Bouncing Around

On Wednesdays I don't usually have to teach, so it's a wonderful day for me to relax and catch up on stuff around the house. (Well, I'm supposed to do that, but usually I just sit around and knit . . . Shhhhh, don't tell anyone!)

I finished the basic scarf from Victorian Lace Today, and I'm fairly pleased with it (another Christmas gift done, hooray!). I think if I make it again, I'll either make it narrower for a scarf, or wider for a stole. I'm very happy with my model, though. Isn't he handsome? Plus, he's cheap - only one piece of candy per modeled shot!

Want to know what the kids do while I'm knitting? Why, bounce off the walls - and the couch - and the cushions - you get the idea.

At least they seem to be having a good time. Plus, it gets rid of some of their excess energy with minimal energy expenditure on my part.

That's very important.

So what is my next Christmas project? Heh heh heh . . . Wouldn't you like to know . . . .


Lynntinnee said...'re hilarious, I'm glad that runs in the family, we both have the same humor...funny that you mentioned Wed is your day off to catch up on things around the house, but instead you knit LOL...well don't feel too guilty b/c here I am at work "supposed" to be working but I just spent about 30-45 min cleaning up my blog and updating my whole blog site! pfft, the employees can deal, I work hard enough for those losers LOL (note my sarcasm again)

but now my blog is all pretty and updated! yay! I'm so proud of myself :) now I just need to add more fans - additional crazy sarcastic types like myself to enjoy my humor.

although I am thankful that you and Angie are my biggest fans! that's truly the only reason I'm on here - to keep up with you two loves of my life! :) Love you!

Love the kids on the couch. My son would fall off. . .he's not very coordinated!!

I think you're model is just top-notch! Wow, what deal too (watch out though, with age comes inflation right Lol).

My kiddies entertain themselves in various ways similar to yours while I knit too ;) Sometimes my 2 boys get a little out of hand, ah well boys will be boys.

Very good idea with the note cards btw. Makes remembering a whole lot easier I'm sure. Plus it's great for seeing what you've accomplished, and what you've got left to do :)

Pretty scarf! I am dropping you a line to let you know about "Blogless Lynn". She now has a title for her blog and no longer has a excuse for not writing one. Call and harrass her as soon as possible so she can tell you all about it!
