Still life, with ribbons

Not bad, if I do say so myself. I didn't do as well in the knitting section as I usually do, but on the other hand there was the surprise big win in the woven-basket section to balance things out. And, look, tubbysnuggles--Oliver's sweater got a ribbon!

For those of you who track lotteries, pachinko winnings, and suchlike, my total prize money was $15.75: $3 for the blue, $1.50 for the red, $1.25 for the white, and $10 for the sweepstakes premium. Better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.

Even better news, though--I heard from my former student who's at the University of Minnesota, and he (with his wife and kindergarten-age son) were safely in Bulgaria visiting their families/doing dissertation research when that bridge collapsed in Minneapolis. All their friends are safe, too. A very, very good note to launch the weekend.

Oh, and I've been meaning to post a picture of my sabbatical basketmaking adventure, so here goes--these are the ones I've made this year, and I can't wait to go back to another class. The woman who teaches the classes is phenomenal; I wish I were half that good at teaching freshmen to write.
