Road Trip

I've been MIA for a couple of days cause I went to visit my mom in Ottawa. Imagine...two whole days kid and hubby free! I almost didn't know what to do with myself. So...I did the LYS tour. I picked up some funky ladder yarn in copper, black and orange, as well as some baby yarn in variegated purples yellows and pinks so that my little knitting man(Shane my 8 year old) could start a baby blanket for his new sister. I'm so proud of him for wanting to take up knitting. He actually joined the knitting club at his school with a few other boys. What brave wonderful kids! Any hoo.. it was a wonderful, and well deseerved break. The clapotis is about half done, and I can't wait to see the finished product. I'll keep everyone posted! Happy Sunday!

That is so cool! I have a co-worker who's son knits... when she told him that I was knitting he asked if he could see my stash! I think that's awesome.

I joined the "Ontario Knitters" ring and was checking out the other members. There are only four of us so far! I enjoyed your blog and will visit again!

I just wanted to let you know that I tried the frozen baby washcloth trick and Claire loves it! She can get it into her mouth on her own and the coldness seems to be making her happy. You have saved both my sanity and my fingers. Many thanks!

Give Shane a really big pat on the back from here in the UK! I taught my youngest son (he's now 12) to knit a couple of years ago when he showed an interest. Now the eldest one would rather eat his own toenail clippings that learn...so sad!
