Last weekend our family friends came over to my parents' house for dinner. They have two beautiful, smart, polite daughters. Jack was smitten. I will have to teach him about personal space and keeping his hands to himself.

Made a few other things I though were worth showing. First off - the sewn voile infinity scarf. I picked a bold floral print on one side, and understated, grey geometric one on the other. Really like to wear this over drab winter clothes to will the spring to come sooner.

Took another class at Stitch. This one involved making zipper pouches. LOVED how it turned out. It really looks legit!

So I dreamt up, designed, and knit up a little hat for my cousin's baby boy. My cousin is VERY much into lizards, so I knew I had to incorporate a lizard in my design. In the process I learned how to double-knit. The lizard was tricky to do without having some skewing here and there, but perfection is not the goal here.
Off to be mailed tomorrow. I really hope she likes it. Really, really hope she does.
|It's a lizard|
|Don't like how you can see between stitches, but overall not bad|
|Another thing I learned - for tight pom-poms, use lots of yarn|
|Also - learned that blocking makes a great deal of difference - from now on, I'm blocking everything|
|Reversible - the inside might look just as good as the outside|

I've taken sewing lessons before. I've sewn a few projects. But when Stitch started offering beginning sewing classes this month, I had to sign up. For one, my sister - who has never sewn before - signed up and I wanted to support her. And two - I just love the store, the friendly owners, and their merchandise.
I met some lovely ladies and got to do something fun with my little sister, creating something for my baby boy. And I also learned something new. All in all, a wonderful event. I've already signed up for a couple more classes coming up.

My little dude is stylin'. He is starting to develop preferences in clothes. It's super cute and sometimes really inconvenient (toddlers don't care about seasons/temperatures/color coordination). The tights he wore today are a riot. I bought a few different ones via a great deal on Zulily. He will be getting a lot of mileage out of them as they allow him to move around unrestrained.

|Take a seat. We need to talk. It's time for an intervention...|

Today I reluctantly went back to work, Jeff started his new part-time gig, and Jack headed back to daycare. He missed his buddy JM, and the two of them held hands throughout the day. Our sleeping schedule is off, so all three of us are tired. We'll be definitely hitting the pillows early tonight. Speaking of pillows, this little boy discovered the joys of jumping on the bed. Here he is, being cute and bouncy.
