The last couple of days have been pretty busy. My mom was down for a visit and we were able to escape, sans baby, to the Eaton Centre to do some shopping and enjoy a lovely lunch. That evening, quanta and I went to a 13-course Chinese dinner to celebrate my sister-in-law’s (i.e. his sister’s) upcoming wedding. And then we spent the night at a friend’s place and had a super lunch with them. It was nice to get out and spend some time with adults. And I went more than 24 hours between changing diapers!
All of this, of course, means I haven’t done much knitting or cross stitch. But, tonight I’m going to plop down in front of the TV for a little while and try to get side 2 and 3 of Casltes in the Air Part 3. Here’s a look at what I’ve done so far on side 2:
And here is the Mill Hill ornament that is almost done:
And, lastly, my latest sock. After a bad yarn-to-pattern sock attempt the other day, I decided it was time to try that Lily of the Valley sock I’ve been talking about for a while. I took it with me last night and was able to get a fair little bit done this morning before everyone else woke up. (One of the bonuses of being a mommy is that internal alarm clock.) Here’s where I am so far, almost done the first repeat of the flowers. I apologize for the poor picture quality, there just isn’t enough light here at night even with a flash.
Tomorrow the classes for the fall Creativ Festival are released. I’m so excited! There is supposed to be a breakfast event with Teresa Wentzler and Jennifer Aikman-Smith (Dragon Dreams), and who knows what else. Believe me, I will be on the phone first thing on the 10th booking my classes.
