Weekend Update

This weekend kicked off on Thursday night with the final Learn to Knit class taught by Carolina from the Fuzzy Goat in Thomasville. Carolina is a great teacher, and these lovely ladies took to knitting like fish to water!


I also spotted some amazing April Fool’s jokes on Facebook that had me LOLing. Anyone else spot any good ones?

 

Also, this slays me.

 
Turns out we aren’t the only ones, Wheat!

Friday was non-stop torrential downpours, but when the rain cleared out, we had the most gorgeous Saturday!

I spent most of the day working at Maiden South, and of course had to sneak in my weekly shop bump pic. I absolutely cannot believe we’ve only got 4 weeks or so to go before we meet this little babe!

 

I spent a good amount of time relaxing and knitting this weekend. I cast on a simple cream baby bonnet to match the tiny pants I already knit this baby, and then promptly ran out of yarn. Picking up another skein of Spud and Chloe Sweater this week at Fuzzy Goat.

PS we just got these adorable little Maiden South knit/crochet gauge rulers in – $20 and we’ve got ’em listed online!  
So I also worked on my Slope tank (below) as well as casted on yet another baby hat – this one in Appalachian Baby Organic Cotton with lots of sweet little cables. The weather was so nice I did lots of outdoor knitting!  I’ll do a complete knitting post with patterns as soon as I get some pictures.

PPS Birkenstocks = Summer Uggs.  Ugly, but so comfortable.

 
Sunday I did some much-needed sleeping in with these two critters. And by sleeping in I mean I got out of bed at 8:30. Weh. #imold

 
I got to work satisfying a craving while also breaking in our Christmas present from my parents: making pancakes in our Blanc Creatives skillet! It is an absolute DREAM to cook on!



Again, please.

Sunday was mostly knitting, very-much-needed relaxing, Wheat smoked a Boston butt, and I packed my hospital bag. The countdown to baby K is on!

Have a great week, friends!

 

Leap Day 2016

Another weekend gone, another Leap Day in the books!  Here’s a recap of our weekend – it flew by!

Thursday (which I totally count as a weekend… it makes them feel longer! Wheat and I met my sister and niece for lunch at Crave Eatery.  Nat Nat and E had some play time in the sun on the back porch.  Don’t mind the awkward, sun-in-my-eyes look I’ve got going on.

I did double-duty and worked at the shop on Friday.  My mom was keeping my niece and brought her up for round 2 in Bainbridge!  I don’t know that they make them any cuter, but I’m telling baby K to get with the program.

We got this awesome quilt in from Needle and Grain, and my mom took this awesome picture.  It would be perfect for a baby’s room… but I’m not allowing myself to take it home.  Somebody else do it before I do!

Saturday I washed windows and then cleaned them from the inside, too.  It was a lot, and my OCD sort of took over and I ended up scrubbing down doors and such.  Much needed spring cleaning!  Then Sunday we made a pit stop at Home Depot after church for some plants.  I did some potting and Wheat and I both put out tons of pine straw.  Our yard looks so much better now!  Don’t mind the dead grass, weeds, and wilted looking pansies.  Hopefully with daily watering they perk up!

We finally picked a couple of camellias to go in front of our shed – an area that has been an eye sore since we built the shed.  I love them!

I spruced up all our pots on the patio, which was also desperately needed. Love these deep purple pansies, even if they look a little bedraggled here.

I also got rid of our patio furniture.  It had cushions, which has meant that since we got Juin, it has become her outdoor bedding.  We couldn’t use it ourselves because it stayed dirty, and I was tired to cleaning it just for her to dirty it up again.  BE GONE!  So now I’ll be on the hunt for metal furniture with ZERO CUSHIONS.

And then whilst watching the Oscars last night, I finished up this little pair of adorable tiny britches for baby K!  They still need washing and blocking – does anyone get weird gaps when knitting on double pointed needles?  I’m hoping those even out when I wash and block them.  Tips?

I cannot believe in 2 short months, I will have a baby to wear them!  In the meantime, they’re such a quick knit and so darn cute, I’ll be knitting another pair of them. :)

I plan on sharing the baby’s nursery next week if I can finish up a couple of last minute projects… but until then, here’s my Sunday morning happy view.
