I had quite a knitting weekend. We had to go to the big city for some shopping. The mall, and any other stores, besides the grocery store, are almost 40 miles off. I got to knit in the car! Yay! MIL drove, and the six of us had a fun time. Two of the kids needed new shoes. How do they grow so fast?
Lucky MM, when school started he wanted slip ons that have the band the Sex Pistols on them. His Granny likes to help out and buy some school stuff. Since shoes are so expensive, we're happy to let her! She wouldn't buy the ones he wanted, because they said sex on them. LOL. Well, they were on sale, and the only pair they had left were his size, so I bought them. (Relax, everybody, it's a band!)
I am afraid he's probably going through another growth spurt, though, because he's been even more hungry than usual. That's pretty hungry!
Whenever he does that, he shoots up a half of foot, or so!
I should rename this blog Arleta's Little Projects. It seems like everything I've been knitting is small. Baby Genius Cloths, Soap Socks, Baby hats. I have two pair of socks on the needles that I have the urge to work on, too.
I love the little baby hat. It is so cute! I don't know if I'm putting the ears on it. Lazy me! I think little kitty-cat ears would be really cute. I might even knit a bigger one. It's a fun pattern. The pictures show it on one of LD's baby dolls.
I love the way the cotton is zig-zagging and pooling on the baby burp cloths. I want to make a couple more of them. I have some yellow and blue, so that would make the purple pinwheel blankie, a mint green hat, a pink hat, and one pink, one green, one blue, and one yellow Baby Genius Burp Cloths. I love a variety!
The orange dishcloth, and felted soap are for my best-friend's birthday. Now, I just have to come up with a really cute way to wrap them. I'm going to take her out to dinner sometime next week. We're going to go to a place where we worked when we were teenagers. It has been sold, and I think it'll be fun to see all of the changes it has gone through since then. Hopefully, this won't be the day she checks my blog. Trust me, the way things usually go for me this will be that day!
Well, that was what I did this weekend. Now, I have to go do all of the laundry, and dishes that I ignored. Then, (or maybe instead ~ LOL) I'm going to go knit!
Hope you had a knit-filled weekend, too!
