Sean is 38 months old today.
(3 years old & 2 months).
Mackenzie learned how to brush his teeth on his own.
This afternoon I met up with Tara, Caroline & Madeleine. Kadi was supposed to join us as well, we try to meet up at least every other month as a group, but Kadi had to unfortunately cancel. We chatted, we snacked, I played photographer doing a mini-photo shoot (which was really fun by the way) & I worked on my 2nd sleeve. I wanted to make sure it was done tonight before the Closing Ceremonies ended.
Pattern: February Lady Sweater (My Ravelry Project)
Yarn: Dream in Color Classy in Blue Lagoon
Needles: US 8 / 5.0 mm
Timeline: February 12-28, 2010
Modifications: Knit pattern as written for the Medium Size
(As my measurement was smack in the middle between the S & the M size)
Opinion: I love it. I do need to block it. What an easy fast knit! I am still in shock that I just knit a sweater in 2 weeks' time.
And just like that, I achieved GOLD for Team Montreal! Until next time!
While out today somehow I talked about a skein of yarn that I had gotten in a swap back in 2006. It’s by “Painted Yarns”. The dyer of this yarn passed away in 2007. I realized that this yarn is not in my stash, but now it is. I realized it wasn’t in my stash when I went to go find it to find more info on it. I have no idea what to do with this lonely skein (260 yards). It seems to be on Ravelry listed as a DK. I guess that looks about right. Anyhow, I need a good project for it. So I ask you, my dear blog readers, what is your fave one skein project that I could do with 260 yards. (No ankle sock suggestions please). It’s a gorgeous color and I think it’s been marinating in my stash long enough.
Now that I have finished my February Lady Sweater, which I still can’t believe that I did in such a short time frame, I have another project up my sleeve, which I will talk about tomorrow.
This evening we all had a good laugh. We went out for dinner with my in-laws, sister-in-law, nephew & step-niece. After dinner (Chinese Food, as per my in-laws request), the fortune cookies were brought. Sean gets his, pulls out his fortune and reads “You will be your best hockey player”… (Of course it really didn’t read that, but that’s what he wanted it to say). Can you tell my child is hockey obsessed? That’s my boy!
