Today was busier than busy and I enjoyed every minute. Jan and Kelly came this morning for class. Jan finished her second intarsia Jemima Puddleduck. Kelly learned how to pick up a dropped stitch. And we laughed so much I only knit two rows all day!

My son must have been in a growth spurt today because no matter how much I fed him, he was still cranky! I sent him with his father to an early dinner and a movie (Olympus Has Fallen). They loved the movie…so send your men and you will have some lovely time to knit!

Tonight Jamie, Robin and I knit and shared an Italian blood orange liqueur. Chris and Kelly attended by text message. We had a great time and time flew. Robin finished the scarf for her son and Jamie is making great progress on the sweater she is test knitting. I have a new shawl pattern I am hammering out the details on with Nurturing Fibers yarn.

We had a great time at the Studio today. Everyone’s husband is on the S@#* List–they all must be on the same cycle. We laughed together as women struggling for sanity because otherwise all that would be left would be to cry. Knitting group tonight was even more fun–and yes, there were some hops (beer) involved.

Jamie is working on the test knit of my newest design. Robin is nearly done with her scarf for her son, Matthew. AND, Cathy (a fabulous crocheter) learned to do both the knit stitch and the purl stitch! YAY!!!

I played with my new Irish crochet book today and made two motifs using a technique I never heard of before. Now, I am wondering how I can incorporate that idea into knitting. Hmm…

The photo of our kitten Mozzie, well, it speaks for itself. Sigh…
