In honour of the French team (and Julian's love anything bready and anything dairy!) we had profiteroles for desert (they were still kinda frozen in the centre which explains his hilarious expression:
And me, I was rooting for extra time as I was furiously trying to finish my World Cup knitting project before the winner was declared. Needless to say I was thrilled that the match went into overtime ;0) And so here is my mitered square blankie for my Jubilee Bubilee (the embroidery on the border reads: for my little Julian, may all your days be filled with giggles, warmth and whimsy from mommy with love):
I even weaved in all the ends and finished off the underside as neatly as I could. Nice, eh?
So some of you may be thinking, "that's nice, but where are all the nursery rhyme whimsies?" And to you observant folks I say "shhhhh!" ;0)
Let's say I've been a little handicapped with the whole going back to work thing... I still plan on knitting them, but I'll do so on my own time and just add them on during weekend nap times here and there. So there'll be lots of surprises when my lovely awakes. At least, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
And now, finally I get to start something new!!! Yay! Up next is a pinwheel sweater for my neighbour Emily. I got my yarn from elann this week and can't wait to get pinwheeling. I might start it tonight so that I can get gauge issues figured out and get it advanced enough that I am comfortable bringing it on the train tomorrow morning.
Have a good week everybody!
