we have lift-off!

Jesse and Scott had another great day at rocket club on Saturday, including a rocket drag race for a tie.
Jesse's Viper rocket on the left, another club member's on the right.

There are so many things that can go wrong at lift-off. That's why even the most experienced rocket enthusiasts hold their breath for the countdown and everybody cheers a successful launch and landing!

The same can be said of launching a new knitting project, especially if it's your first lace project...and your first time using beads...AND the first time reading a chart!

My mom started this Juno Regina stole when we were on vacation. Because of the above challenges combined with so many yarnovers on the diagonal, she has probably knit twice as many stitches as shown here and needed to tear half of them out for a redo, but she's all the way through the spiffy pattern at one end and should be able to fly through the long central portion without a problem.

We'll probably have to go on vacation together again when she gets to the diamonds on the other end ;-), but for the coming portion, the forecast is for a smooth flight.
