No way could I run with the youngest manlet yesterday, I was struck down by a horrible migraine all day. *sigh* However – we are definitely going to run today!! I think we’re going to go for 4 today – I want to push it a little & push him a little, too. :) Might shoot for 2 with no walk breaks instead, though. I think I’d rather do 4 with walk breaks, to be honest. he he he
I am SO excited!! I have serious hopes of finishing up Draco this weekend. A week is pretty much normal for me on a pair of socks – less if I spend time working on them every day, but I haven’t been able to do that with these. I didn’t knit on them at all yesterday, the headache was just too bad to do much of anything. Once I get them finished up, I’ll be getting the pictures done up just right and then will be sitting down & writing up the pattern. I am SO excited because I absolutely LOVE how they are turning out. As a bit of a hint – everyone has really liked them so far, but neither of the manlets would actually wear them, so they won’t be a good pick for socks for men. Which I kind of already knew, of course, but I wanted these socks for ME anyway. he he he
So the oldest manlet took on a wall Thursday night with his hand… and the wall won. Normally, I get on him about learning to better channel his temper. However, circumstances being what they were? I honestly cannot blame him… by the time the night was over with, I wanted to punch a relatively immovable object myself (though mine was in the form of a woman that is probably 6 inches taller than me and easily 50+ pounds more than me, too). So he & I had a visit to a lovely new ER – where we quickly discovered that the waiting time isn’t any better than the busiest ERs in the area. We didn’t get to bed until 2am – which is what caused the migraine, of course.
Have a picnic at the park scheduled for tomorrow to hang with knitting friends – eat, gab & knit! I am looking forward to that SO much!
Today’s Ravelry Search
Today I have challenged myself. I wanted to highlight some really fantastic patterns that are all available to purchase via Ravelry. Why would I do that? Simple – I think we should support Ravelry however we can… and buying patterns through their site accomplishes that objective rather well! As does clicking ads, making a purchase & letting the seller know that you made your way via their Ravelry ad! So I declare today the “Support Rav” day! :D Check these out…
Just because I cannot say enough how much I love her stuff, here’s a link to her patterns! :D
I had a blast putting this post together! Spent a little money, but that is exactly my intent here! I hope that I’ve enabled some of you to go & spend a wee bit, too – show your support!! :D
Happy Saturday, everyone!
