The Leaf Cravat from Interweave Knits Winter 2002 is finished. I used Esslinger Wolle Marina from my mother’s stashaster. It is 100% cotton. I think I would have preferred a wool/cotton but I like it nonetheless and I really like this design by Teva Durham. Her website is interesting, check it out. Here is a free pattern for Round the Capelet, for those who hook. It uses chunky wool and is done in 8 rounds. I hope Gracie’s teacher likes this. And thank you all for the suggestions for other teacher gifts. I love the idea of a lace bookmark but I bought some novelty scarf yarn too. I would like to try one of those chenille washcloths too.
It was a fairly quiet day. Kevin took Cameron and Owen to the diner for breakfast. So cute. Owen did pretty well too–sat nicely, ate his bagel, stacked jelly containers. I took he and Cameron over to my mom’s to meet Isabella today. Owen is a bit scared of dogs but he did better than I expected. I was working on a Wheaten Terrier rescue yesterday and today but Sugarplum has been adopted. I want a dog.
Oh, Cameron, Gracie and I saw Shrek 2 last night. I was a bit disappointed. Some of it was just a little too mature and inappropriate for my taste–like Pinocchio wearing a woman’s thong. Can someone tell me why? Shrek was such a nice story. I think they tried just a little too hard with this one. I have to admit though, Puss in Boots was adorable, those big saucer kitty cat eyes were so stinkin’ cute.
Have a wonderful weekend. We are off to a BBQ with friends from Owen’s school tomorrow. They live on a stream. I hope Owen stays dry.
