november twenty-five :: 23 weeks old

*** Rockin' Sock Club Last Kit Spoiler - Read at your Own discretion - You've been warned! ***

Mack is 23 weeks old today.

He is getting better at sitting up!

He LOVES to smile at the camera!
And is VERY fascinated by it.

I got some yummy mail today - The last 2008 installment of the Rockin' Sock Club kit.

I also ordered a few things for my business from Bureau en Gros and had to order this along with it. I heart shoes. This tape dispenser rocks.

I also have to show off my new boots. I love them. I went to go buy Sean a pair of sneakers to leave at daycare and these were on severe liquidation. I was loving them when they were super expensive. On top of it it was buy one get one half off. How could I resist?

Snow. It's begun. I'm not sure whether I'm okay with it - or hating it. Ask me in a few weeks.

I never made it to Mack's swimming lesson this morning because of my winter boots. They wouldn't open on one shoe (the zipper) so that lead me to going nuts looking for the receipt, and after dropping Sean off to daycare, and dropping off Mack's new passport pictures at the passport office nearest me, I went to exchange the boots. I am SO happy that they had another pair in my size, because I love my new winter boots. But that resulted me in not getting to Mack's swim class. Oh well.

I spent the rest of the day doing some errands and then doing some work. It's been super busy around here lately.

There are a few projects that I want to cast on and some yarn that I am dying to use. First off, I'm dying to cast on for my February Lady Sweater - and trying out some Dream in Color Classy. I've never used it before. I also have some Wollmeise in the Digitessa colorway, that came along with the La Digistessa pattern from my Secret Pal 12 Pal that I got this past summer. I don't think I'll use it for La Digitessa (the pattern is 16 pages and a tad intimidating right now) but I'll definitely find a nice pattern for the yarn. It's sitting there calling my name. But no, I have some deadlines to finish first. I shall get to them!

Speaking of yarn! Robyn's Nest now carries lace weight! I plan on expanding this - but for now, we have 4 colorways!

It's One of a Kind hand dyed lace weight!

Yarnissima's patterns are just overly written. I knit her Firestarters, and it was the same. She goes into unnecessary detail. Be Thou Not Afraid.
