On the Road Again...

This time to Raleigh, Charlotte and Tampa. The next two weeks are going to be crazy. On top of all the travel, Ainsley is sick - just a fever we think, but still...ugh.

Busy weekend - not a lot of knitting though. We went to the Metro Richmond Zoo, which was kind of cool. Ainsley said the penguins were her favorites, and I'm inclined to agree. Chris and I took down the ugly flourescent light in our kitchen and over the course of two days and some help from our neighbor, managed to hang a pretty cool pendant light:

Hooray for home improvement!

In knitting news, the clap is getting bigger, and I'm about halfway done with the body of a baby sweater. Suzanne asked what projects the yarn from KnitPicks will be for...

The pink Shine is for a baby, but not mine. A co-worker just got news that her adoption from China is going to happen in April, so it's quick get-ready-for-baby time, so that means a hand-knit. The sock yarn is for, you guessed it, socks. The blue yarn is for socks as well, and the Shimmer is for the Hanging Garden Lace Stole. Whew!

I did bring my camera on my trip, so maybe some pictures tomorrow...

Nice one! Pink sweaters for babies are always a good idea. Shimmer lace and socks also meet with my approval.

Sick kid no good. My neighbors have all had the barfing thing. We do not have it yet, but I live in fear. I hate the barfing thing.

I guess I should show my current stash enhancement--all due for knitting up SOON. I did Knitpicks AND a yarn sale this week. Party on wayne! Party on garth!

Oh, that stole is going to be gorgious! Can't wait to see you knit it up!


P.S. I got my Shimmer in the mail today, too! Wow, is that stuff soft! I think mine might become a Clapotis. Or some other shawl....
