My Own Fault

It is really my own fault. Writing a blog entry with "knitting miracle" in the heading incurred the wrath of the Knitting Goddess. This is what I’ve been dealing with this weekend.

This,Turned into this.

Iain (Boy Wonder) and Checkers (the cat) further exasperated the whole mess. This is as close as I got to knitting all weekend. Sigh. The skein was tangled when I bought it (I asked to have it wound into a pretty yarn cake but it was not cooperating. Naturally, it was the best matching skein!).

On a happy note (I like ending with a happy note!), the family managed to get out into the gorgeous sunshine and garden this weekend. How can this not make you smile?

How about this?

Iain Daniel tasted his first dirt yesterday. A neighbour cautioned me not to introduce him to the worm I found hidden underneath the leaves. Proabably wise…

And, I haven’t shown one of these in awhile. Here we are in our kitchen yesterday.

PS I have finally put myself on the waiting list for Ravelry. It took me awhile to get on the blogging band wagon and it is one of the best things I’ve ever been involved with. Now I’m excited to see how Ravelry pans out.

WOW that some tangley stuff! lol

Great pictures and congrats on the dirt tasting. =) I was told that lots of kids are missing certain enzymes b/c they never go outside and play, which means they never tasted a mud pie or scraped up a cup of soil in the mouth when they fell off the swing. sad (twisted as it sounds)

Love the family shot =)

Yarn - So frustrating
Iain - So adorable
Ravelry - so knit-life altering

Sounds like a great weekend all in all. : )
