We came, we knitted, we ate gelato...
Yup, yarn barf. What a productive evening! I was stupid when packing my knitting bag, because I only brought one project which required hanks of yarn that have not yet been would into balls. I have a swift and ball winder on order from WEBS, and I wasn't going to use this yarn until I'd wound it with said swift and ball winder. I was not pleased when I sat down, opened up my bag, and realized what I'd done... At least I got gelato, a bear claw and some good gab to make me feel better. Thanks, ladies!
One of the things I was asked last night is how I can manage to be so productive with two small children at home. For those of you wondering the same thing, the answer is simple - neglect! My daughter spends more time in front of the television than she should (but it's all educational, so it's not so bad, right?), and my son dangles in his gigantic baby contraption:
That's what they're doing right now, while I blog, and I don't hear any crying. I mean, I don't beat them, I try to provide one enriching experience every other day or so (i.e. the zoo, the park, grammy's house), and I haven't yet farmed them out as child laborers, so I figure I'm doing an okay job of parenting!
That said, the boy is starting to squeak, so I'd better go rescue him. Hard to say what his big sister is doing to him right now!
