This is going to be drive by posting....! A lot to still do tonight before going to bed. I've got to get up really early (before the roosters) tomorrow, as we're leaving for Rhinebeck!
Here is the loot from the other night from the Knitting Guild. My fave part - the Twist Collective tape measure. It's too bad the little bits of samples aren't enough for a square on the blanket project. Oh well.
Today's earrings. But for some reason, I feel like I may have worn these already during this photo project of shooting my earrings? Hmph!
Have you ever had this happen to you? Diet Coke explosion? Holy crap! What a mess....! I've never had this happen to me before. I'm baffled to be honest. Not sure how the can split down the side the way it did!
I had Madeleine over this afternoon for some tea that we never ended up drinking, but we wound some yarn, talked, baked apple cakes, and hung out with Mackie. It was a nice afternoon indeed. We looked up patterns on Ravelry and it was a lovely afternoon. She also gave me this skein of Fleece Artist to make a hat for Mr. Mack. I think I can get 2 hats out of it, and make one for Sean too! Thanks Madeleine!
Mr. Mack wouldn't let go of my ball winder.... he's such a funny little guy. He's starting to grasp onto things, though he's not into toys yet. Though, he likes rings/links. So I've attached some to his car seat. He's also in the mist of trying to figure out how to flip over. He hasn't successfully done it yet, but soon, I'm sure. He's got to figure out how to put his one arm that he keeps getting stuck on, and then he'll get it!
I got a lot done today, I'm very happy with the list of to do that is just getting shorter and shorter and shorter! Phew! I missed a yarn delivery for the shop this morning while out running an errand, so I'll get that on Monday when I return from the USA. I'll keep ya wondering all weekend long what I have coming to the shop! I'm evil, I know.
The deadline to enter my contest (3 yr blogaversary contest) is Sunday night, October 19th, 2008. (I'm returning home either Sunday night or Monday from the trip, so that's why I'm ending it then). I'll announce the winners on the 21st, (Tuesday) which is my actual Blogaversary! Wow, I can't believe I've been blogging daily since then. (Except for the few days I was in the hospital giving birth to each boy!) That's the only blog break I've taken.
A huge thank you for an early gift from my Booty Swap pal! Thank you Shan for getting me the Waffles duo bundle pattern! I can't wait to knit it up for the boys!
The hotel we're staying at has Wifi, so you'll catch me around this weekend! Jamie's super excited to have a weekend to himself! He better enjoy it - kid free! Now... how do I get a vacation from the boys - even for just a few hours!? LOL. I love them to pieces, but sometimes a mom just need a break!
Hope to see you at Rhinebeck!
