Cuteness Follows

Still no knitting pics - can't be bothered to get the camera out (talk about lazy Sunday!)

Lately I cannot stay focused on a project. I mean, don't get me wrong, I do have a habit of beginning things frenetically and then abandoning them when they take too long. But I mean, I am getting about 3 inches in and casting on for something new. What is that about?

I started crocheting this blanket today. I hadn't crocheted in about 2 years. This blanket suits me just fine since I don't really have to learn anything or follow a pattern. Plus I am using up all sorts of extra yarn bits. I am not sure if I can bring myself to use that many colours though. We'll see.

I have got to get cracking on a few things but in the meanwhile...I was wondering if maybe I used my dayplanner and scheduled projects in. Maybe that way I would see things through? Now if only I can find the blasted thing! Can you tell I am not big on schedules?

I recently started going back to the gym and that is seriously cut into my knitting time. However, the chick with the baby
and the double chin? That's me. How weird do you think it
would be to knit while on a stationary bike? Yeah. That's what I thought.

If I could just carry the little one around with me - doncha think he distracts from the double chin?

In other news: I watched Hard Candy today. I loved it. I laughed aloud - though it is dark and controversial. The subject matter may be sensitive for some. Sheesh I sound like a disclaimer. Really though. I almost reccommend it. But then, I don't know what kind of movies you like!

Quiz Show

We had a family dinner tonight for our Aunt and Uncles 34th Anniversary.
My cousin made a delectable turkey - stuffed with apples and garlic - YUM. Her gravy was really quite fantastic and I am not much of a potato person.

After dinner and dessert we played Celebrity Taboo and gave up on that for Trivial Pursuit.
TP is a game better played when there are less people and no small babies around. It is too hard to drag your focus away from the cooing, laughing, drooling bundle of joy to answer trivial questions!

For the first time ever I used our camera to film video. Here you can see Kai is riveted to his Great Uncle who has been quacking like a duck. GU is having a hard time answering our team question as he keeps turning to talk to Kai. Kai is just waiting ready to laugh, intently watching every move on GU's face.

Our question was: What has been called Barndoors, Crockery, Ivories and Snappers?
Listen to our intense discussion in all its ridiculousness!



If you think you have the answer post a comment. 1st right answer wins a knitting prize. This is the honours system - please don't google the answer!
PS. We went with my answer and I was right.

Prize: Your choice of *Handpainted Yarn *Bamboo Needles *Silk Blend Stash Yarn
Hmmmm...Maybe there should be a runner up prize. What do you think?

First Snowfall!


I love snow. I really, really love the 1st snowfall.
It was however, Grey's Anatomy night which meant I did NOT go for a walk in the snow at night. This is usually a tradition for me, but it did also rain last night. So I am thinking it wasn't really the 1st snow I go walking in.


It made work fun too. Our power went out. Mercifully for only about 15 minutes. Picture 17 excited children barely contained while playing inside (because why would parents send children to school with coats or boots at the end of November? they wouldn't) and then...the power goes out. It was 5:10 - less than an hr from GA (PANIC!) and extremely dark out already.

So we had a superfast cleanup and then gathered everyone's belongings while our emergency lights were lasting. Once that was accomplished we gathered together and one of the older children began to read aloud to the group. Most of the children's parents began arriving just before power was restored.

Honestly, I think it was fun and kind of cozy. The 1st 5 minutes were a little chaotic but after that there was something quite nice about being gathered by the light of the halogen (gone the day of candle - until the emergency lights give out that is) and reading Hans Christian Andersen.

Power failures were my favourite when I was a child. I actually prefer candlelight - doesn't everyone and everything look just that much nicer? Not to mention cleaner! It is just not a good thing when you depend on your electricity for heat and phone - like we do at work.

We are supposed to get more snow and temperatures up to -14 in the next few days and I am looking forward to that walk!

Calendar Call




I finally got around to this post! Nearly the end of the month...but here it is.
2 work and one home calendar. November is not too shabby this time around. Some years are really bad. Of course March this year had the most stunning picture in the Real Estate Calendar. A tent pitched in the middle of this serene, mossy, green, tree filled forest clearing in the rain. Incredibly tranquil.

I went to see The Fountain tonight. Visually one of the most stunning films I have ever seen. Images of breath taking beauty. Incredible.

