Happy Valentine's Day

Kissy pigs. This was Liam's present. Too cute huh? The hearts have velcro.

It's a Miracle!

I found BLUE Kool-aid at the store! I bought 25, and that was just the blue. The cashier looked out of the corner of her eye at my 16 month old and said, "my, that's a lot of Kool-Aid." I feltl compelled to explain it was for yarn not drinking. She only thought me stranger. She isn't a yarnie she can't be expected to understand. And why did I feel the need to prove I'm not a bad mom and filling my kid up with Kool-Aid?

Okay, so I am seriously lacking in my new adventures this year. I plan to try a whole bunch of new techniques. Like colorwork. I don't know if it's the thought of so many ends but I see colorwork in a pattern and run. So I plan to knit along with the webs podcast and do Bird in the Hand mittens. They are truly beautiful. So useful in Southern CA right? I can't guarantee success, but I will try.
