Happy Gay Pride

Hope everyone who is out in San Francisco enjoys themselves this weekend.
Tomorrow is the big parade. I will not be out. My parents use to go and watch the parade every year when they were mobile. Everyone stay safe.

I'm working this weekend. The weather has been great. Foggy in the morning and then the sun comes out later in the day. I love it. Not to warm, but sun.
Finished a 5 hour baby sweater. Took about a week. I have a friend who can make one in 5 hours. I guess I don't knit that fast. Need to finishe up Brian's sweater.
We had an ok trip up to my parents. I had a migrane on the trip. Not a good way to travel. It wasnt' to hot up there so that helped.

Earthquakes and Tsunami's

I live 6 blocks from the Pacific Ocean.
I hear we've had a few earthquakes in California this week. Didn't know about any of them or the Tsunami warning we had on Tuesday.
So I guess I'm not worried. LOL
We have a system im place so we can be warned about these things. Of course the people in power are suppose to know about the warning so they can warn us. System doesn't work if those is power know nothing.
On the knitting front. I am almost finished with the second sleeve of Brian's sweater. I will shorten the first sleeve before I start to put the sweater together.

So while today looked beautiful on the surface, underneath it was very cold. The wind was like a north wind.
Found the red skein I needed to work on Brian's sweater. So I'm knitting away again. Would be nice if I could get the sweater finished this week. I know I won't but I can wish.

Can you guys believe that summer is almost here? San Francisco has had some very nice days out at the beach. I may go for a walk tonight. I've walked from BART to work the past few nights I've worked. It has been that nice in Oakland and Berkeley. Wish it could be like that all the time. Finished my second Clapotis. Working on Brian's sweater. I need to find the red yarn to work on his sweater. Wonder where I left it.
