WIP Wednesday #97 - School's Out
Happy Wednesday everyone!
School is over for the year, and suddenly I am feeling the full weight of being a stay-at-home-momma of three. Not to mention, the flood has put a serious damper on my strategies for keeping the kids occupied. Hiking in the mountains? Nope, the highway is washed out. Zoo? Closed for three weeks - also I'm a little freaked that the hippos almost escaped. Community splash park? Dry until the water restrictions are lifted. Yikes!! I'm relying on playdates for now... ok and maybe the odd movie (or two).
Having said that, I'm am making fast tracks on my M is for Momma Monster. I think I will be at the point of stuffing and assembly by Thursday.
Do you like how my project bag matches my monster? Total coincidence but it's got me thinking... wouldn't it would be great to have a matching bag for every project? (If my husband could read my mind, he'd be leaping off the couch right now to chop up my credit cards.)
The monster making has been quick but it has not been without its casualties.
I have no idea what happened here. I know I tend to knit tighter when I magic loop but this is ridiculous. You can see in the first pic that I'm now knitting with a brand new ChiaoGoo Red fixed circular. The bend at the join takes a little getting used to, but other than that, they are great so far.
Now the biggest question is what to knit next? I have a plan for something I can't start until July 1st but in the meantime I have a few ideas. The choices seem to fall into two categories: what I want to knit and what I should knit. I guess you will have to check back next Wednesday to see which one wins!
I will finally get to show you my new spring top on Friday and be sure to check back Sunday to see what I picked up at the Olds Fibre Week (hint - there just might be giveaway too).
Hope you are enjoying your Wednesday currently "in progress" - ha, I slay myself.
