Well, there were some unfortunate going-ons with one of my teenage sisters, but wrt my boys, etc., it was great.
The boys had a blast in the sand, as you can see. We didn’t see their natural skin color all weekend! Alas, I only got a few rows done but spending time with the fam was important. They did have a good time razzin’ me for wearing Tim’s headlamp/flashlight to knit with, though. Too bad I didn’t get a pic of that! Here is all the further I ever got with the MS3.
Apparently, I’m just not at a place right now where I can knit lace. My only chance is after the boys go to sleep, and that’s taken up with housework (yes, I do occasionally clean), sewing projects (like the 3 dozen diapers still waiting to be sewn for my sister who is due in less than a month), knitting & and sewing for my Etsy store, spending time with my dh… you get the idea. As of today my supplies will be winging their way to another MDC mama who can make use of them as part of her MBOY (magic ball of yarn) package:
Speaking of MDC swaps, here is the watch I received from mamadege5 on MDC:
I *love* it! I was a bit nervous, because she wasn’t able to post any pics of her work or beads, but it ended up being totally unnecessary. 🙂 So happy I took a chance!
It sounds like my computer time is about to be ended by the amount of frantic bouncing I hear coming from the Johnny Jumper, so I’d better post this! OH — I forgot — my Etsy blanket sold! Thank you, thank you — if the buyer was a mama who reads here — I really appreciate it!
