What a weekend

I had such a great weekend. My mom and I were at Unwind for World Wide Knit in Public Day. It was great. All of the regulars were there and a few newcomers a few people interested in learning to knit. Overall a generally good time. It was rather cold so we had to bundle up and after a while we gave up and hid inside were we could stay warm.

This is some of us outside of the store. We were the early starters ready to go in the am.

This is my Mum getting her socks on two circulars lesson from Connie. I'm so proud of my mom. She gets easily discouraged and doesn't think she will ever feel confident about her knitting but she is doing great.

Here is Emma and her Trekk along with me sock. She is further along than all of the rest of us because Connie, Meghan and I got a little preoccupied with knitting lace shawls so...We better get back on track and take a hike together.

That was our knit in public day. It was great!! I wore the snowdrop shawl but it was so cold I had to trade it in for a sweat shirt. But just so you can see how it turned out.......

The rest of my weekend involved watching my bf's nephew. It was only going to be a movie at first (we went to see Cars) and then Aaron was calling his sister to ask if Noah could stay over. So today we took him to the flea market to buy him candy and hot wheels cars and then we took him to the park until we were too cold ("but I'm not cold auntie Sarah") and then I came home to go for dinner at my grandma's place.

And yes the four year old has his own mini four wheeler that he and his uncle play with together. Now tell me who was this thing really a gift for?

Overall a great weekend. I am very tired. I am hoping that before I got to bed that I will have the body of the baby blanket for my cousin finished and the border started. But since my hand made socks have all gone missing I'm determined to whip though my koigu socks so I know I have a pair. Plus it looks like I have an interview tomorrow that I need to prepare for. Yikes and Yippee. I don't want to make a big deal out of it yet because it doesn't mean I get the job but...I'm excited because this is a start. I wasn't going to tell anyone but I know a few people who read this will be rooting for me. Wish me luck.

I'm certainly rooting for you, If you interview half as well as you knit, you are a shoo in!
