| I would have posted this last night but I went to bed too late and was too tired. Just pretend you are reading this last night. If it helps, you can go put your jammies back on, brush your teeth, take out your contact lenses, then come back.
Yesterday we went to my friend Maia's house for a mini-playgroup. I know you can't tell by these photos but there were other babies there! I think we were about 7 or 8 moms, plus 1 extra baby (Maia has twin boys).
Jakob had a blast pulling her foam alphabet mat apart. I MUST get him one of these, it entertained him for so long!
He would pull off a square and then separate the letter from the background. Of course, eating them was fun too! I also want to get that pig she has- when you turn it on, one ear flicks and the jaw works back and forth grumbling and talking about eating some nice slop. It's too cute!
So my hubby came home with some yarn yesterday. I asked him what he was trying to get out of. He swears it was just an "I was thinking about you" gift. Cue the "awwww". :) The yarn is Estelle's Woolly Bully, and this one skein is freaking HUGE!
Seriously- that coke can is included for scale. This is BIG. I don't know what I'm going to make with it yet. I love the colors and it is really soft. The thing is, I'm currently in the middle of 2 scarves, plus I have a half-finished Clapotis somewhere. I don't need 4 scarves (especially since I've made it this far in the winter without wearing even one), so I think I'll swatch it for a bit and maybe try to design something with it.
Here's yesterday's progress on the Silk Rumple shawl. Everything from the orange pin and up is new. It's slow-going, but I only worked on it for an hour yesterday.
Here's the Noro scarf progress. I took a quick count last night, I think I'm at 78 stripes completed. I'm also thisclose to finishing the first 2 balls which means I'm almost halfway done!
Today we only have some errands to do once Jakob wakes up from his nap, so I hope to have much more progress to show off tonight.
