Mmmm . . . Cake

Four little cakes
of scrumptiousness!

My favorite flavors too:
wool and silk

Fall just can't get here soon enough.
The sweet treats
pictured above are for a 
shawl (that cake of dark blue Tussah silk)
and a scarf (the medium blue and the multi-colored cakes).

A Knit A Week: Eye Candy Addition

Eye Candy you ask??
And I reply,
Is there better eye candy out there than
. . . .
my adorable boy buttoned into
the lovely, wooly goodness that
is Malabrigo Rios yarn.

I didn't think so!!

This knit is a test knit I did for Terri Kruse.
It is from her just released e-book
of knitting patterns:  "The Vintage Ice Cream Truck".
This is "Sammie".

Those cheeks, those widdle chubby hands!!

He's your cheeseburger.

I used the distraction of:
Where is Papa's Massey Ferguson?
to keep him still!

Adorable "dragon slayer" buttons from etsy seller:
Buy some of her amazing buttons, you
will not be disappointed!!

Overheard At Dinner

Queen:  Okay, how about you eat half of your chicken and we will call it good?

Princess #3:  I can't.

Queen:  quizzical pause

Princess #3: (in all non-sarcastic seriousness) There are three and you can't divide three in half, Mama.

Queen: (between giggles) That is correct . . . glad someone is paying attention during math!!  Now eat these pieces, my dear Miss Literal!!
