The Mean Mom

Just ask my 7 year old, he'll tell you. Don't believe him? Ask my 14 year old, if she still leaves you in doubt, my 17 year old can confirm it too.

Long time no see...

I've been busy seeing other stuff than you... Don't worry, it doesn't mean that I don't love you all... well all 6 of you.

It's been a bit crazy. Middle school graduation shopping, end of year field trips (one to DC the other to the zoo), and the biggest time consumer has been decluttering for the guy to come install AC on Tuesday. Lots of fun.

Some other stuff I've seen... Kyle "crossover" from a Wolf to a Bear in Cub Scouts. Kay getting a new job. Nikki deciding that water is nothing to be afraid of. All good things...

I'm still knitting away on my afghan squares, and as soon as I can, I'll post a picture of the one that I finished. Rope cables, and if doesn't sound too snotty, I'm very pleased by it. I need to block it, but it actually looks like what it is supposed to. There are a couple oopses, and I had to undo about 4 rows when I wasn't paying attention, but it's all good. And the oopses are hard to spot with the cables.

For mother's day a good friend sent me a gift certificate from a LYS and I am dying to get out to use it. I just need to decide what I want to make so I have a goal to focus on. There's a gorgeous sweater in Interweave that I would love to try... Wheat-Ear Cable Yoke . Now to just do a couple more of the afghan squares to feel more confident with the cables, then off I go to get yarn for that one...

Ok, I'm off to face the icky weather... thunderstorms, hail, tornadoes... Yeah, I live in MD... not the midwest.

    OK - now it's 7! :)
    Thank you again for the tip on my spelling err.

    I hope you can slow down and enjoy your weekend with your family.

    I love that sweater, too. But with my boobage, I'm just not sure it would look good on me. I'd probably want to extend the cabled section.

    So, I can just drool over yours, right? :)
