05.28.10 :: 41 Months Old :: Yarn P0rn Friday


Sean is 41 months old today. One more month until he’s 3 and a half.

Today on my way to work I stopped by to visit Kate-the-Enabler for a glass of Iced Tea. (Way too hot outside for a hot cup of tea if you ask me!) I worked on a few squares for Babette while there. I also was surprised with a large ziploc bag filled with can tabs (from soda cans) for Sean’s (and Mack’s) school fundraiser. They’re still collecting can tabs for Mount Sinai hospital for wheelchairs. Thanks KTE! It was lovely to see you.

I picked up the kids from daycare after finishing work and we headed to the park.

The kids had fun blowing bubbles.

There was a really annoying kid at the park tonight.
One, who came with his grandfather who just came over from the other side of the world.
The grandfather was useless.
The kid knocked over our bubbles by ripping it out of Sean’s hands.
Not cool. Not too happy. He also was taking our toys (which I don’t mind sharing),
but he was throwing sand at all the kids in the sandbox. Not cool.
He looked to be between Mack & Sean’s age.
I love going to the park, but I don’t like it when other people can’t control their children.
I think I’m going to go buy sand to fill up our turtle sandbox.

Jamie went golfing today with his old baseball team very far away so he’s gone all day.
I treated the boys to a very special fave dinner of theirs.
My sister stopped by with a friend and her son, a nice visit,
which resulted my children to going to bed WAY past their bedtime.
The lucky ducklings. Maybe they’ll sleep in tomorrow.

Today’s Yarn P0rn Friday features this yarn that I picked up at Woolaroo in Abottsford, B.C.
It’s a nice black/grey skein of sport weight yarn. I think this will make a nice cowl or scarf.
I went into Woolaroo to meet my supplier (as they’re one of my suppliers)
and pick up a special order I had placed, and was shown this yarn.
It’s for now a sample in the shop, they’re not sure if they are carrying it or not.
I was able to get my hands on one skein.
It’s colorway 1250, of Zitron Unisono.

Off to go find out who won Survivor : Heroes vs. Villains. (Yep, we’re behind).

Ooh, that's a really nice yarn! I agree, it looks like it would make a really lovely cowl.
