To all of you who posted your sympathies about the loss of the Dino Hat: I have good news!!! The hat has been FOUND! Apparently it was lurking beneath Emilie's pencil case at school the whole time. She stepped off the bus yesterday afternoon wearing it with a big grin on her face. Yay! I guess I should have known that, if they can find a Selacamp in Madagascar, finding a hat in Rosemere was also possible, heh.
So! My father and I are having a D&D weekend. No, that most emphatically does NOT stand for Dungeons and Dragons, or Drunk & Disorderly. It stands for Dad & Daughter, and it's something we've never done. We've never spent an entire weekend together, just us, alone, in 33 years of knowing each other.
We're meeting somewhere in the middle of our respective lives, and we're going to hang out, laugh, and see where our 2 days take us. I'm looking forward to the quiet, the slower pace, and the SLEEPING! Cannot WAIT for that part, grin.
Naturally, I'm wondering what to pack in terms of knitting. Of course, the obvious choice would be to bring the Honeybee cardigan along. Speaking of which, I think it's high time you got a peek!
The thing is, I've also got a few lingering WIPs that I'd like to get off the needles once and for all. I've never fallen prey to second ANYTHING syndrome, and now I've got not one but TWO single socks looking all forlorn, not to mention the dreaded oven-mitt (aka Citrus Mitten).
All good, sensible choices. And yet... I'm compelled to cast on for something completely new. (I know, you're shocked). This weekend is about enjoying opportunities when they present themselves, so why not say "Screw it" and just knit what I wanna knit? I'm thinking Milkweed, in some lovely Casbah. What do you think?
Happy Knitting Everyone!
