Parker's birthday party in particular was particularly knitting-time consuming... as I needed to put a lot of things together when his prying eyes weren't looking. His party was Lego Star Wars theme and Parker's mama got crafty!
Whether it was pool noodle light sabers we used to fight Storm Trooper balloons....
Or personally molded chocolates for loot bags and cupcakes...
Or the "dark and the light" side cupcakes that we served our guests....
Or just the general decor and food prep.... (also.... this is NOT my house...)
I think Parker liked his party. (He's five... he's not effusive with praise.) He has that pool noodle light saber sleep in his room with him at night. (Even though he has THREE actual Star Wars light sabers...)
Sadly- knitting progress is on the light side. (I'm hoping to change that for the rest of this month in particular.) It's there, but it's small. Hey look I finished another hat!
AND- I got the mittens off the blockers this am... which means I need to cast on another pair the minute this blog post is complete.
Pattern: Sydanmaa Mittens by Hanna Levaniemi
Yarn: Illimani Yarn Silky Baby Llama in 9208 (beige)
Needles: US 4
Notes: Not only is this yarn buttery in texture, but it's warm. SO WARM. I loved this pattern so much (and it's quite simple) that I'm going to make another pair for me... because PRETTY!
At one point the ball of yarn was in my lap and I was like "why is my lap so warm in this particular spot?" and realized it was where the yarn was sitting. Hoping they are liked by the teacher!
Okay... I'm going to go and sit and knit for a bit. It's going to be AWESOME.
