My Kind of Saturday

Yesterday we spent the day with my brother, sister-in-law, and little guy.  It was a perfect Saturday.


Can you believe how big this kid is?  He'll be six next month!  And the way he swings that out!




Thanks for all the suggestions for my sister-in-law's next knitting project.  I love that Dianne suggested some of my patterns....duh! I don't know why I didn't think of that.  But ultimately, she went with the Honey Cowl and I brought her some Plucky Knitter yarn for it.


I finished my Sleepy Hollow socks (btw, I need a name for those....any suggestions?  Don't really want to call them sleepy hollow), so I worked a bit on my easy sock.  The heel is ready to be turned.



Bailey and Puddles had a great day in 'The Land of the Big Backyard,' as Pa calls it.  Seriously, Puddy was out there all day.



My sister-in-law made us a delicious corned beef and cabbage dinner. It was delish! As well as the key lime pie, sticking with the green theme :)


Shadow has been feeling better, but I think the doggies may have worn her out a bit by the end of the day.

Today is a day for catching up around the house, some designing, watching a ND ladies basketball win, and hopefully finishing House of Cards (thanks for the rec Disco! Very addicting!). And it is the last day to enter the Sock Yarn Shawls giveaway.  This time next week, be sure to take advantage of our annual Irish Girlie Knits Buy One, Get One free pattern sale.  More details later this week!

Hope you guys all had a great weekend!

Happy Knitting!

What a wonderful Saturday. Hmmm - name for Sleepy Hollow - I'll have to get back to you on that. g

Sounds like a fabulous weekend. We're just doing more unpacking, discovering a hoard of ants in Little Man's room (thanks to him stashing a couple pieces of dog food), and driving to exotic places like Harbor Freight in Newark and Ikea in Palo Alto. Oh, and assembling furniture from Ikea. Entertaining, yeah?

Isn't House of Cards the best?! I finished it in like a week! So glad SIL went with the Honey Cowl. I think Cotty should be next. Be fearless ;0)
Glad you had a great weekend xoxo

Looks like lots of fun. That little guy is growing up. I'm also amazed at the green lawn. It's snowing in Nebraska today. Good luck to the new knitter.
