Anyway, this is the first adult sized garment I have attempted. Astrid and I just picked up the yarn at Loopy yesterday. Whadoyathink?
I am currently knitting Astrid's halloween costume, but this project (for me) is next.
Speaking of Astralita. This morning I answered her little call "Mamiyamo...Mamiyamo" (one of her words for mama) I could almost feel the heat radiating from her before I entered her door. Our girl was feverish. I immediately stripped her down, gave her some motrin and pulled her into bed and nestled her between us with no covers on.
We were really looking forward to today, since we were hoping to go to half the Griz game in hopes of seeing Monte, Mo and Rocky. Instead, Dad went to the game while the two of us snuggled under varying layers of blankies in the living room, sucking on orange juice popsicles, sipping ice water, reading books, playing games, watching the Griz game on t.v.
|I gave Astrid a lukewarm bath this afternoon in hopes of bringing her body temp down, but the o.j. popsicles were the only thing that did the trick. Hippy's tail sure got some suck time.|
I got some knitting done when Astrid finally fell asleep...Astrid's costume...... Magical Magenta!
|This is "Green Bean" the newest addition to the puppet family (before/after felting). He's stirring things up around here already.|
I have lots more to catch up on regarding this blog. I have been such a blog-slacker these last couple weeks. I will try to post again tomorrow with lots more photos!
Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me, yippee!
