The Summer Olympics are in full swing & I've been watching as much as possible. I just finished the USA women's semi-final against Dominican Republic. Whew! We won it! The Ravellenic Games are also in full swing & I'm working on my scarf swap scarf for the games. Not sure if I'll finish by Sunday or not. It'll be close. There's been too much dancing for me to really spend a lot of time on it.

Now...the real reason for this post is a little bragging. You may know that I am the moderator for the Folk Shawls forum on Ravelry. I've been doing this for several years. It's a pretty low activity forum but I try to be conscientious & a good mod by checking in every few days & replying when I can. Cheryl Oberle posts pretty frequently & is great about answering questions there. Last week I got a real shock. A PM from Cheryl thanking me for me dedication to the group & she gave me a pattern for a new shawl that she's written called Faroette. I was so excited & thrilled! I cast on for the shawl on Sunday & I think it's going to be pretty quick & mindless. Which is great!

I am still working on crochet baby things for Market Days in Sept.
