Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn



The bad thing about working on only one knitting project is that it makes for boring blogging.  Sorry!!!

Seven things about this photo:

1.  The most obvious:  the back and sleeves of the My Hero sweater are finished.

2.  The sun is shining.

3. My assistant is always around to help.

4. Less obvious: my house is so messy, I had to find a spot to photograph this project.

5.  And…..drum roll!!!  It’s totally quiet in my house right now.  I’m sure that will change soon!

Edited later!  Another obvious thing.  I evidently can’t add.  I wrote at the top “seven things”.  There are only five things.  Duh!

I just thought you’d like to see a close-up of that cute nose cable.

We had some fun with kid 3 last night.  He’s getting snowboarding stuff for Christmas.  The only problem was getting boots that fit.  So this is what we did.

I ordered 3 pairs of boots from zappos.  (Can I even tell you how much I love zappos?  Free shipping.  Free returns.  I live 100 miles from good shopping.)  We blindfolded the kid and tried the boots on him.

He chose these with his blindfold on.  Bwaaaa!!!!  Haaaaaa!

He never reads the blog, but just in case, Dude!  I’m just kidding!

Time to get this day in gear.  I don’t want the health department to shut down this house!

  1. You’ll have to show him this post after Christmas! What a riot, I laughed out loud when I saw the boots!

  2. ….love the colours on the sweater….:)

  3. But I really love the boots!

  4. You should definitely give him those boots.

  5. That is going to be a gorgeous sweater!

  6. Love your sweater. Nice Christmas decorations. My house is a blinking disaster. My living room is full of kitchen cupboards but the contractor hasn’t shown up to install them. So I haven’t been able decorate much.
