Big Update:

The View was great...the show was nice, but it was so great just to spend the day mom, sis, and me.

School (my job) is going well. "Reese" will most likely fail this year. He's doing almost no work in language arts. There's nothing more we can do. We offer to stay after school, we offer to be in early (and are every day). You can lead a horse to water, I guess. I hope he pulls thought. It's just that retention is district policy and if one doesn't pass one stays back. I don't like it.

School (college) is slow going. I feel like the semester will never end. It seems liek my private life keeps getting in the way of me having time to do my assignments, but when I put my personal life aside things get crazy, my apartment gets dirty.




Now for knitting...
So my co worker and my friend are both pregnant...my co worker is having a girl in late June, and my friend a boy about two weeks late if all goes as planned for both. For the girl - Emma...
I've already made a cropped baby sweater (I think it's Debbie Bliss) out of this new cotton by Lions Brand.



I still need to add trim - maybe a crochet lace. I seamed the arms with I-cord.



I still want to make her a reversable blanket, so either garter or (hopefully) a reversible braid cable stitch.

For the boy who doesn't officially have a name yet. I used Caron Supper Soft to make a (I believe Debbie Bliss) striped hoodie. The sleeves aren't done, but i'm well on my way.



I'm almost done with a baby surprise out of that same cotton from Lions Brand.






I want these duckie buttons from this new store Yarn Diva. Very nice people! I still love Stix though:)

I am also finishing a blanket.



I got the idea from Stick-Legged Girl's Cotton Ease Baby Blanket. I did garter instead of her stockinet and casted on 75 instead of her 29. No, I have not finished mine yet, but on the baby front, no dice for me yet, so I have time. My friend's blanket is made out of Bernat Baby Coordinates in mint.



Moving away from babies. I started this Feather and Fan Wrap a while back out of Wool in the Woods Bobcat as a prototype for one I want to make my mother.



I'm trying to make a top down lace cardigan...



We'll see.








Finally...some cute animals.
Mr. Grimm Witch and I went to the Bronx Zoo this past week while he was on vacation. We had such a great day.
