August 21 of 31

First off, Golden Purl is having a contest. If you also tell Golden Purl that I sent you, I get an extra chance in the contest - please don't forget to mention me! (Thanks!)

This morning Sean had his last Aquababies class for the summer session. It starts up again in October, and I'm putting him in the next level up (6 months plus). At the beginning it was a private lesson, until two other mothers showed up, who I haven't seen before, but they were allowed to attend the class (weird). I thought Registration started now for next session, but not until next week.

Today I got to hang out with Kadi & Michelle. And we did a LYS crawl. It was a lot of fun. We went to Mouline, La Bobineuse de Laine, Effiloche and A La Tricoteuse (which turned out to be closed today?)

The actual original Camera Case was in my car today. I had to photograph it. And of course Michelle had to photograph me photographing it.


As you can see, Sean was a REALLY good boy while we were out yarn shopping.



Michelle picked up quite the stash enhancement at La Bobineuse de Laine.

Sean went after the Colinette Jitterbug at Effiloche. Trained him well. LOL.

And here is my loot from today:

Socks for me.

Socks for me. (LOOK PURPLE!)


Socks for Jamie.

Not sure what for me... but I loved that it had sparkle green in it!

And some 100% wool Fleece Artist Roving. Must learn.

The girls came back to my place afterwards for some pink Oreos and drinks.
This evening I watched Big Brother with Jamie and worked on my 2nd Sleeve for the Turtleneck Shrug. I'm at row 135 of 155 and then I just have to do the decreases for the shoulder. All that's next is the neck part, and I'm done. So many other things to knit, I'm hoping that I finish this one up soon.


Thursday is Angela's birthday, so she's coming over tomorrow night (Kadi too), for dinner, and we'll hang out and celebrate with some knitting. I do have some errands to run tomorrow, chores to take care of, and some Robyn's Nest stuff to do.

I must stop eating sunflower seeds. It's making a HUGE mess.
