I also finished my 3rd knit hat...Granted, it's nowhere near as fancy as Jessie's, but I love it! The color is awesome, the yarn was a dream to knit and the swirls just make me happy. What can I say? I'm a girl with simple needs.
And on the knitted hat front...Kim knit up the cutest fishbowl hat for Tyler for his birthday. It is knit in blue (his favorite color...) and it was even cold enough for him to need to wear it!
Yesterday, Tyler and I did paper torn crafts(it's the teacher in me)...I was thinking beautiful fall day...And he was thinking race cars speeding along their tracks...
Here's his finished product. Maybe it's the proud mommy in me, but I'm pretty sure he has a bright future in art!I went with Jessie and Kim to the Civil War Revisited at Kearney Park last weekend and had a blast (hahaha...get it, cannons, guns, blast? hmmmm, nevermind)!!! The battle was great, the kettle corn was very tasty, but the best part of the whole thing was getting to chat with the spinners and seamstresses about their old old old treadle sewing machines. One lady was there with hers that doesn't use a bobbin, but insead does chain stitching, which was a beautiful finished stitch. I have decided that I could become quite obsessed with spinning and may need to take it up as a hobby...a very expensive, but productive and soothing hobby.
But he seems to be fully recovered; after 3 days off school, he returned yesterday just in time for his school trip to the pumpkin patch. We will be headed off for adventures in Disney Land tonight and I expect that show up on the blog here one of these months...
