Today I also went shopping for birthday presents for the children of our friends in Atlanta who we will be visiting soon, and I searched through job listings, went grocery shopping, went to Little Man's open house, and did some laundry. Hubby has been away since Monday morning so in the evenings after Little Man goes down for the night I have watched "chick" movies and worked on different projects. I finished the base of a hat I designed. I still have to make the appliques, but this hat is already special because it is the first hat I used Magic Loop to work the decreases.
I also managed to finish the Hemlock Ring throw that I was doing as my Charlotte Purls KAL project. I learned so many things while working on this project, and while I didn't plan on making it now, I'm glad I decided to jump in and knit it up along with my fellow Purls.
After finishing the Hemlock Ring yesterday, I cast on for this project, the Eyelet Dress by Debbie Bliss. It's another project on my quest to finish all the projects in her Baby Knits for Beginners book. The fine yarn and small needles will make this project take longer than most of the projects I have worked on recently, so I hope I have the patience to stick with it. I hope it will be worth it.
And of course I'm spending time with Little Man. We made pizza together, chased each other around the yard, played in his playhouse, and watched some movies. I know he is looking forward to his Daddy coming home tomorrow, but I think he had a good time with me over the last few days.
