Now, I realize I said that knitting and
To wit: the day of Émilie's surgery. I don't think I would have gotten through it without my knitting! I knew I needed something mindless, and a plain, no frills sock seemed like a good bet.
No sooner had I decided to knit a sock than this Zen Yarn Garden Duets Squooshy sock yarn I've had in the stash for... heck, I don't know HOW long, practically leapt out of
one of the sock yarn drawer and into my knitting bag. I don't know why, the colours just made me happy. And the best part?
If all goes according to plan (please, please, PLEASE don't smite me down, Knitting Fates!), I should have enough yarn to make matching Mother/Daughter socks :)
Speaking of Émilie, she's been crafting as well! Phil bought her some pastels and other drawing supplies earlier this week, and she's been drawing up a storm! We had fun drawing and colouring together yesterday afternoon, even though (I hate to say it), I'm getting a wee bit tired of her "horses and unicorns" phase. Hoping she moves on to another animal soon (says the woman who obsessed over Black Beauty for 5 years straight...).
Hmmm.... I was going to talk about a shopping trip Kate-the-Enabler, Émilie and I took yesterday, but I think I'll save that for tomorrow! Suffice it to say: I'm back!
Happy Knitting, Everyone!
