Yarn: Lion Brand Heartland
I wanted to knit in the car on a day trip. So I have to finish knitting the pinwheel sweater...almost done (I hope it still fits Eloise when I'm finally finished!) and that grey and wasabi cardi with the horses for her, but both of those are out for the car. The pinwheel isn't ideal b/c I've had to quarantine that (a mouse got into the house and walked across it so I'm not into snuggling and carrying it around until its been finished, washed, and de-Mickey-fied.). The color work in the cardi makes it madness to do without concentration, so that left me with a serious gap in my two hour car trip.
I started an adult sock. I'm using Step-by-Step Cheat Sheet for Socks by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. The yarn is some Ranco multi by Araucania. And I got the strip of leaf lace pattern from the pattern encyclopedia at the knitting fool.
We went to Camden Adventure Aquarium and Eloise had a black as usual. Her favorite ocean animal has to be the shark. She has four different stuffed ones, one of which she carried around the aquarium, pressing again the glass to try to feed him the fish inside.:)
No knitting today...I took out my spinning after a long while. I started spinning with the help of a friend last summer. This is one of the projects I have in my spinning bag.
So I'm on spring break this week. So far everyone has been sick. Eloise is feeling better today, so I'm planning on taking her out.
I've been continuing work on the Pinwheel Sweater for Eloise out of tonal Berroco Ultra Alpaca.
and i think for good...for no other reason than I used this blog today to look up something we'd gone through a few years back...like I was looking in a diary...so that's what I think I'll do...