Shock and Awe

Thank goodness for this decision. I cannot possibly imagine a more despicable subject matter (or individual really) to air on national television. Fictionalized drama is one thing but Ron Goldman & Nicole Brown deserve some dignity and respect since they are never going to see any justice in this world. This man should not be allowed to profit from their deaths, either financially or socially (being in the limelight again).

And that is where I had better stop. The OJ case makes me crazy. Furious and crazy. Rhyming is an important tool when learning language, it is not something to base life-altering decisions on!

Ok. This is where I'll really stop.

Some of you have wondered how SSGFS managed the other post. Well, in FOX tradition, here are his secrets:

He is knit in a 10 row alternating series of K2 P2.
His pattern is from Knitting Vintage Socks.
His picture was upside down.

When all else fails...

fall back on a game!
I read about this @ Hell & High Water.

Here are the contents of my purse - in no particular order (which is just like my purse exactly!)

* Wallet (this is actually surprising - usually I can't find it)
* Bottle of water
* Relora
* Handcreme
* Sunglasses (really funny considering our weather lately!)
* Digital Camera
* Paystub
* Receipt from Knit & Stitch
* 2 broken bamboo dpn's
* 1 beaded stitchmarker
* 3 pens
* 1 pencil
* Wite-out Tape
* 1 paperclip
* Empty package of gum
* 1 Sour Chiclet
* 1 Rum Butter Lifesaver
* 1 Krinos Ouzo candy
* Sterling Silver Turqouise ring
* Sterling Silver Raven Earrings (so that's where they were!!)
* Nail file
* 2 bottles of nail polish
* Mascara
* Eyeshadow
* Tinted lip Juice
* Secret Invisible
* 2 tampons
* CG loose powder
* Burt's Bees:
Marshmallow Vanishing Creme
Milk & Honey Body Lotion
Blushing Creme
Lip Balm
Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme x 2
* $3.05 in loose change

Judging by the contents of my purse you would think 1) I wear makeup 2) I do my nails 3) I have a serious moisturizing issue

Well...1 out of 3 ain't bad!
I do apply a lot of moisturizer to my hands - mainly my cuticles. I did so even before I began to knit regularly.

My nails are so short it is silly to have either nail polish or a nail file in my bag - I am thinking they are leftover from a wedding or similar event.

I keep making it a goal to wear more makeup but I couldn't tell you the last time I put it on before work. When I do wear makeup I put it on in the car (gasp!) so that is why it is in my purse.

What's in your bag/purse?

Oh- I also love Burt's Bees!

The Rain Still Falls

Some of us don't mind.

Then again, we don't need to boil water or see by candlelight.

I have been knitting up a storm (no pun intended - sorry about that) on my Severus Snape Gentleman's Socks. I will post a pic tomrrow. I am really afraid that the sock bug has taken a firm grip on me. What will become of me? What of my other projects?

Speaking of other projects - while searching for inspiration I stumbled upon this site: GarnStudio
If you haven't been there you should really check it out. There are oodles of free patterns of all kinds. Not a few of them are fabulous. (Is it me or is that an odd sentence? Ah well, I'm gonna leave it.)

The Great Inland Sea?


Another rainfall warning has been issued for Howe Sound. Hey - I am not complaining, remember I love the rain! And at least there was no tsunami in the end.

We've had a few flickers here and the power has gone out in our Industrial Park where my sister is working/was working. Ahhhh. A perfect day to stay home - which I did!

Yesterday I went to the fabulous LYS and we bought this for Luc's meet the family kimono set.



















I haven't been able to get a pic of him awake in his kimono - so here he is.I'd better make him a hat to match don't you think?

Please help


One of my blogging friends alerted me to this woman's need.
I know making a square for a blanket does not feel like a lot but perhaps we can make a small difference by letting Jenn know she is cared for.

Please go here to read Jenn's story. You will also find the details about the blanket there.

Thank you.

Bit of knitting news & Another Meme

Little knitting news: The Kimono Jacket fits perfectly! I am so happy. Picture tomorrow.

ALSO: Luc's Mom asked me to knit a kimono jacket in white for when he meets his extended family next month. We are going tomorrow to find some luxury yarn at my favourite yarn shop

A Stolen Meme

1. Flip to page 18, paragraph 4 in the book closest to you right now, what does it say?

Welsh Heels: etc. etc. It's a pretty long paragraph!
It is Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks

2. If you stretch out your left arm - as far as possible, what are you touching?

The wall.

