My youngest turns 3 this Saturday. Where did the time fly to? I still remember being in the hospital having him – in the middle of the night, with his brother in his jammies since we had to wake him up to drive to the hospital. He ended up falling asleep in the delivery room and all the doctors and nurses whispered throughout his brother’s delivery! They joked that it was the quietest delivery they had ever had! lol! Until he showed up and started screaming his head off! But big brother still slept through it all :-).
And I’m in denial that my oldest would have started kindergarten this last Monday (if we weren’t homeschooling that is!). I’m very glad that I don’t have to go through the emotions of putting him on a bus and sending him to school, but I’m experiencing all the other emotions – like disbelief that he can possibly be old enough to be in school! 🙁
On the knitting front, the Ravelympics are over! And I did pretty good with 4 projects crossing the finish line! 3 gift knits and one wip. I won’t post the gift photos here, but here’s the wip scarf that had been hibernating since 2006!
There’s a local natural baby products shop opening up, and the owner wants to sell wool diaper soakers/covers – and she’s asked me to supply her! (If you don’t know what soakers are, they are knitted pants for babies to wear over cloth diapers. They help to soak up any extra moisture and wick it away from baby’s skin.) So I’m busy knitting up a shop sample (and coming up with the pattern at the same time!), and then I’ll chug away at knitting up some soakers to sell. Hopefully I’ll make a little extra yarn money! 🙂 Wish me luck!
We’re off to King’s Mountain for a camping weekend! Let’s hope the rain stays away!
Catch you on the flip side! Have a great Labor Day!
