Thanks for all of the nice compliments on my shawl. As for the faceless picture…well, there wasn’t much to smile about. Kevin got home late so we had our "photo shoot" when we got home–around midnight–after his mom left. However, there were more pressing matters! The toilet had overflowed. I had seen Owen drop a little toy fish in the toilet on Friday but I "fished" it out. I guess he got something else in there. Kevin and I plunged to no avail. Kevin snaked with no success. A little help from Google and I found you could shop vac the toilet. Kevin did so on Sunday and, it seems, Owen flushed a little Fisher Price dog and a bar of soap. Never a dull moment. Plus I have some wicked split ends. I had no idea my hair looked so icky. I need a trim desperately. When will it be long enough to donate to Locks of Love??
I am working on St. Brigid today. I definately feel out of the loop and not too motivated. I am still working on Gracie’s poncho and need to start some holiday knitting. The pressure…Here is what I bought at the shop on Saturday. The cream colored yarn is for Kevin’s nephew/godson and the dark blue is for the O-man. Ugh, Owen has chapped lips. This is a first and he will not let us put chapstick on. I thought I had him outsmarted by putting it on me and giving him a balmy kiss but he will not let me kiss him anymore. Smart little bugger.
Last, I am working on some fingerless mittens. Granny and I are each knitting one for the shop with the Debbie Bliss Soho. Granny and I are both running short on yarn.