3. What’s the last program you watched on tv?

Oprah - how to interpret baby cries.

4. Without looking, guess what time it is.

9:25 pm.

(It's actually 9:33)

5. Except the computer, what can you hear right now?

Nothing at all and it is bliss!

6. When was the last time you were outside and what did you do?

About 45 min. ago. I cleaned out the trunk in my car and set the battery up on a trickle charger (it's been off the road long enough to be totally dead)

7. What are you wearing?

Jeans and the comfiest burgundy long sleeve v-neck shirt.

8. What did you dream last night.

Honestly I can't remember which is odd for me - usually I recall in technicolor...

9. When was the last time you laughed?

I laugh all the time - so it's hard to keep track.

10. What’s on the walls, in the room you’re in right now?

Tonnes of little blue and white Dutch items - my Mom loves the Dutch kitsch.

11. Have you seen anything strange lately?

Sure have. Why do you ask?
Tonight at Starbucks the oddest young guy with cornrows (looking all Federline) came in all dozy and confused and stopped to admire my friends baby. He was pretty out of place for this Starbucks and I was really surprised how into the baby he was.

13. What’s the last film you saw?

Borat!

14. If you became a multimillionaire, what would you do with the money?

Set up my Mom and my siblings with great homes and some savings. Take my entire family on a trip somewhere (which would be a logistical nightmare but I am stubborn.) Head back to school OR maybe open a book/yarn shop - with great coffee. Oooh both!

15. Tell us something about yourself that most people don’t know.

I had imaginary friends until I was at least 12.


16. If you could change ONE THING in this world, without regarding politics or bad guilt - what would it be?

Children woud be safe the world over.

17. Do you like dancing?

I LOVE dancing.

18. George Bush?

No thank you.

19. What do you want your children’s names to be, girl/boy?

Ok. My kid would hate me but I love Leia. A son would definitely be named for my Grandfather, Kenneth. Maybe Kenneth Ian, or Ian Kenneth.

20. Would you ever consider living abroad?

Yes - but only as a dream. My family is too important, I couldn't stand to be so far away from them.

21. Who should do this meme?

Anyone who wants to.

Anniversary


It's my cousin's 5th Wedding Anniversary today - Kai's parents.

Look at him! What a dolly.

My Aunt & Uncle had a dinner for them and then had most of their friends over for dessert.

Too funny. My cousin is about 6 years younger than me and I used to babysit some of her friends - well they were all there with their children and their babies. Yep. More babies - I am telling you, if I believed in signs...

Here are my niece and another little one dressing up as 'costumes'.


I got a gift!


B-Nessa's husband, Aaron
got me Touring with the Angel.
The DM DVD of the concert series!!
I am so excited. I know what I am knitting to tomorrow.

Kira was so happy I was home she just had to get in the picture. Belly rub anyone?

Knitting, Yarn & A New Look

I am still playing around with things but what do you think? I was getting a little tired of the colourless template. This began as an attempt to add a picture to my banner - look where it ended!

Finally some fibre related content:

Here you see some of my latest Sock Yarn installments from the Spunky Eclectic Sock Club.




Luc's Kimono top is ready and being blocked as I write. Tomorrow should see it seamed, beribboned and wrapped for delivery.

Perhaps I will even persuade him to model it for us!

Sexy Back


This is one of the funniest things I have seen in a long, long time. I hadn't noticed how often they dance around on The Office.

Speaking of funny...I went to see
Borat tonight. I was laughing so much I was crying. But there were a lot of times where I was covering my face. Some things I couldn't believe I was seeing and some things I did NOT want to see. That man has no limits! How he can not break character with some of the responses he gets? How he has the audacity to ask some of those questions? It is staggering.

I know I promised a knitting post but...I didn't knit once today! It is awful. I did however, work, have a meeting, do laundry, walk the dog, nap, workout @ the gym, see a movie, pick up my sister, read blogs, comment and then post here. So...better luck tomorrow?

The Power of Community

I have been blogging for just under one year and I am constantly amazed at the beautiful people online who provide community for one another.




You have met Luc already. You didn't know that his parents had great difficulty conceiving. With medical assistance his parents have a healthy and happy 2 yr old girl as well as Luc.

As someone who dreams of having her own children I would like to share this with you. I have been reading
Starfish's blogs and feel a strong connection to her. In her honour I share this excerpt with you that she posted from another blog (the title will link you directly to the original post at The Stirrup Queen's site):

Please note: This is an excerpt from another blog - it is not me speaking! I apologize for any confusion.

