Whew - what a busy weekend!! Friday Amanda and I went to get our hair done at My Cousin Pam's. I don't have a picture of us, I'll try to get that tomorrow. We left early and had time to stop and take pictures of some deer that we saw. I had to use all of my 10x zoom to catch these camera-shy creatures!
Check out this great knitting bag that I bought at Delirium in Waterloo (it's also where I get my hair colour - take a guess). It's fantastic - a nice medium size, washable and reversible. There is a lined, zipped side pocket (for whatever side you have facing out) and a cute little matching change purse. For $33.99 (Cdn) I am very impressed with the quality. And the uniqueness - priceless!! Which Angry Little Girl are you?
I reworked the top of the Naturally Easy Raglan and am satisfied with the results. It is designed to be a men's small. I like the body length on Kyle (though Kyle thought that it was some sort of belly sweater) but the sleeves are just a titch short. I think that he may be growing into more of a medium. I am going to take the sweater into The Needle Emporium on Saturday and will confer with Julie about any little tweaks that we might work in for the final pattern, but all in all I'm much happier with it than I was when I last posted.
This picture belongs in the "Do Not Try This At Home" file. I took it at Hwy 7 & Weston Road in Woodbridge. He is from A Channel, so maybe that makes him a playing-too-close-to-traffic professional ... I don't know. Maybe if A Channel shows how busy it is that close to the road people will use the sidewalks - the middle of the sidewalk even. Even Amanda thought that he was a little crazy.
