September 17 of 30

Stuff I want to knit:

Cable Luxe Maxi
(bought the pattern from Lion Brand - it's not a PDF, so I have to wait for it in the mail)

Military Jacket from Veronik Avery's Knitting Classic Style


I plan on making it in Eco + (as the pattern calls for) in colorway 7072. I think it'll be great.


I also want to knit:



Red Herring by Cookie A from Fall 2006 Knitty
(Saw Alison's version and fell in love!)

Today Sean & I slept in, which felt great, and then I actually got a lot of chores accomplished today. My sister & mother came over in the late afternoon and played with Sean for the rest of the afternoon and I got a few more things done. I went to pre&post natal aqua tonight and I felt great afterwards. Jamie & I watched the pre-season opening Habs game against Pittsburgh, and we won in overtime 3-2. It was great to see Crosby on the ice. The Habs are playing Pittsburgh again tomorrow night, and Malkin will be on the ice tomorrow instead of Crosby. The Habs tried out a bunch of players they have from the minors, and we'll see whom we'll be keeping. Tonight in nets was Huet and Danis, and tomorrow night we're trying out Halak and Carey Price (who won MVP in the minors last year and helped them win the "Stanley Cup" in their league.

Tomorrow Jamie & I celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. Last year, we were in Europe in Gibraltar on our 1st wedding anniversary. Tomorrow Jamie & I will be going out for dinner, and Sean's sleeping over at his grandparents house. I'll be dropping him off there tomorrow after a stroller walking group we joined in the West Island (down the street from my parents house). I am looking forward to some fresh air and some exercise! Now, I need to go find where I put the card I bought Jamie. He's getting a sock & almost a half for our anniversary (I'll probably finish the sock by the weekend). I've already gotten him a box of hockey cards from the series that he collects, which we opened together - about 2 weeks ago. He pulled some nice cards from that series, which is a good thing. I am also on the lookout for a good price on a Habs Practice Jersey (the new Reebok one), as he would like one as well to wear the hockey games, etc.


Alright, I'm extremely tired from the aqua class, and I have to get up early for the stroller walking group - so I'll be off now! (I did manage to break my record in bowling on Nintendo Wii tonight. I bowled a 200! (My highest score before was 191). I would never be able to bowl this great in "real life" at a bowling alley - LOL!)

How did I miss that military jacket when I looked up the book? I'll have to go back to Indigo...

And Happy 2nd anniversary to you and Jamie! My gift to you are a set of 350-thread cotton sheets from Crate and Barrel. Imagine what you could do in those...

I'm actually thinking of joining a post-natal yoga class (with baby!). Gotta get back in shape!

Happy early anniversary! I was just looking through my lion brand catalogue (that I haven't gotten in a long time) and saw that. Can't wait to see all those projects!