'For anyone who has ever had a miscarriage, struggled with pregnancy, and all things infertile...there is a movement upon us that you might want to join. It's rather simple actually: a discreet ribbon on your right wrist to signal to others that they are not alone in their struggles.

As someone who has had 5 m/c but am currently 5 months pregnant (YEAH), I wonder who looks at my big belly with sadness because they are in the month-to-month struggle. I mentioned to a friend that I wished there was some secret nod or international sign as if to say, this belly was hardwon. Well, she posted this quandary on her blog (
http://www.stirrup-queens.blogspot.com/) and the response has been quite overwhelming...and a movement has been born!

The pomegranate-colored thread holds a two-fold purpose: to identify and create community between those experiencing infertility as well as create a starting point for a conversation. Women pregnant through any means, natural or A.R.T., families created through adoption or surrogacy, or couples trying to conceive during infertility or secondary infertility can wear the thread, identifying themselves to others in this silent community. At the same time, the string serves as a gateway to conversations about infertility when people inquire about its purpose. These conversations are imperative if we are ever to remove the social stigma attached to infertility.Tie on the thread because you’re not alone. Wear to make aware. Join us in starting this conversation about infertility by purchasingthis pomegranate-coloured thread (#814 by DMC) at any craft, knitting, or variety store such as Walmart or Target. Tie it on your right wrist. Notice it on others. Just thought I would pass the word along!'
Quote from: Stirrup Queens (blogspot) - September 2006

If you would like to do something you can post a link to the Pomegranate Bracelet on your blog.

* I promise, I promise to have some knitting pics up tomorrow night. I really have been knitting!

If you have a young person you like to read to, try this book: Ruby Lu, Brave & True

It is laugh out loud funny, it's sweet, you'll learn some Mandarin and...the girl's father KNITS! Knits fabulous things like magic capes for all the children in their Seattle neighbourhood.

We talked (Out of School Care Group) about people we know that knit and the list was quite long. At the end of our chat one of the boys said "And Michelle. We all know you! We can't forget your knitting." The little charmer.

Heartbreakingly Cute


At the moment I am working on a blue HC Kimono of Mason Dixon fame.
It is such a fast and easy knit. Its fun that it is knit
all in one piece too - though I do have to say I am
not such a fan of seams, but who is?

Overheard at work:

"You should have the ugly boyfriend whose also kind of mean 'cause you're bossy most of the time."
4 yr old girl

"I have 9 dice. How's that for a reasonable amount?"
4 yr old boy

"Is tomorrow Halloween? (asked for the billionth time IN A ROW on Monday, Oct. 30th) Oh! I am going to be so surprised!!"
5 yr old boy -- I know, kinda sad

"Is this horse a boy or a girl? (a pink My Little Pony) Oh. I know how to tell. Nope. No penis. It's a girl. What about this one? (checks 7 MLPonies) No penises at all. They are all girls. (looks over to where a group of boys are building with blocks) Well there are a lot of penises on the carpet over there."
3 yr old girl

"I had a bad day at Kindergarten. I thought I was havin' a good day 'til the Prince came and told me I wasn't."
5 yr old boy who was spoken to by the Principal

After being told that we only call people by their own names at Preschool:
"I'm just gonna think to myself that that guy is a LOSER."
3 yr old boy

When told Inspectors were coming to see us & our building we were asked:
"What if he's cute?" Giggling with hands over mouth and eyes rolling
5 yr old boy
YEP! Same kid asking about Halloween

Playground or Swimming Hole?

Here are the pics of our playground yesterday.


Luckily the rain has tapered off somewhat. We even saw the sun a few times - which made my co-workers happy!

The water has receded from
beneath the swings a little -
they still can't be used.
Maybe tomorrow.

Kira was wearing a sweater to keep her belly dry - she gets chilled when her tummy is wet. The children were a little worried that she wasn't protected from the rain enough. One girl ran inside and came back with this for her:


Doesn't she look thrilled?!

She won't admit it but she
was drier than usual when
we got inside.

Watery Deep

I am one of those people. The kind that loves the rain.

