Some Good, Some Bad
So, today was not fun for the first...eight hours or so. Heather woke up at 4am complaining of her ears hurting. *sigh* She snuggled in bed with me, rolling around and crying at random. Until the boys woke up at around 8:30. I grabbed them, fed them, and called the doctor. We got her an appointment for 11. Finished feeding the boys, grabbed myself a poptart, and Heather woke up. At this point it was now 10, so I rushed to dress everyone, gave Heather my poptart and milk (I wonder why I'm always hungry), and checked the diaper bag. 10:30, rush out the door to discover...I have lost my keys!! After hunting throughout the house thoroughly while telling Heather to find the keys, I find them in my bedroom on the floor, by the nightstand. Oops. Back out to the car.
Oh, did I mention my monthly visitor arrived this morning too? Yep. So, Heather has an ear infection, Kyran has bug bites, I have cramps and Nolan...well Nolan is just happy. Tell you what, I'm making pie tonight!
Then, I come home. A package in the mailbox! Hurrah! Who was it from? I'm expecting several. It's from Pamela over at Flint Knits! She was destashing after her car decided to try to ruin her summer. Six balls of Rowan Yorkshire Tweed Aran for $32? Oh yeah, I coud live with that. It will make a gorgeous sweater too! I'm thinking this, maybe with a cable panel? Yum. Yarn makes everything better. She also sent me a cute notepad, some chocolate (which I assure you is actually no longer in that cute little box), a book for the kids, and tea.
Also, I remembered my handspun. I finally got (I think) sock-able yarn! It's about 14wpi, that's like a sport or DK weight right?? Eh, it looks good to me. There is 330yds, which is plenty to make socks. Woot! Carded up some raw wool that I'd dyed, it didn't come out at ALL like I planned. Oh well. Still will be fun.
Oh, and the best thing (major ego boost), check this out
! Someone made the booties using MY directions! Squeeeee!
