I headed over to Alamitos Bay Yarn Co to spend the gift certifiate I won for the Dodger baby sweater. I really took my time and wandered all around the pretty little store. I finally decided on this:

Day 130/366


Getting caught up...


Made this afghan for John many years ago but am trying to get some past projects into Ravelry. I really liked this pattern as it is different for me to do anything in one color...

No gloom in June

The marine layer keeps creating dense fog like weather so although it doesn't quite feel like summer, the "busy"ness of the end of school year schedule tells me otherwise.

Class plays: Day 108/366 Sarah plays an "airhead" perhaps a little too well....

Dance Recitals: Day 110/366
The theme this year was The Circus so I had a baby elephant and a performing poodle.

Fathers Day Portraits: Day 111/366
I think I was being too ambitious.. 3 kids, 2 dogs.

Baby blankets: Day 106/366 I am really digging making blankets for babies in non-baby colors...

I have resorted to only knitting in the round which I finds very soothing for some reason....
