Life has been crazy. With the end of the school year approaching, it seems they are trying to pack everything in…field trips, bake sales, plays and assorted other assemblies. Between that and work, there is little time for blogging or knitting. I worked on my Lamb’s Pride baby sweater using the Green Mountain Spinnery pattern for Rosemary’s Little Sweater. The Mountain Mohair one seems a bit tight in the neck. I cast off loosely with a larger needle but it just seems too close. It will be ripped. The neck. Just the neck!
We went to a BBQ at a friend’s house on Sunday. This was a mom from Owen’s program. And they invited another family from the program. Their kids are much higher functioning but the 3 year old, who has a huge crush on Gracie, says "Owen is fun". That bit of streaking Owen did during the grown up portion of dinner sure was fun! Never a dull moment I tell you.
Sadly, one of the gerbils died yesterday. My mom thinks the other one sat on it and suffocated her. I don’t know. We weren’t very attached to either Luna or Fluffy as they aren’t friendly like Sirius Black, our beloved hamster, who passed away last year. The remaining sister does seem a bit lonely…this morning she was sleeping in the spot where I found her sister. They thumped and squeaked a lot, so they were obviously close.
Pictures tomorrow…maybe…inbetween baking and assorted other household fun. But a picture of Scooby–looking mighty cutie.
