My sassy girl plays softball and the way softball playoffs work is double elimination. You have to lose twice to get eliminated. Playoff started yesterday. 

Yesterday's game was an almost 4 hour long endurance game (they have to play at least 4 innings). They won 28-27. 

Tonight well was different. It was hot and humid and the poor girls were spent quickly. They lost 12-3.   Tomorrow they play again. 
This is what I do while cheering my sassy one on 

More left over squares. Easy and I don't have to look at to knit. :)

Here is my second attempt at that tatting snowflake 
Almost done right. I twisted 1 join and have no idea how. I am working on a "new" way to tat. Basically instead of having a bunch of ends to weave in it's a mostly continuous method. I managed one Christmas wreath and am currently working on a second. No pictures of either yet.  The second one I'm using real tatting thread. Found it on clearance for .79 cents (orginally 4.99). I only bought one of each color, why I don't know. Even my daughter said to buy it all. Stores don't carry this stuff anymore. Oh well I just had a couple of bucks anyway. Maybe they will still be there next week. Fingers crossed:)
