Since I did a WTF Wednesday post yesterday, and therefore missed my opportunity for a Wednesday Night Bullet Post, I thought I'd get real creative today and do a Thursday's Thoughts post. This way I get to do my WNBP on Thursday and not look like I'm late; pretty sneaky, eh? So, let's get on with it, shall we.
~~Don't you just love it when one of your blog friends is able to come spend some time with you in real life? I know I do. I was lucky enough to have that happen on Tuesday night. Danielle and her husband are up in my neck of the woods on vacation this week (just 2 towns away). She came to Chicks with Sticks at the Yarn Sellar and I'm so glad that she did. It was a very nice visit. I think she had a good time too; I certainly hope she did anyway.
She looks happy, doesn't she?
~~Have you seen the new Knitty yet? There are a few items that will be landing in my queue. Waves of Grain is so pretty, and I think that Abby would be a perfect use of some handspun. I also love the OpArt baby blanket; it's so unusual. There are some nice sock patterns too, but since I can't seem to find my sock mojo, I'm not even going to bother kidding myself about them.
~~Speaking of socks, Clover's socks are all either too small for her or they fall off her feet. I would like to make some socks for her (that might be just what I need to get my sock mojo back). Does anyone know of a good tried and true sock pattern for toddlers that will stay on the feet?
~~Hubby started on second shift this week. It feels weirder (is that a word) than I thought it would to come home from work when he's not there. I don't see him again until I wake up in the morning. I do believe I kind of miss him ;-) At least I live close enough that I go home at lunch time and see him for a bit then. He'll be working second shift for the rest of the month and then it's back to days for a couple of weeks. After that, I think it's on to the graveyard shift - YUCK! At least it's work, right?
~~I really thought I'd have an FO for you today; I only have the sleeves left to knit on Clover's sweater. I planned to do that last night, but ended up spending the evening watching her instead of knitting her sweater. Don't feel sorry for me; time spent playing with and snuggling with the happiest baby in the world is the best time ever. I wouldn't pass it up for anything!
~~I thought I was going to knit a bit while she played with her toys, but she is really into watching me knit and wanted to join in. I gave her some yarn to play with (she had taken it the night before to play with), but she wanted needles too. I'm not sure, but I think she may be a teeny bit too young for the needles.
~~Well, that's all the randomness I have for today. Tune in tomorrow for Friday with Clover :-)
