Busy weekend

I am so tired it hardly seems possible that I can still be awake, but somehow I am. The weekend has gone in a flash but I'm not complaining, in fact I'm quite pleased that it's Sunday. The reason is because I've spent the weekend at a guide and ranger camp and not a lot of sleep happened. It was an indoor camp so we had plenty of home comforts including mattresses. I think we had lots of fun, my six rangers chose to do line dancing, cooking, knitting and a scavenger hunt which had them finding very innovative ways to collect the items on their lists. All of the above where things they really wanted to do. They're a great bunch of girls. I had great fun teaching them all to cast on and knit. One girl already knew how to knit so I taught her to purl and another learnt to do YOs, K2TOGS and SKPSSOs (slip one, knit one, pass slip stitch over. We also did a camp fire singalong, musical instruments, and lots of games. If we could have got the girls to sleep before midnight though it would have been so much better.
Hey Teach was finished on Thursday evening while I watched the USA Vs Belgium water polo. It was a great match. Although it was getting pretty late for me. There was no time to post until tonight 18.30 Sunday. Phew. So just by the skin of my teeth I made it to the end of the Olympics. 2 out of three ain't bad as Meatloaf would say.

Tomorrow I plan to catch up with every one's blogs and see what sort of weekends you've all had. Hope they were fun and have a great week.

Thanks for your nice comment on my Ravelympics project! Your's is also nice. At first glance I thought the lace was crocheted pineapples! I guess after my crochet project, everything is looking that way! Your weekend at camp sounds like a lot of fun!
