On the knitting front...it's a bit slow. Still working on Lady Eleanor and casted on a pair of Horcrux Socks. Knit a Captain Underpants for Jacob and so far he has a body and one arm. I should really finish that so I'll have something for FO Friday.
Now for a Secret Pal 10 Contest. We are to write about our favorite knitting project and then our least favorite knitting project and answer the question "WHY did I make that?"
OK For my favorite...oh this is hard because most of the things I end up finishing I end up loving! All the hard work and enjoyment that went into the project. So....here's my choice.
My Cascading Leaves Socks in Heather's Witchy colorway of Sereknity.
My least favorite knit...well.... most of the stuff I finished I ended up liking because I finished it. But I do have one project that I started and all the knitting is done, but I have to now sew it together and I'm SO not wanting to do it. The pieces of this project are not even in the same places now (and if you know me I know you're not surprised about that!) But it's the Bunny Backpack from the Stitch and Bitch book. It's cute as can be. Done in Red Heart yarn, yeah yeah forgive me, I was a newbie! Here's a pictures of the finished panel with the bunny on it. Maybe one day I'll actually sew it up.
Tuesday Jacob got out of School early so we were lucky enough to get to go out to the Discovery Stop and meet up with Heather, Gina and Jackie and their adorable kiddo's! I swear..the level of cutest was UP in the playroom that day with all our angels! :o) The boys had a great time!
Then yesterday Jacob's cub scouts went to the Currier Downtown Art Museum here in town. They had a special kids project going on that day and the boys got to make Parachutes!! It was fun.
Here I am making sure Jacob's strings are attached well to his basket of his parachute. Nathan is coloring (with a sharpie, he's still green!) his parachute.
Here is Mr. Jake testing his parachute out. Looks like it's a good one!
The lady running the project took us all over to a court yard and dropped the parachutes out the 3rd story window. Jacob and Nathan's did great! Floated right down.
And a special Happy Birthday shout out to Jackie and Mike of the Manchvegas Knitters! We celebrated last night at Famous Dave's. What happens at Famous Dave's...Stays at Famous Dave's. :o) yeah right!
