This afternoon blogless Janet came over to fondle some yarn (and purchase some too!), she comes knitting with me on the Wednesday that I go knitting. It was nice to have her over, and she fell in love with my cats (want one Janet?). (Can you see I'm a dog person?)
Sean was acting all cute this evening when we went to his uncle's for dinner. Here are some photos of my cutie!
Sean took a little rest with a bottle, and the Homer doll is BIGGER than Sean! He was confused to what this thing was that was bigger than him!
To Lynn - who posted a comment about the information on Sean's Blankie. I have no idea who you are - there is no information (blog or email) attached to your name, so if you send me an email here, I will tell you what you need to know to make a blankie of your own.
This evening I did some work and finally put Sean to sleep. All else is going to have to wait until tomorrow, I'm tired. Tomorrow we have a date with two knitters (and their kids) who live off the island of Montreal, so Jenn & I with our kiddies are going to meet them at a cafe for a snack and some knitting. I can't wait to meet Tara and her friend Kate (Blogless).
My grandmother (also Jenn's grandmother) called me up today to ask me if I had a subscription to Interweave Knits. I told her I did, and she mentioned that she is renewing Jenn's subscription and that she was going to renew mine as well, for after it ends. Thank you Bubbie! (Bubbie is Yiddish for Grandmother!) I asked her what the occasion was, and she said there wasn't any. That is super nice of her! I'm almost done my IK subscription, I think there is two more issues - so it'll just renew after that's over!
I did work a few rows on my father-in-law's IHS, and I have the dimensions now for his hat (I asked my mother-in-law to measure his last year's hat - which is one his mother made him with a matching scarf, which he wants to put away). Three more days to go. I CAN DO IT!
I am looking for 1 x 100g skein or 2 x 50g skeins of pure black sock yarn (non-acrylic). I want to use it for the edges of Sean's blankie. Anyone have that they want to de-stash? I need for approx. 56 grams (that's why I need either a 100g ball or 2 x 50g skeins, one just won't be enough). I was thinking maybe Regia #2066. I used to have some, but I think I sent it in a swap last year. Anyhow, I have Briggs & Little in black in my shop, but I wanted something superwash, as most of Sean's blankie is superwash. I do have Louet Gems, but I'm thinking fingering weight is a little too thin for his blanket. The Louet gems seems a little bit thiner than most of the stuff I've been using. Anyhow, I'm either looking to buy or trade if you have...! Let me know!
