So I'm still looking for my 6500th commenter on this blog. I can't believe the comments are that high! Keep 'em coming. I am sure I'll have a contest before the 10,000th commenter (but that's a milestone number!) Maybe again for the 7777th commenter or the 8888th commenter. Something like that. For sure. I like numbers. You like prizes. Win - win! Anyhow, above is the start to the prize that I'm putting together. There is a skein of cashmere/silk (which I believe is handspun), a skein of 100% baby apalca, and 2 skeins of sock yarn (50g each). All will come - with some other goodies I'm putting together, in this Gap Tote Bag. I bought 2, kept 1 for myself, (which I love) and I'm giving the other (identical except for color) away. It's a great project toting bag.
I'm destashing this skein of Madelinetosh Yarn in Beach Towel, from the Woolgirl Sock Club. The colors aren't me. I'm selling it for 25$ with the two patterns that come with it. Let me know if you're interested in it - first come first serve.
Last night, Sean slept the entire night in his big boy bed. He didn't even get out of it this morning. He called for us - like he used to do from his crib. I guess he's not used to the idea yet that he can crawl out of his bed. We put a foot stool at the end of the bed for easier access, and the side has a safety rail, so he doesn't roll out of bed. Nap time today in his big boy bed was very successful as well. I am so happy! We're going to keep the crib in his room for 2-3 more weeks, and then give it back to my dad's best friend, from whom we borrowed it from. Mack has his crib - which was originally Sean's in his nursery. Sean had moved to the big boy room, and instead of taking apart his crib and moving it - Mack got the nursery and we borrowed a crib. (If we should have a third child - to try for a girl (12% chance of that happening after 2 boys though), I will wait until Mack is at least 2 and a half and already in a big boy bed. This way, we have a crib for the nursery. But, that won't be for a while, but that's what the option is.
I got a lot of knitting done today, and am working on the 2nd sleeve on the Moss Block Cardigan. I hope to have it done soon. I'll just have to seam it together and do the button band. (Once the last sleeve is done, I've got about 1/3 knit already. It's a fast knit once you get into it. But I had a ton of stuff that was interrupting this project!
This evening we sat on the couch (and while I knitted) we watched the World Junior hockey tournament (Canada won a crazy game today against Russia I believe) and we watched some more of the show Damages. We're really liking it. I think Season 2 has just begun, or is beginning. I need to look into it.

- I am a 30-something mom who knits, and takes pictures, a lot. I am a mother to 3 adorable boys, Sean (Dec 2006), Mackenzie (June 2008) & Quentin (Nov 2010). This is my journey through motherhood, photography, the books I read, life in general and knitting, of course. Oh, and other crafts too!
