After the race, I picked up my dad at the airport as he came down to see me get baptized. Also, my Aunt Karen and Uncle Bill were able to make it up for the weekend. It was so wonderful to have my friends and family there to witness, as much as I didn't want to give my testimony. Yes, I had to get up in front of everyone and explain my spiritual journey. And seeing as how it alllll started with my mom's cancer diagnosis, I was nervous to explain such an emotional event. And I almost lost it. I started speaking and whooosh, here come the tears. I was able to pull it together and finish up. I understand now why they have us do that, it's so rewarding to be able to be in a roomful of people that 'get it'. And a friend of mine was kind enough to take pictures for me because, let me tell ya!, I don't remember it much. :)
So, I am pooped. Ready to just hang out and relax the rest of my night away. I hope you enjoy yours!

Slightly less than one month after starting, I've finished. And I absolutely love it! It was a well written pattern, I chose a lovely yarn, and it turned out to be a well matched set.
Pattern: Laminaria by Elizabeth Freeman
Started: March 15, 2008
Finished: April 12, 2008
Yarn: MiniMaiden from HandMaiden Fine Yarn
I used slightly less than two skeins of yarn. While blocking, I realized how much I love the ruffly edge that was created during bindoff, so I left it.
