A big “Happy Father’s Day” to all the fathers, grandfathers, foster parents, step-fathers, and any man who makes a positive difference in a child’s life. You rock!
In honor of Daddy’s Day, I’ll share with you some photos of Yannick and Jakob at the park on Saturday evening.
We had a really fun time at the park, and I was so happy to watch them together that I didn’t mind pushing the empty stroller around. Honest. 😉
We hit a little milestone last week- Jakob is no longer in his bucket! He’s officially tall enough to be out of it, AND is past the weight maximum, so I brought him over to the police station and had a nice officer install his new car seat for me. It’s also his first time being forward-facing in the car, and it took him a day or so to get the confused look off of his face.
I knew the Mary Maxim submission would be coming to an end soon (I have to mail it on Monday), so I started pulling out my supplies for the next project. These are my two yarn choices for Eden’s shrug:
The first is some pink Cindy Cotton Look that I inherited from my grandmother. I have 2 huge cakes of this stuff, and no ideas for a good project. I thought it would be really sweet for the shrug, and if the gauge works out, this is my first choice.
As a second option, I have more of my seemingly-never-ending supply of dusty rose Patons Decor. I swear this stuff seems to multiply in my stash. I’m sure the gauge will work for this, but it would make a much different garmet, much heavier and “wintery”, and I hope I don’t have to use it.
I’m sure I have a ton of other options in my stash too, should neither of these work. But I’ll be swatching tonight and will have a better idea of what will work later.
