She's Finished!!

Never could decide upon a name to call her, but my FiberTrends Estonian Garden Scarf out of Knitpicks Alpaca Cloud. She's pinned to the livingroom rug blocking, hopefully tomorrow I'll have a chance to take a picture or 10 of her and post at least one here.

Over the weekend Chris bought me 4 balls of beige Kidsilk Haze and 4 balls of dark grey Kidsilk Haze. He's asked me a couple of times what I plan to knit out of it. Really I just plan to pull the yarn out of the bag and pet it. Hopefully I won't wear the yarn out before the perfect wrap pattern presents itself (perhaps one of the colors will be the Estonian Garden wrap...we shall see...).

Changing who can comment and other such things

I've not played with this blog much. I've had people say that they can't leave comments here, which suprised me as I didn't think that you needed an account to comment here.

My mom has been visiting for a week which means lots of busy-ness. Actually with the kids in school it just means a new twist on an old routine. She drove out in her sporty new little car (which my brother and I knew nothing about), and didn't have room to bring her usual assortment of junk and can't shop for a lot to take back with her. We've knitted and visited and toted kids around to various things. She was here to watch Robert get all gussied up for his first date and, of course, got to see K's dance class, and B's karate class. Her visit has sped by she'll be back at my house Sunday night then she's heading home.

My little ballerina girl

Miss K had her first "Twinkle Toes" dance class this past Wednesday morning. As we dressed her up for her "debut" I decided that to be a true ballerina girl she must wear her shrug. She was quite pleased with looking like a ballerina girl, but truthfully, she adores her tap maybe she won't be ballerina girl, maybe she'll be tap girl.

Hey!! I can finish something!!!

I know, I know I finish quite a few things. But truly most of them have some sort of deadline. Kind of like that big report in school that needs to be done next Tuesday and no later than next Tuesday. I have felt like I've been knitting this top forever, and I was never going to finish it because I kept mucking it up and having to frog it and start again. For the most part I'm happy with it and while I was leary of the yarn (shine, or shimmer whatever one is cotton and modal from Knitpicks) because it sure did lint while knitting, it's washed up beautifully and I'll probably order some more. You can't complain about an unexpensive sweater!! So here's a picture of me and my new sweater (and new pants too, that the dog jumped up on and left some nice footprints) taken by my favorite 7 year old photographer.
