We have decided on a Movie theme for our convention. I think I will be some sort of princess, but I'm not sure yet. I've had a few different ideas running through my head. I am looking forward to going to the costume shop to see what's available.
On the lion front - I have cut out most of the pieces, then I ran out of pins and borrowed some from the in-laws. Then last night when I was going to cut out the rest I couldnt find the pins. Strange strange. I'll try again tonight. If all else fails, I need pink yarn, milk and baby tylenol so I'll get more when I get those things, and give the MIL the new ones. I am still scared spitless at the thought of actually sewing this thing - especially since I dont understand some of the instructions. Should prove to be quite interesting!
I worked a little tiny bit on the co-worker's housewarming afghan. I'm not even half done with with 1 square... so I'm pretty sure this will not be done by the party on 5/26! Today I brought the skull hat pattern and a hook, and I'll try to crochet it. If that works then I'll submit it to the crochet calendar. I have never crocheted a hat bottom up, but I think I can do it like knitting, except make the cuff shortways. We'll have to see how that works out...wish me luck.
That's really it for now, have a fantastic weekend.

Not done yet, but the rest is just black. I'll post a pic when I'm done. I am thinking about putting this pattern in for the calendar. I am also going to try it in crochet with the same chart, to see how that works out. Should be interesting since I've never done a chart in crochet before.
He's done well with them, eating a half jar each day for 4 days. Today: peas.
On Sunday Jake was enjoying the camera and took these:
We had Sean's 3 month pics taken on Saturday and I will get them back on 5/3. I'm looking forward to it.

I have been working on the crochet sock, and got to the heel part. I've ripped it out 3 times now. Hopefully tonight at crochet group someone can help me. It's not a very well written pattern and I am thisclose to making it up. I will give the pattern one more chance.
I got my new Yarn Harlot book. Go here and get yours too!http://www.amazon.com/Stephanie-Pearl-McPhee-Casts-Off-Knitting/dp/1580176585/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/103-0794285-8771840?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1175713924&sr=8-1
I have really only thumbed through it but am looking forward to reading it. I'm about 3 inches away from finishing secondsock. Thats great progress I think. And, unlike it's crocheted cousin, I have not wanted to throw it across the room.
I guess thats really about it. Sorry for the no-pics. And before you ask, I already have my pretty pink camera back in my purse where it belongs.
