Graduation Song

Ainsley is kind of hard to see - the girl with the big hair is right in front of her. But Ainsley does pop out towards the end. Enjoy!

Ainsley "graduated" today from the Goddard School. She lead the class in and amazingly didn't wander off the path. She's a little spacey sometimes, but she was very focused. I have video, so you'll be seeing a few more of them over the next few days.

Knitting news - I'm slowly adding hexagons to the Swirl Shawl/Blanket...

Terrible picture but you get the point.

You may have noticed, this is two posts in two days. That might be a record for me. I'd like to continue this streak, but we'll see...

Another Birthday

And that's a bad sign, that my last post was ANDRA's birthday, and now it's Ainsley's birthday...seriously must get better at the posting thing. So, this one will be a big one.

But, today is Ainsley's birthday. She's 5. She got her birthday present from us 2 weeks ago - she got her ears pierced.

On the knitting front, Knitters for Knockers did the Komen Richmond Race for the Cure and raised $7,400!

We were the #7 team out of over 300 teams. Not bad for our first time out! Thanks to everyone who donated money to the team and prizes for the raffle. Congratulations to the raffle winners!

In other knitting news, we went to Maryland Sheep and Wool and had a great time. Sadly, I have NO pictures because I'm lazy and didn't take any. But we did lots of shopping, people watching, eating, and knitting. We also went to the Ravelry party and the Saturday meetup. Lots of fun!

I finished some stuff...

Clapotis from handpainted rayon I bought at Sheep and Wool:

And started some stuff...

Scrap sock yarn blanket (JoJoLand Swirl Shawl pattern)...

Rusted Root sweater for me in Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece...

For your video enjoyment, Andra is walking...

And laughing...

And brother Brian made a music video.
