Clearly folks believe that I should share the wealth with Wifey. Alright. But I'm really hoping that the voters for option #3 (replace pants, buy practical clogs and share with Wifey) pull off a win in the end. I'd really like new clogs ...
Crafty crafty weekend. Hooray. First of all, I spent some serious QT with Roo this morning while the kids ran around, trashed her house, made a huge pile of fleece and jumped from the bottom step onto the pile. They laughed hysterically for about an hour and we happily knit on the couch. Meanwhile ... her hubby, a most excellent kind-hearted, music-playing, quilt-making, army guy (I know, I know ... he defies all stereotypes, which is a big part of why I adore him), asked me to teach him to knit. Roo scrounged up some fat needles and some pumpkin Wool Ease, and I taught him to knit!! We started out with English, but after about 10 rows, I realized that I should teach him Continental. He did really well. Was a total natural. By the way John, if you run into trouble, this is a great source for knitting videos: Knitting Help.
My big goal for the weekend is to wave my wand over this random stuff:
and turn it into Little Man's costume (sans crown):
Wish me luck!
