How’s that for an original title? My brain is mush today!
First of all, I unpinned a shawl this morning and took it outside.
I’d like to introduce you to Earth Maiden by Ilga Lega. I used two skeins of Blue Heron Rayon Metallic yarn.
Can you see the bits of gold in the yarn? This shawl was knit horizontally, so they were some really long rows!
I started this project in October of 2008, and finally finished it on September 24th. How’s that for a two year plan!!!
Our long weekend was….interesting. This was at William O’Brien State Park. Minnesota has the most amazing park system!
This walkway was right along the St. Croix river and the pine scent was intoxicating! What you don’t see is the cranky family members. Lets just say that there was one kid that was unhappy at all times this weekend. And it wasn’t always the same kid.
I got some knitting time in. Not a lot, but that wasn’t what I was planning to do anyway.
I worked on Seascape. My mom told me I was going to get really sick of knitting this. I’m not yet, but I’m not quite half way either. She may be right! The amazingly soft yarn is keeping me interested.
So today, I’m getting back to stuff:
We finally did some school shopping, so I have some sorting to do. These kids keep growing!!!
I really could use a parenting class!!! Any experts out there that would like to teach?
Dinner is going in the crockpot in a few minutes.
Dreamboy is now the tallest member of our family. He’s 6 feet tall!!!
The Genius managed to do something that neither of her parents ever bothered to do. She made the deans list!!!
My spinning lesson is tomorrow!
Ms. In Charge has her last volleyball game tomorrow.
Frankie was cranky for an entire day of our trip. He’s never cranky!
Superblonde has both parents on her least favorite list.
My Hero was happy to go back to work this morning!
Maybe I should change my blog name from Passing Down Crazy to Passing Down Peaceful.
