And then we had the boys over some of their spring break ... River only stayed for one night (there are no video games at the Wind Walker, what can I say?) but we had Gibson for a week. Hailey came over at the same time, which was wonderful -- a week on a boat with an almost-seven-year-old would be a bit much if we didn't have some help! We had lots of fun, but the days flew by ... I took exactly one picture.
It's really small and I may end up frogging it, but it was fun to knit. Started another test knit I can't even tell you about yet...
Also finished the Mystery KAL from Susanna I-C -- it's called Aimatia, it's a beauty, and here's what the designer says about it:
"Aimatia is of Latin origin meaning ‘from the garden of flowers’.
The inspiration for this shawl came from the incredible tulip fields in Netherlands. The colorful flowers seem to go on for miles - it is really amazing. Aimatia ‘grows’ exactly like a real tulip plant - after the stockinette ‘ground’ the lace begins with simple shapes that look like flower bulbs. These lace shapes grow into stems and leaves, much like a real tulip plant. Finally, the tulip blooms open at the top of the plants."
I finally got the handspun Pi shawl blocked, too...
Well, it's not going well, the poor little guy is having a pretty hard time coordinating all that stuff we have to do with our fingers in order to create a stitch. But you can see from the look on his face how excited he is to try it!