We have had an unseasonably (and I think unreasonably) sunny year. I'm talking sun from April to October. That is too much. I was disconcerted. I mean, I was waking up and saying in a morose tone: "Imagine. It's sunny. Again." It was ruining my day to wake up to the sun! What is that about? I think it is because I was born in Prince Rupert - and while we moved when I was 10 months old, I was already programmed for the rain. 100" is the annual rainfall average!



{We inherited this pic from my Nana. You can see she sketched in a border around me - and labelled me. She wasn't the classiest of artists but she loved me. }




Well, we have been getting some rain around here! Finally. But let me tell you. Instead of steady rain - which would be normal for our coast - we are getting torrents of rain. Torrents.


There has already been flooding since Friday. Not here yet - but check out these pictures from this afternoon.



This is about 4 blocks from our house. It is the spot at the dyke where they measure the level of the water. On a typical day you would have to get out and walk right up to the edge, lean over and then you would see some water. There is a measuring line that goes up to about 10-12 ft and right now, right now you can't even see that measuring line. That is a lot of water.


Tonight they have two municipal workers on flood watch. They are leaning over that rail with their flashlights on the water. Not too sure what they are accomplishing doing that all night. But hey, it's overtime I'm sure!

Our playground at work is a water park. Pics of that tomorrow.

What's in a name?

Sorry - Blogger is not uploading photo's AGAIN.

There seems to be a profusion of babies everywhere I go. Co-workers having babies, friends having babies, relatives having babies, acquaintances and parents of children in our daycare & preschool having babies. Whew. That is a lot of babies. For perspective I know 7 people who are pregnant at the moment, 4 people who just had babies and at work 5 of our families have new babies.

So let me tell you, there have been a lot of names flying around. Naming a child. What a responsibility. Names carry so much weight. They influence opinion before you are even introduced.

Case in point - one family was seriously considering Kiki Snow for their new daughter. What sort of career options are open to a girl named Kiki Snow? In the end, after 9 days of having no name, they called her Grace Deni. Close call little one.

Here is a partial list of the babies recently named:
Frost (m)
Samia (f)
Cameron (f)
Strykker (m)

How difficult for people naming their babies to always be confronted by the opinion of others. 'Cause we have opinions! Even if they aren't voiced, they may be betrayed by a long pause, a flinch, a stifled smile. How awful for a new parent.

But I have to say this, we were relieved the baby's name was Samia, we thought she was called Samuel. Yipes. And do you really want to be encouraging domestic violence? (Strykker)

Oh. We have a parents group that meets each Friday for breakfast and then we have workshops/presentations for our Preschool families. At this weeks, Strykker was there with his mother. When the presenter heard the baby's name she said - "I have cousin named Strykker. Our family thought his parents were on drugs. I mean what kind of a name is that? I have never heard anyone else with that name before. Weird."

Seriously. To her face. Before a group of parents and professionals.

The Mom laughed it off after the lady gave a half-*ssed apology. But this is my point. It must be very difficult to name your baby. I think you must just have to be sure for yourself and forget everyone else, because there are going to be reactions, and uncouth people who will tell you publicly what they think of your choice.

Incidentally, when I was naming Kira, I was SURE I made the name up.

For those of you who have asked the latest dishclothes were knit using Amazon DK 100% mercerized cotton. It comes in some pretty fabulous colours. At my LYS I paid $3.49 per 50g ball - not too sure if that is a good price, but there it is.

Nearly Blogless

Where have I been? Nowhere. What have I been doing? Nothing really. Doesn't that make for interesting blog reading?! LOL

Really, I can't think why I haven't been able to blog lately. I have barely even been reading other blogs. Today I made up for that - for the reading at least. I discovered some great things that have been happening while I was preoccupied with the minutiae of my daily life. One of which, though I am
too late to officially join I will participate in nonetheless. I think if might be good for me.

While I was away Fall, and by Fall I mean Winter arrived. Ummm -6? Yep those Kureyon mitts have been used!


This is the view from my sisters work:




You can sort of see some Fall colours on the mountains. But really, it was quite warm here until it was freezing, so there was not a lot of colouration here this year. The leaves changed and promptly fell off the trees. Maybe next year.

I finished one washcloth and am nearly done another. I have barely even been knitting - what is going on? I am going to have to get myself in order here!


Here is a pic of something Kira has been up to.

We used to find these constellations of kibbles on our carpet all the time - ESPECIALLY after we vaccuumed! This is the first time she has left one on the hardwood. Ahhh. Life returns to normal.
