Thank you so much for your kind thoughts about Picasso. He was a tiny guy with a big heart. We’re going to miss him.
In the life goes on category, N went trick or treating Halloween evening. Here he is in his ninja pose standing in my mother’s kitchen. (Notice how clean and well decorated it is. All her dishes match too. I do not understand this way of living.) N had a great time trick or treating with his best buddy J. They chased J’s little sister from house to house. She was on a mission. N slept great that night.
But this is what you’re here for. Look grass with frost! The snow has melted for the most part. The first sleeve is in progress. This is Cassidy knit in Ella Rae classic in color 133 brick. I am still holding my breath and waiting for something bad to happen. This sweater is knitting up so easily. At some point I’m bound to discover that I knit the wrong size or that m*ths have eaten the back. I have never had a sweater progress so well. I’m loving it.
In the something good has to happen after all that bad category, Beth and Pearl are arriving on Friday. I have been beside myself with excitement for weeks. There is still a lot of prep work like grocery shopping and house cleaning but knowing they’ll be here in 2 short days will make all that go quickly. We have plans for yarn shopping and letterboxing and eating seafood until we pop. I might not post for a few days while they’re here but I’ll tell you all about our shenanigans at some point.
