I've wound up the 2nd ball of Polo for the woven trellis. For the 2nd tube, I'm incorporating into the green another color - which is the Millefili Fine yarn, which is actually by Filatura Di Crosa. The yarn that I'm mixing into tubes 2, 4, and 6 only, is 100% cotton. The Polo yarn, which I finally have the tag for the ball with me now in my office downstairs, is 60% cotton and 40% acrylic. I've never seen this yarn in stores, it ended up in my stash due to the most generous yarn fairy that visited me back in February (no sign of her since - lol). I just found a website that sells the Polo yarn, for 2.85 Euros each. Here is their Color card (and color 26 - which I'm using, is still on their color chart). 2.85 Euros is at today's exchange rate, 4.07$ CAD and 3.62$US. A pretty inexpensive ball of yarn. I wonder if it's a sale or something. I love the cotton feel to it, it doesnt feel like dishcloth cotton, so it'll definitely keep me warm, especially with 90 inches of scarf to wrap and wrap and wrap around!
Zeus cracks me up. It never fails to find him sleeping on our bed, with his paw or paws over his eyes. It's just soooo damn cute, I had to take a picture!
I wanted to post these the other day, but couldn't find where I put them, and while cleaning up today, I found them. I got them for my nephew for his 4th birthday, which his party is the weekend after next. I hope they are the right size, aren't they just the cutest. They're from Old Navy. They will be accompanying his other gifts, which include Curious George (the book - the original story), Star Wars Darth Tater Mr. Potatoe Head (below), a pair of Habs socks, a tam tam drum, and the slippers pictured above. A spoiled kid - I tell you. But, he was very very hard to shop for this year. I asked him what he wanted for his birthday this year, and all he said was a skateboard cake. (Which my sister-in-law is making him for his birthday)
And made a whole wheat apple cake. Mmmm, looks delicious.
This is the cake before the batter went on top. Lots of cinnamon - mmmm - delicious!
I felt like taking a picture of myself today. Here is me, 4 days into my 30th week of pregnancy:
Belly growing bigger and bigger by the day! Well, I feel like it is - anyhow. Here is the shirt I'm wearing, (below), I bought it at Old Navy last week when I picked up the duck feet slippers. Speaking of slippers, I need to invest in a new pair. My last pair - got completely distroyed - so I chucked them out a few days ago. Time for a new pair. (Can't seem to find a single pair I own!)
Incase you can't read the shirt, it says "COMING THIS WINTER". Cute eh? January baby - will be here before I know it, and I'll be somebody's mommy! I still can't believe it!
Pre-natal aqua today was a lot of fun. It was a semi-private class, it was just three of us. Deborah, Marie and myself. Marie and Deborah are both 24 weeks pregnant, due the same week. Deborah and I were talking today, and we discovered that we both grew up on the same street, about 6 houses down from one another, and both of our parents still live on the same street. I know exactly which house is hers (was hers) - how funny is that? I hope to keep in touch with her - she's a little older than me (Jamie's age) and due a month after me. It would be cool to keep in touch with her after, she's also having a baby boy. I am going to see her on Thursday night at Deep End Aqua, which pregnant, we're allowed to do, so maybe I'll invite her out for coffee or something. It would be nice to have someone to have playdates with after! Even if she does live back in the west around the corner from our parents!
Tonight, I've just been chilling out, watching Lword Season 1. I'm almost done Season 1, and I have Season 2 ready to go. After that, I have Season 3 already downloaded on my computer (god bless the new u torrent downloader, which I've just discovered. I am also currently downloading Las Vegas Season 3, since somewhere I lost track of it, and so that I can catch up for Season 4, which just started on Friday night. (I'm a TV junkie, what can I say?) Nothing else to do as a stay-at-home soon to be mom who just does freelance! LOL. Speaking of which, I'm re-designing my father's company's mousepads.... need to get cracking on it.
Today, I'll leave you with this: A conversation with a non-knitter:
Robyn says: it's a knitting needle, and yes i did thank you
Amy says: no prob
Alright, going to go fold laundry, and then off to bed. Maybe I'll be able to get up before noon tomorrow (today it was 11:30 am, which I thought was past noon, because I forgot to change my bedroom clock). I should do that tonight. That would be nice.
