A Day In My Life

My little guy is starting preschool next month. Just one morning a week for 2 hours. It will be the first time he has ever been in anyone's care other than family.
It is a VERY big deal for me . . . I mean him.
In some ways I am really looking forward to it and am excited about the next phase of his life. And in some ways I would like to hold on to my little guy and not let him grow up.

He needs a backpack and Kohl's is having big sales plus I got a coupon in the mail. So, this morning we picked out a really cool Cars backpack. Both Lightening McQueen and Mater are on it. Does it get any better than that??? Not when you are a car & truck obsessed little boy!

All of this came out of the garden today. That's a baby eggplant, a green pepper, and several tomatoes. That yellow tomato is actually a variety of a gold tomato. The garden is doing really well and I am very proud of my green thumb!

And tonight is my weekly Knit Knite where I'll continue working on my Citron. I'm almost done with section 4! I love this pattern and the yarn. I am thinking that some of my sock yarn may turn into a Citron or three.

FO: Fetchings

I have loved the Fetchings pattern from Knitty for a very long time. But, for whatever unknown reason it has taken me until this summer to actually make a pair. They are a fun and quick knit. They would make a great gift and are a wonderful way to honor that one skein in your stash that you aren't sure what to do with. This is also a great pattern for mastering new techniques: DPNs, Magic Loop, cables. By the way, I just love the shade of green of this yarn. It is kind of a cross between a kelly green and a lime green. Very pretty!

Project: My Fetchings Rav link
Needle: size 5 addi turbo magic loop
Yarn: a brand-less cone of Italian merino wool I picked up at School Products in NYC
Verdict: LOVE THEM!!!
