Happy 4th of July

Knitting: I finished the hufflepuff scarf before midnight last night. CO the night of July 1 and finished at 11:43 pm July 3. It is knit w/19 (us size) needles and yarn used is yellow and black fun fur and yellow and black worsted weight acrylic. Not sure if I want to use fringe or not. Until I decide than the ends won't be woven in. Time to choose a new project what will it be? Should I put all my ideas on slips of paper and then draw them out of a basket? Or should I p/u some embroidery project that has been languishing in bags for years? I still have a scarf on the needles so there is knitting going to be done.

Here is a close up of the scarf. The open lace work can't be seen.

This is all that is left. Not enough for another set of stitches in the project but to much to discard. Oh what to do? Don't want to keep it in stash as I need to make more space for my comfort shopping.
I don't like blogger as you need to upload your pix in reverse order of how you want them to appear. Oh well. What happens when a 2 yr. old gets into 1/2 a case of creamers and opens one up? She also dumped the open one all over the remaining creamers inside of the box. Needless to say the said creamers get a shower, then are put on a towel to dry off.
Here are some of the creamers in my shower. She was a very busy girl tonight.

Today was spent watching a parade no pix as I forgot the camera. I have one on my phone but cannot retrieve pix from it yet. And to top it all off I missed the perfect one of Bumpkins meeting the goat. When we got home Thing one and Two were upset that we didn't take them w/us to the parade. I didn't think that they wanted to go as this parade was small town- they are used to Seattle parades. Then we went out to the camp for a potluck dinner. Bumpkins didn't nurse all day, she didn't eat either. Bumpkins ate a red dum dum and didn't break out. She was hyper and mean, but that could be from a lot of sugar and no sleep. DH is practicing songs for his new band. They have a gig this Friday. Ultimately they want to go on a USO tour. I say get a job!!!! But as a supporting wife blah blah blah blah I have to go w/what he wants. That isn't worded right. I will support him in some of his plans and pray that God has a hand on him.

Todays weather rainy, cloudy, rainy. The sun came out for the parade.

The Hufflepuff scarf looks good! What if you just made a finger chain out of the leftover yarn, call it a necklace, bracelet, or ring, depending on the length, and give it w/ the scarf/wear it with the scarf??
