WIP Wednesday #63 - A Little Summer in our Spring

Happy Wednesday everyone : )

Wow, what a crazy week it has been! The weather has been amazing and I have certainly made the most of it!
On Saturday, I ran 12km in the Canmore Woman's Run (and as of today, I can finally say I am walking without a limp).
On Sunday for Mother's Day, we had a picnic in the park for lunch.

I'm so proud to be these two hooligans' mum

And a family BBQ at home for supper.

Yesterday was my hubby's birthday.

Tomorrow, we are headed for Vancouver for the long weekend! Tons of fun, but I am already exhausted.

I am very excited for this Work-in-Progress Wednesday because, despite all the craziness, I finally have something to show you other than the never-ending, gag-me-with-a-Cherry cardigan.

Well, I have that to show you too.

All that is left is a few ends to weave and seven buttons. I going to look for then today! With a little luck, I will have a finished object to show you on Friday.

In the meantime, I have made good progress on the baby blanket and the second sock.

I have also started another cute-as-a button Milo for a friend's new babe.

I love how quick these knit up!

Hope to see you Friday for the KAL cardigan reveal!!

Cheers, Nikki
