Gift for Baby

I finished knitting a baby blanket for a certain little new baby (can't say who as i haven't mailed it out yet - its a surprise) I had to wrestle it out of Monkey's hands though....he thought it was really comfy and wanted to keep it for himself. Greedy little Monkey.

Craft Room "Playground"

As I promised, here are the pictures of Monkey in Grandma's Craft Room "Playground".
It's understandable why Monkey loves going to Grandma's so much...... just look at how much fun he had!
First, he climbed around on the "Jungle Gym" (storage racks)

After "hanging around" on there for a while....

he started exploring all the boxes and bins....

But his favorite part of this fun new playground had to be the "swift-go-round"


Monkey can't wait to go visit Grandma again!

Trip to Grandma's House

I recently took Monkey on a little trip to his Grandma's house. Boy was he excited! I got him his own little day pack which he packed all by himself.

This was Monkey's first car ride where he got to sit in the front seat all by himself! I could tell he felt like a very important monkey.

It didn't take long for Monkey to get into mischief when we got to Grandma's. He decided it would be funny to sneak Shelby's food.

But he got caught.

Shelby didn't think it was funny.

Not one bit!

After I saved Monkey from the mighty jaws of Shelby, I showed him Mom's (Grandma to him) craft room.....well to him it was just a giant playground.... I have pictures but I will post them next time. :-)

WooHoo! More Yarn!

I finally found a yarn shop close to where I live (well, pretty close anyway) It's a great shop called "Kept-In-Stitches" in Fort Langley, BC. Now I don't have to go visit Mom every time I need to buy more knitting stuff (but I will anyway) So, what did I buy?..... I'll show you.... well, actually, MONKEY will show you.....

"Hey, Mom brought home something!"

"Hmmmm.... What's in here?"

"Oooooh! This looks fancy!"

"COOL! It's a skein of Noro Kureyon!.....the exact amount to make a funky toque!!!"

It's really nice stuff, but it can sure burn a hole in your wallet though! $12 for ONE skein! Holy Crapoli!!!! At least I only needed one skein.

My weekend of stash-enhancing didn't end there. I know about a million women having babies (okay, okay, maybe not a million) and I've been sucked into the world of baby-knitting.... (not that I mind or anything...baby stuff is sooooo cute) So.... I went to Michael's Crafts (a little more affordable yarn there) and bought some cool white yarn for a baby blanket. It's got a shiny thread in it too so it looks sparkly but you can't really tell from the picture. It's turning out really good! It's my first attempt at "holes" in my knitting (not sure what it's called but I'm pretty sure it's not really lace) I will post some pictures soon.
