Sunday funday

Sunday was a dreary rainy day, sure we had a bit of excitement in the morning when we awoke to the dining room floor covered with water. However the weather outside made us all feel tired and lazy.

I decided that I would get a jumpstart on packing my yarn (and posting my stash on my ravelry page)

As you can tell I have a little bit of a stash going on, and that is after donating a good chunk of it. I believe I only posted about 8 skeins of yarn before I ran into this

My project suddenly went from a fun “two hour” expedition to a nightmare, three quarters of the way through I caved and decided to cut ties literally , I broke out the scissors and had a field day. Much to my relief I only parted with a little bit of yarn, and as I took breaks every now and then to finish old projects

After about four hours, I had finally got everything all nice and tidy ready for the move

I know what you’re thinking, those are weird looking socks…? nope, this is a Moonkoosa, and they are super cute and easy to make. You may recall that last fall Toph got me the knitting book Woodland Knits, well this pattern is from the same woman who created all the patterns in said book. I was perusing her site Tiny Owl Knits the other day and fell in love with the pattern. I think the hardest part of the pattern was the two days I debated over whether or not I should purchase the pattern, I wanted to but we all know that I suffer from a little thing called knitter ADD. I am almost finished with the first boot and will continue to show my progress.

We had our last scout meeting last night, it was a blast. We went to an aquarium and Lorelai was excited about getting to touch the critters, she even pet a SHARK. Ok so a tiny shark but how cool is that?!
