Knitting, Kids Art and The Other Coast

I've started a new knitting project. I had to put the other one down..I just wasn't into it. And it was hard! My friend Jamie gave me this pattern and I'm really excited about it. It's a summer wrap and will be perfect for the beach this summer. I have another friend who has been helping me with my knitting...and I'm thankful she's patient. I went to her house this morning, with Griffy, and she got me started on this. She has two new kittens..that I'm deathly allergic to..and Griffy kept throwing golf balls at them.  The whole time I was there I kept thinking to myself..Is this worth it? Should I put this down until Griffy is older and I have more time? And then I thought..NO! Besides reading...and blogging..which I've cut way back on..I don't do much for myself...and this is something that I've always wanted to learn...Geesh.

I love all the handmade things the kids bring home from school. I've run out of jewelry and cotton balls and Qtips that most of them hold so now we just put them out on a shelf for all to see. 

Headed to the other coast. 


  1. hahaha - we have a ton of those clay knick knacks too ... and those self portraits are really gorgeous, wow!! I'm glad to hear you're sticking with this new knitting project, the yarn looks pretty so I can't wait to see! and hello? other coast for april break?! did i miss something? can't wait to hear about it, sounds exciting!

    ps- re: BB box - good eye! the ipad was tucked into a total of 4 boxes, each one wrapped differently and nested inside the next ... the second to last one was a BB shirt box - a great decoy for the ipad ;-)

  2. So glad you're knitting. I can't wait to see the finished product!

    The weathers been great in California! A perfect spring. Have a great time.

  3. My knitting experience was fun but my scarf was all crazy...I kept picking up stiches. It was hularious. Enjoy your trip!

  4. ooohhhh...that wrap looks like it's going to be scrumptious. Can't wait to see you wrapped up in it. You'll have to take a picture of it w/a fun hat on like in the pattern. :)

  5. I wish I had kept all my sons' homemade treasures!
