My sunflower is doing great!
And my pumpkin is starting to turn orange!
Sean started class this morning at the Y.
He was a handful this morning though. He didn't want to sit at the table during art, screamed when they took away the glue, didn't want to sit during circle time on the rug, didn't want to stay at the table during snack time, you name it.... It was constant chasing after him today.
In yarnie news:
I've been winding mini-skeins for myself from leftovers - each one is the EXACT amount I need for one square on my blanket and even with a tad bit leftover (for leeway).
A close up of the mini-skeins. I need to count what I have here, but I still think I need a lot more for the project. I'm not repeating any colorway twice in there.
Updated view of the whole blankie so far. 64 squares.
And the last 4 added on. 1- Artyarns Ultramerino4, 2 - Dream in Color Smooshy in Some Summer Sky, 3 - Dream in Color Smooshy in In Vino Veritas and 4 - Noro Kureyon Sock Yarn.
Even Mack tonight at West Island Knits enjoyed the blanket, as it was mad freezing in the restaurant. Next time we go, I will bring extra blankets for him and a sweater for me.
Now that SP12 is winding down to an end, I want to show you what Cynthia made me. I couldn't blog about it earlier, as her pal Tara had received one and I didn't want Tara to figure out who her pal was that was spoiling her. But now that Cynthia revealed herself, I can show you! Cynthia made me a notions pouch large enough to put knitting needles in it. Isn't it just gorgeous? I admire Cynthia's sewing skills! She's awesome.
Speaking of sewing lessons, I'm still looking for a class to take. The lady I'd called that I had her number, she returned my call finally and the school is shutting down after 30 years, and the woman is no longer giving classes. Oh well. I hope something else turns out. I'm dying to learn a few techniques.
Speaking of sewing..... I had to make another bottle holder for Mack. We seem to have lost the first one I made. But now I'm a pro, and the new one is super awesome. I did a few things better on v.2.0. and I like it a lot more. I'm going to look tomorrow at the mall in lost and found to see if maybe it's there?
Happy birthday Jenn!
