I'm back!

Actually, I haven't been anywhere. I've been doing the normal every day run, run, run. School, home, store, hubby's basketball games...throw in some knitting here and there, and that's about all.



I have two pairs of socks almost done (both for me). I think the jaywalkers are going to be really close to matching, and I didn't even try. Just luck. I knitted two more fake isle hats. LD chose the blue/tan yarn for herself, and I knitted her up a little hat. Next winter both of us are going to have some thrummed mittens. Carrie will show me how to do it. ;)

Friday, Carrie invited Melanie (our blogless knitter friend) and I over, and we knitted, and ate, and looked at patterns all day while the kids were at school. That was fun.

On the 24th of February, SP turned 18. Wow! 18 years old. I'm ready for people to say "You don't look old enough to have an 18 year old!" More people used to be surprised to see how old my kids were, but now every one's like "Yep, cool." lol So, happy birthday to him! It's a big one!!

We are having a snow day. Again.. This school never calls a snow day. I did get to go back to bed for a while until LD let me know it was time to eat, and wondered if she should wait for me to help her cook eggs and toast. Since she's only 9, yes, I got up and cooked some eggs and toast to dip in them. She does know not to touch the stove without me. She is a pretty good helper in the kitchen, though.

Now she and MM are playing marbles with a big tape circle on the living room floor. At least they are playing, and it's not too loud. Maybe today, I'll get around to checking on my fave bloggers. I haven't really felt like messing around on the computer.

Before I even touch one of those socks, I need to clean the floors in this place! I have to! There, now that I typed it, maybe I'll actually do it. Maybe I should get to it soon, of course, I can't vacuum the carpet with marbles and tape and kids sprawled all over it. Oh well, maybe cold feet matter more. ;) ;) hehe

Have a great day, hope you find tons of time to knit!

Did it work? Did the floors get clean? =) Happy Birthday to your tall (!) son. I bet he's excited!

We've had more snow days this year than I can ever remember, haven't we? Sure makes you want those thrummed mittens! Perhaps a thrumming party next...

Your knitting looks great! Good job, and way to be so productive! Thoroughly shamed, I'll get back to my knitting now...

You know I don't even know what a snow day is, lol. We do have "hurricane" days, though!

At least you've had time to fit in knitting--everything looks great, as usual.

Happy late birthday to SP! No you don't look old enough to have an 18 year old.

I love those hats!

I so love the hats! I must knit one, some, something! An 18 yr old, wtg! It really feels weird when your eldest (even if he is a stepchild) turns 30! I feel younger than 30!!!!
