Anyhow, I also picked up some yarn today for my father-in-law's hat & scarf that he has requested. The one he is wearing now, he's been wearing for 30 years apparently (not religiously) but his mother made it (she has since passed on). Anyhow, he wants to put away the hat & scarf, and wants a new set! So I picked him up a charcoal grey color, the same color of yarn that I made Jamie's Irish Hiking Scarf. I'm thinking about doing the same pattern for my father-in-law, and make him an Irish Hiking Hat. I love the pattern. Anyhow, I picked him up (cough) acrylic yarn, because I know my in-laws and (cough) acrylic is the way to go. However, I picked up Red Heart Soft Touch, and it's actually pretty soft, and not too acrylic-y (which I HATE the feeling of).... Yes, I'm a yarn snob. But I just know that whatever I make has to be 100% machine washable, and so I thought that this would be perfect yarn. Plus I think wool is too scratchy for him. (Allergies or something). I picked up color 7936 which is a charcoal grey. I'll photograph it once I start his projects - which will be once I'm done with Sean's sweater, and my sister's camera case cozy (and I should finish the married socks already. Jamie's dying to wear his!)
On my way to my parents house I dropped off a gift to someone who just had a baby boy 8 days ago, and in the parcel was this shirt that I made an iron-on for:
I absolutely love this picture of my sister & I. We both look fantastic - I think! My hair was just straightened, and you can tell I'm slowly losing the baby weight! My face is starting to look back to normal! And I love my freshly waxed eyebrows, just love them!
Wow, I can't believe Sean is 2 months already! Happy Two Months Sweetie! I really do NOT know where time goes. Flies by, really! He's not sitting by himself, not yet, but we managed to snap this picture really fast before he started slouching in the chair. This rocking chair actually used to belong to my siblings & I when we were kids. It's probably almost as old as I am. There used to be a matching table with chairs, but those were unfortunately sold in a garage sale - which apparently is regretted today.
Sean's 2 month check up was postponned as you know, so it will be in a week from today. Since my mom can't come with me, and Jamie has to work, my grandmother will come keep me company, since she'll be back from Florida. It's not that I can't go alone, because I can go alone, I just don't want to. I don't have any reason as to why... I just want it that way. Moral support maybe? Or just to help me out as well, incase Sean reacts to the shots, and I just want someone there to help me with stuff, if I need to calm him down, etc. All good.
Make sure your speakers are on!
