Yarn along

This yarn along will be short and sweet. 
The girls went back to school on Monday and I went back to work.
Their buses are running at irregular times.
Hannah has swim practice four times a week.
Nadia has cheerleading practice twice a week.
Things have been busy and somewhat hectic...
At least I get to sit and read while I'm watching Hannah swim...
Still knitting on the Lavinia dress, but started a new book. :-)
Dieser yarn along ist kurz und buending.
Beide Maedels sind seit Montag wieder in der Schule und ich wieder auf der Arbeit.
Die Busse kommen zu total unterschiedlichen Zeiten.
Hannah ist im Schwimmteam und muss vier mal in der Woche trainieren.
Nadia hat zwei mal in der Woche Cheerleading Training.
Wir sind staendig unterwegs und es geht gerade recht hektisch zu...
Zumindest habe ich aber Zeit zum Stricken oder lesen waehrend ich mit Hannah beim Schwimmen bin...
Ich stricke immer noch an meinem Lavinia Kleid, habe aber wenigstens ein neues Buch angefangen. :-)

    Can you knit during the practice?

    1. Thankfully Mark, I can knit or read while Hannah practices. I think I need to get more involved once they go to swim meets...

    1. Thank you Sue! Thankfully hubby and I have worked it out so far. Once Nadia starts with actual football games we'll have to improvise. :-)

    1. Thank you Suz, I hope it turns out ok once it's all done. The book isn't creepy at all, it is a bit suspenseful and a pretty easy read.

    available right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
