A Knitty Birthday!

Jeff and the girls went to our LYS to buy my birthday presents! This shop is wonderful . I could spend hours here.

Jeff gave me a yarn winder and a SWIFT!! I was sort of expecting the winder, but getting a swift as well was quite the surprise!

Molly gave me this lovely sock yarn(red mix from Yarn for sox) which actually looks like a raspberry red color. I will be making above the knee socks for myself with these. Laura gave me THE most beautiful needles I have ever seen(or used). They are white birch with a clay finial(purple with yellow flowers) made by Serendipity. I am using the needles for a small mystery present, and can’t wait to try the yarn( I think I need more dpn’s!). The girls and I had lots of fun using the swift and winder yesterday.

We then went out to Olive Garden for supper, always a treat. Added to the gift from the big kids from a few days ago, and my day was awesome!

Thanks guys, I love you all!

What color should my hair be?


Your Hair Should Be Orange


Expressive, deep, and one of a kind.
You pull off “weird” well – hardly anyone notices.

What’s Your Funky Inner Hair Color?

Do you think Jeff would notice orange hair? ; )

Moneyville

Today I took the girls and Aaron(family friend) to the RMSC to see the exhibit about money. Laura didn’t think she was going to like it, but was pleasantly surprised. I’m hoping to see it one more time before it moves on, maybe on a day when it isn’t so full of school kids.

Before we got to the new exhibit, we looked up some old favorites. 2A and Molly were trying to use the hot air to get the ball through the loops.

This is a giant bubble. You pull up the rod and it has the soap solution on it. Lots of fun!

Using weighted cubes to balance a budget. I thought this was a great idea, Laura really learned from this. I think our next trip to the RMSC will be to the planetarium, as we haven’t been yet.

Can we delete last week?

I was sick with an allergy/cold thing all week, and didn’t get to enjoy Catherine’s visit home. Pretty much all I did was sit on the couch and sleep or knit.
