Remember me? January 30, 2007

Upload_end_of_jan07_011 What a crappy picture.  I finished my "inspired by Norma" Dulaan sweater.  I just need to block the bottom so it lays flat.  I have also finished 4 furry hats for Kate’s hat project.  I used Bernat Boa and ChaCha.  I think I have a couple more in me!  There is  a new sock blocker for the socks I hope to start knitting.  And last, but not least, the baby blanket.  It is coming along.  Unfortunately, I misplaced 2-3 skeins of the yarn and had to buy more.  So much for using some stash.  I can’t wait to block it so it has a bit more drape.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my blogging break and will enjoy it some more.  I Last_of_the_red_scarves have been so–I can’t even say productive (although it’s true)–in my knitting.  I finished up my red scarves and Ricki donated one too.

Nancy hit the nail on the head when she mentioned this time of year for me.  Owen celebrated his 7th birthday on Sunday.  With much glee, he opened his presents–which is always so reinforcing to us.  Many of his friends couldn’t care less about presents.  Of course, he takes his time–wanting to play with each and every thing.  We had family over for bagels and donuts.  And I brought pizza to his class yesterday.  He has been in such a terrific and agreeable mood these days.  He’s still not talking much however, his requesting has taken on a new look.  "I want here ya go.  Thank you. You’re welcome."  It’s really cute. 

Cameron’s "big" speech appt. is this weekend.  It is also the first Saturday of the yarn sale.  So I should work.  Granny has been sweet and is okay if I take off.  It is hard to let go and let Kevin take this one on.  Although, he is less emotional than me and will probably hear things more clearly.  Argh.  I don’t know.  And Sunday is Cameron’s birthday.  He has skipped a party this year and opted for Nintendo Wii.  We don’t typically spend this much money on a birthday present but I imagine Cameron isn’t going to be the only one playing.  And we are still scarred from last year’s party!

I suppose I should get back to my knitting.

    It’s great to see a post from you and it was fun to ‘talk’ to you this morning.

    Good to hear from you. Seems things are settled for the moment? Just take some time to be where you want to be. Love the FOs.

    Weehaaw. What’d I do to inspire the Dulaan sweater? I’m not complaining, mind you…

    Today I was saved by the pulsevante you made me. That room I work on Tuesdays and Thursdays is a freaking refrigerator — or worse, as it has a draft! I can’t do steno with regular wristers — they’re too restricting — but the lovely pulsevante helped a lot!

    Hey lady, good to see you’ve been productive. I’m glad Owen’s been in a good mood, Ian has been too it’s always good to focus on that.

    Good luck on Cam’s appointment. You know I often have to send Rinaldo on things like that, it’s just easier that way sometimes.

    The Wii is a blast! We all love it. Ian especially loves bowling, and Rinaldo and Avery love the boxing of all things;) I usually make Avery wait for his games systems for a year or 2 when the price has gone down a few times but this was well worth it.

    Happy Belated Birthday to both Owen and Cam.
    and Good Luck with the meetings.
    Owen sounds like a great kid.
