Bowling

Justin bowled in a tournament this afternoon. It was a regional tournament sponsored by Pepsi.

He did well. His average has dropped to 138 this year. His scores today were 158, 152, and 130. So he was pleased.

The tournament was held in a PBA practice bowling center. It had 2 stories of lanes. It was the largest center we had ever been to.

After the tournament we stopped in Cincinnati at Joann's Fabric to find a zipper for Kaity's spring sweater. They didn't have what I needed so I had to buy one 4 inches too long.

I will cut the top and whip stitch new stops. Anyone have any wisdom for that to share with me? I've cut zippers on the bottom and zig zagged over for sewing. But the zipper sewn to the fabric was always enough to stop it from pulling apart.

I won't have to actually sew the zipper in for a few days. Right now I'm stuck in sleeve hell. I usually knit sleeves as I knit the sweater. I keep a sleeve in our bedroom and the sweater by my chair in the TV room But I had to knit the body of this one first to see exactly how big around I need the sleeves to be. I can't increase or decrease and keep the lace pattern even.

Hope you're having a good week end!

Tell Justin congratulations. Does he bowl for a school team too, or is he homeschooled too?

Congrats to Justin on his great bowling. And I have no idea about the zipper. I hate sewing machies. Good luck. Would you consider ordering the correct zipper online?
