Wii bowled, wii golfed, wii played horseshoes, and....wii never left our living room! It was a fun night playing with our new toy - the Wii Nintendo - with our friends Layne & Tim. I made a crockpot stew, and Layne brought the salad, so no one had to take time out to cook. It was a perfect way to end vacation week. (Do you notice the bowler on the right - that's right, no legs! What's up with that?
I need a bit more practice on my golf swing!
And it looks like we may get an extended vacation if the weatherman has his way. 5-9 more inches of heavy, blowing snow expected for late tonight into tomorrow morning.
It will either be a day off, or a very scary drive into work!
My SIL wrote that when she was in NYC recently she saw a vendor selling knit hats with earflaps and braids. She wanted to stop and get one to wear when she was out shoveling snow, but was in a hurry at the time, and didn't stop. Her birthday is next week, and I didn't have time to knit one, but I did come up with a crochet version of what I think she was describing. This took less than two hours to crochet and I will be able to get it in the mail to her in time for her birthday. It's a modified version of the Kirsten Hat. I'm hoping she won't have to shovel any more snow this year (she's in NJ), but just in case......
I also CO for another Old Shale Smoke Ring using the Plymouth Happy Feet that I received from BJ in my prize package. I love this yarn! And I love the Knitpicks Knitting Chart Keeper. This is a really easy pattern to do - but I still have to remember which line of the 4 line pattern I'm on (I'm easily distracted!) I think with this chart keeper I could actually do a more complicated lace pattern. I'm also using my Knitpicks Harmony Options, which I love. This sounds like an add for Knitpicks - hmmm - maybe they will give me some free yarn??
