a slacker and the sweater and scarf I was going to enter are not done. They could be done by the 11th, but they can't be done by the 29th. Oh well. There's always next year.

And why should I be complaining at all, I'm going to Maui! Sabrina is going to meet her lelong and all her aunties and uncles.

Besides showing Sabrina off, we're really going to Richard's brother's wedding. I need to find something to wear! Nothing I own fits, my body hasn't decided what it's going to do. The maternity clothes are too big, but my old pants won't button! ACK!

At first when I saw the link on Mason-Dixon Knitting, I thought it was cool. Then when I clicked the link, I didn't think it was cool... but then I tried it and I guess it is pretty cool!

On the knitting front, I'm most of the way through my Mabel's Scarf. I am using the recommended Malabrigo Merino Worsted. I just started the second skein, but I don't think I'll use the whole thing. I have only been knitting on the bus, so nobody had seen the scarf. I brought it out at scrapbooking night and now everyone wants one for Christmas. I guess that's fine as long as I start now. $22 for the yarn and tons of hours knitting with it are worthy of Christmas presents. I was already thinking of knitting one for my dad out of either black or a charcoal.

I'm seriously debating buying the Country Kiddie pattern. I think it will look adorable on Sabrina. If I buy it now, I can *maybe* have it done before vacation (Maui, here we come!)
