It was with trepidation that I delivered my 2 entries for the Wool Show on Saturday. It was also with a touch of sadness as I really, really love that hat and would've liked to WEAR it next weekend. So after delivering it to the lovely Dot in Wheelers Hill I met a few of the 'Rocketeers' at The Wool Village in Brandon Park and bought 100g of a Chunky Fireside to knit another one. Here 'tis :)
I am now on the hunt for a nice/quick mitten pattern so I can keep my hands warm :) Stay tuned, I shall update with pics as I go. I have no matching wool so am going to look like some weird freaky woollen lady with mismatched knits all over :P (unless I make a trip to Brandon Park during the week to buy more of this..... which is really too far to go, isn't it?)
So the boy is a boy and anything Dad can do he wants to do, too!
Today was round 2 of the Fat Tyre Flyers' 2009 Winter series and we all went along. He requested number three-one-one for his bike so I made one up last night and hubby attached it to his bike. Boy was pretty pleased :)
We arrived just before 9 and the race finished at 1, he was on his bike the whole time! Riding around and practicing up and down hills and on dirt and gravel and mud. He wanted to race but was not impressed when the officials pointed out that Juniors need to be 13, "I'm nearly thirteen, I'm already 3." was the reply.
