Knitting Updates

I finished my little guy's hat. It turned out perfect for him, if I do say so myself! I gave it to him this morning and a) he remembered asking for it and helping me buy the yarn - which I admit I was a bit nervous he wouldn't LOL! and b) he LOVED it! Yeah!!


And seriously, isn't he just so amazingly cute?! He is extra cute because he knows how to cause lots of trouble and it helps balance him! I say it semi-jokingly, but he has tested me as a parent in more ways than I think my two girls have combined. But, he has the best heart and is so sweet most of the time that it balances the rough moments. I am so glad he is a part of our family. He was most certainly a surprise and a shock - and we discovered he would be coming on April Fool's Day. It seems fitting now. He is full of energy and I believe he is part tigger with all the bouncing he does! But he is adorable and sweet and he brings energy to this family that the rest of us do not have. And I love him, and was so glad to make him this (bright) red hat, and I think the brightness of it just completely fits him!!

So, I finished it quickly because the first clue for mystery stole 4 came out today (there is still time to join if you want to!) I got it extremely early this am, and reknit the first few rows 3 times before getting right!! Ugh. But now I'm half way through the first clue and it is looking lovely so far.



I have never beaded or done lace before. The lace part isn't hard - but you have to pay attention. I have learned that I am painfully slow at adding beads and that is what I struggle with the most. It is looking lovely though. It just stinks that we have to wait another week to get the next clue. I'd be ready to move on now. But I suppose for now, I will buy a second set of needles to begin the other side!

That's all from here. Work this weekend and next week we start awana, soccer, more work and other activities. And I told my oldest we wouldn't start school until after halloween (it just makes more sense for our family) but I changed my mind and we will be starting now. We are going to study the election and all the presidents as well as an 8 year old can! I have decided to try out lapbooks with this - something we've never done before, but I bought file folders the other day so I hope it works!! =)
