I'm turning into a really bad blogger. Mostly because I blog so infrequently, and when I do blog I don't even have photos.
Case in point: Yesterday I had a bunch of friends over for an afternoon Stitch'n'Bitch. It was a fun luxury for me to have a weekday afternoon to play with friends; many of whom have flexible jobs so they can do this when they want, a few like me who have school holidays and some who decided to play hooky (hee hee). We ate goodies like Elizabeth's scones with Jacquie's hot chocolate, compared fibers, watched Denny spin pretty things, witnessed Keri's (yes, that Keri) seaming gone wrong and had a nice knitty afternoon. Amy had some cool tools, another Keri had nice yarn, Kim showed off her new gorgeous hand dyed, handspun scarf, Petra is getting the knitting bug and lovely thirteen year old Allison kept my kids busy playing.
I made good progress on my second Roam sleeve and didn't take a single f-ing picture.
So here are some substitutes:
Roam sleeves. I love the colour so much I immediately casted on for the back. I was planning on getting back to the Earth Stripe Wrap, but I'm liking this more.
Grey Mist. 6 long rounds until I split the body and sleeves. Yum.
And my plan for the children if they don't get along.
A two-week holiday may be too long for them. I'm trying to be a good parent and cut back on the tv and PS2, but right now, I suspect that's all that will keep them from bickering. They got a bunch of toys for Christmas but don't want to play with any of them. All my suggestions to "I'm bored" are met with resistance. Maybe I can convince them to play outside, or lock them in a closet.
Hallelujah, they went outside. There is no yelling. Back to Roam.
