FO Report!

First off, the binder has been found. It was left at the apartment and the company that does the coporate housing had it at their office. Thank goodness that their office is close, in Rancho Cordova. The kiddo's and I took a little trip down there yesterday. I could have kissed the woman at the office. Now WHY they didn't contact Safeway and tell them that we had left some belongings there......I'll never know.

Ok on to knitting..... I have 2 finished objects! Wait. did you hear that? Two, count them, TWO FO's.

First up is my International Scarf Exchange scarf. I really liked how it turned out. I would wear this myself. I LOVE the yarn (Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk DK) and the pattern (Zig Zag Scarf). I first saw this pattern over at Anne's, The Knitty Gritty, and I had to order it. Go look at the lace weight cardi she just made. Lace weight! I think I will be making one of these for me in pink. So soft and warm! I think my pal will really like it, at least I hope she does.

And second up is the felted ballerina slippers by Fiber Trends. I made these for Katie out of Cascade 220. She really likes them, and of course she calls them princess shoes. What is it about 4 year old girls and princesses? I made the pattern with the strap but during the felting process, the strap felted so much it would no longer go over her foot! So I just cut it off.



And because I can't just take a picture of Katie's feet....a shot of Ben's as he was running around this morning. And trust me, it's a miracle that he has ONE sock on! He now thinks he IS Buzz Lightyear. He even wants to be called Buzz. So I have a Princess and Buzz, and they call the baby, Baby Dragon. Buzz saves the Princess hundreds of times a day from the dragon. The dragon thinks it's funny and yells BOO everytime. Kids.....................

Oh and no my floor is not dirty....there is water damage to the wood floor in front of the door to the deck.... I could never have a floor THAT dirty!
