Here it is now. I know, I know. It doesn't look much different. But it does...I tinked back 4 rows of yarn overs, slip stitches, Knit 5 pass 4 over, etc. and so on. It's amazing how quickly one can screw something up and how long it takes to undo it. So I'm going for a simpler boarder of my own making. We'll see how that turns out. I finished one row of it last night and I plan to finish the rest tonight....while watching Dallas - I am so pathetically hooked...again.
And yes, that is the Herringbone poncho in the back. Almost done with it. Yeah, I know I said I was going to finish it at the beach and I almost did. Then I made the mistake of leaving it sitting on the sofa. Someone was kind enough to move it and some stitches fell off...really my own fault. So I had to go back about eight or nine rows. It was a little frustrating but not too bad.
In case you didn't know, I'm on a self imposed UFO quest. No, I'm not looking for martians (found him yesterday). I am trying to get those items up there, and a couple of more, completed before I start anything else. I figured out that I have five WIPs. MUST. GET. THEM. DONE. Just so I can start a lot more...all those skeins and patterns in baggies waiting patiently...to sit in the basket next to the sofa.

I want to thank you sweet people for your kind comments and support while getting Number One Son ready for college. You are all correct in that it is a very bittersweet thing. I'm doing OK right now....next Thursday will probably be another story, I'm sure. Can you say water works? But you all have been so there for me and I really do appreciate it. Your support has helped me keep a smile on my face and tears out of my eyes. The person who probably appreciates it the most is my son....he can't stand it when his Mama gets teary eyed and clingy. It's so embarrassing. So thanks bunches!
