Getting Dirty

So my husband's out of town for the week. That leaves me to fend on my own. Nothing I can't handle of course (with lots of wine and yarn). At least it gives me the opportunity to finish his Father's day present - we'll celebrate once he gets home. And as he is across the Pond, I'm sure he's not checking the blog, so here it is....




Those are my lovely pink toes. I have basically the same size feet as JW so the first pair looks close to being done. I found the pattern online and the cabling at the sides is very cute (XOXO), but masculine at the same time. The picture doesn't really do it justice.


I quite like them, thank you very much.


Of course I'm not working on these solely. My Rusted Root is taking shape very well. I'll save pictures of that for next time. Can't ruin all the surprises.


As the single-parent for the week I get the joy of taking care of things such as this....



Do you see the smile on his face?? He is SOOOOO excited to be covered in muck. This one, he's trouble.

You can't imagine what the bath water looked like. Honestly....

(And J. - your Tuscany ROCKS)

Thanks, T.

Nice mudbath. You know, it's probably good for his skin.

Can't wait to see your Rusted Root.

Being a single parent sucks. I don't know how people actually do it full time. And the pic of your son in the mud is too cute. Elliot once ate dirt when she was about 18 months old - that made for some charming pictures...

Mr. Trouby-troubs looks like he was having a fabulous time! Mom, how could you ruin his fun?

I love your blog, and J's xmas comments - I feel the exact same way! My knitting ADHD is getting the best of me - I have 6 projects on the go. The yarn just looks so lonely sitting in its neat little ball. Why do I do this to myself?

I checked out Make1knits last night - lovely! I hope you can come to Calgary soon and we can visit it together!
