Finishing Touches... Friday Surprises
The knitting on the felted tote is almost complete, thanks to another evening with Grey's Anatomy. I've gotten to the handles and now have only 8 rows until cast-off. Then I can sew up the bottom and toss it into the wash for felting! Maybe I'll finish it tonight, unless I get a better offer.
Baby kimono is blocked and dried. I found adorable ribbon for the ties; sort of a canvas ribbon that says "All Boy" over and over in a rustic red. This weekend I will sew up the sides of that little sweater and attach the ties. This is a good thing, since the staff here at school is throwing a little baby shower for the recipient on November 10. The notice was in my mailbox this morning.
Sometimes Fridays bring pleasant surprises, besides being Friday. Mayhem and Absent-Minded Professer were exceptionally cooperative this morning. They were dressed, teeth brushed and ready to leave before we had to go! We left the house and were greeted by a dusting of *snow* on the ground. I love *snow* To top it all off, I managed to arrive at school on time, not rushed (thanks Kids!), and was greeted by Buddy B bearing a grande Starbucks coffee with my name on it. What a friend!
