Cable Pocket Shawl

So I blocked my cable pocket shawl today, and I do think it looks better. Of course, now my house smells like a wet dog. Note to self, don’t wear shawl in the rain.
On a lighter note, I asked L to let the dog out, and in typical 4 year old fashion she was taking her time. Thinking this was a teachable moment, I reminded her that Chloe going outside was her time to go the bathroom and how would L feel if someone wouldn’t let her go the bathroom when she needed to. In her best 4 going on 14 year old voice she answered, “Mom. I’m not a dog.” Ah. So much for the empathy training today.

J, on the other hand, is running around playing Rainbow Smurf fairy, sporting one of my very first attempts at a 2×2 rib hat. Amusingly enough, I thought I was making an adult hat at the time.

Hair today, Gone Tomorrow

I finally came up with a slightly clever title to my blog. I do mostly knit English (throwing), but I did teach myself how to knit continental (picking) just recently. My tension is way off though and since most of my knitting right now is for other people, I think I’ll stick with throwing so it looks nice.

My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:
Her Most Noble Lady Nicole the Toothsome of Lower Beanthrop in the Hedge
Get your Peculiar Aristocratic Title

Not knitting, but I thought it was funny.

Also not knitting, but I’ve sort of given up on my yahoo blog because it’s just not very user friendly. If you want to add more than one picture, you have to understand html, and frankly, I’m just not that versed.

Got the kids haircuts today, a real haircut for J and a trim for L. I just get a kick out of what a big boy J’s getting to be. His stylin’ ‘do also makes him look less baby like, I think. And of course he’s running around with a Santa hat over his eyes now. Where’s the camera?
