Celtic sweater almost complete

I blocked the sleeves today and I hope to sew them in tonight. It’ll depend on whether they are dry or not. That’s the problem with blocking on the rug in the basement family room, it takes forever for stuff to dry. Unfortunately it’s the only good place for me to block. Speaking of blocking does anyone know of a place online that I could buy a blocking board? Or maybe some suggestions on what’s good to use for blocking. The rug is good, but I worry about my girls or the cats getting at the pins. If I had something portable I could lean on the wall in a room that’s off limits to children and felines alike.

I’ve started little G’s winter hat. It’s nothing fancy, dark blue with a white contrasting edge and a white tassel. At least I think since it’s still a pattern in my head. It feels strange knitting with 5 mm dpns after working on 3 mm straight needles for so long.

Little A had a wonderful birthday. Her favorite gift would have to be the puzzles she got. I think she was given four puzzles in all even one that goes on the fridge.  Today she did a 24 piece Dora puzzle all by herself. Pretty good for a 3 yr. old. Now if potty training could only work that well. Little A still isn’t trained and is only mildly interested. Little G is about the same, but she’s not even 2 yet. I’m going to train them together. I wish I had started little A earlier but I avoided it when I found out we’d be moving.  Tonight she kept putting her doll on the potty and reading to her. I’m hoping this is a good sign. I’m doing the sticker chart thing too.


Ally after her birthday hair cut. She looks a little stunned, but this was the best picture I could get. She tends to be goofy in front of the camera.


The birthday girl eating her cake. Thanks to everyone who came out on Saturday.
