a mostly knitting update

Not much is new, in fact, practically nothing has happened this past week...but that is exactly what makes it spectacular to me :)
A lot has been quietly rolling around in my head however, I'm just glad life slowed a little to allow it to unfold as it has not all been positive and I've been more than a little bummed out lately.

I finished Zoe's Wallaby yesterday, but don't tell her. It's a surprise for her birthday and I told her it was a store sample. Devious mom...

also on the knitting front, I've committed to teaching a few more classes at the store, and will be doing the Sixteen Button Cardigan, Kid's Knitting, and Elizabeth Zimmerman's Baby Surprise Jacket (scroll down). I'm also working on a Noro Blythe Afghan. I made a square for a store sample and just fell madly in love with it. I am now knitting the entire afghan :)

went to Red Rocks today with the padre, then hopped over to Morrison Inn for margs...

this is Mack...I eventually had to trap him under a glass so I could enjoy my drink without threat of an attack

so, that's most of the excitement so far...we'll catch y'all later!

a new addition...

Welcome baby Ethan! A much awaited human with exceptionally large feet...I'm so thrilled for the whole family, and it was a truly beautiful birth. Congrats and big hugs to Duane and Shereen, and welcome to the tribe little peanut :)

In true man-style, passed out snoring (and tooting, it's worth mentioning this guy can let loose)

spinning update, finished this one last weekend...I'm just tickled with the results . It's Tracy Bunkers roving again.

And tonight we went to see Bad Luck City at Red Rocks ( you should give a listen, they're really good), and Donnie Darko (did I just date myself?). Oh yeah...we met Frank...don't hate.

and that's it for now I think. But I can leave you with a quote, you know, if you wanted more...

'Anything not forbidden is mandatory'

not sure who said that. But I'd like to re-phrase for personal blog:

'Anything forbidden is mandatory'

ok, now I can sleep :)
