His Senior Prom

Friday, May 2, 2008 was JLM's Senior Prom. Where did the years go? The kids were all decked out in their finery and paraded in the decorated HS gym to the delight of parents, grandparents and etc. His date was Heather who is completing her first year at Monmouth College. As you can see she is a lovely girl on the outside and inside as well (as far as I can tell). We got to meet her parents and both sets of grandparents. I persuaded JLM to take a nice picture with MG , but I had to take it fast before the "bunny ears" entered the scene.

On Sunday, MG made her First Holy Communion. I completed her bolero at 1am on Sunday morning. I don't really have a good picture of it (yet), and it isn't that exciting anyway, but it is my 2nd finished garment and it fits her beautifully. She gets cold in the summer in restaurants and the like due to the low airconditioning, so I hope she will get some good wear out of it. It is made from Berroco Comfort yarn (which is Acrylic, but a really NICE Acrylic), DK weight, US 4 needles. From the Summer 2005 issue of Interweave, purchased at Wild Fibers, Galena, IL the first weekend in April. started April 13, completed May 4. Hat tip to Wild Fibers for finding the pattern for me, it was exactly what I wanted.
