My lovely Slouchy Crochet Cardigan has officially been placed on hold. Not time out, as many of my projects seem to be placed when they are naughty, just on hold. The big news is there are three baby blankets that need to be made, and I might add they need to get done quickly. Each baby is cooking at over the 20 week mark and frankly I am afraid they are all coming at the same time.
I asked my husband for a gift certificate to my favorite yarn store for Christmas because I knew these blankets had to be made. And this week when faced with the decision to either drive and hour to go see two children getting over fevers and throw-ups, or driving a half an hour to the yarn store to pick out baby blanket yarn, guess which option I picked. These are going to be simple crochet ripples, I've made many before. There is one problem, I got these yarns out of the bag to take some photos and realized I was missing a skein of light grey. Knowing I paid for ten skeins I called the store and they put one aside for me. I hope to pick it up this week along with yarn for blanket number three. I just found out it will be a girl so I can get that yarn ready to go. That's one boy blanket and two girls. There is one big issue I am going to have and that is time. When am I going to find the time to make them? I better get moving.
Here is a photo of Little Buddy doing his homework yesterday afternoon. He had three pages of math and had to write a story, boy did it take a long time. The story was about whether you would like to travel on a plane or a train. He picked a train. This was one of his sentences, "I have ridden on a train at Tampa International Airport in Tampa Florida." Some of the spelling was questionable, but still the sentence made me smile. He rode on the monorail to get from the main portion of the airport to the planes. He is a funny little one.
This is Coach John and Little Buddy at soccer today. I really love this man. He is so kind and funny. He lets Little Buddy come right up to him with his walker and then Coach John falls down on the ground like he is being run over. Then Little Buddy falls over and they both roll around the ground laughing and laughing. He spends a lot of time with Little Buddy and really seems to enjoy him. Let's just say not a lot of soccer skills were learned today, but it was beautiful out and Little B had a great time, that is all that matters.
There can't be a post without a photo of these two, Crazy 1 and Crazy 2.
Have a lovely weekend my friends.
