Busy week.  My friend Maureen is coming on Wednesday for Ella’s photo shoot.  I need to get the house tidied up because she might want some inside shoots too.  I also need to get our Lenten garden set up, I’m so far behind this year.  I also need to snag the truck one of these days to run out to the butcher shop for a smoked ham.  Good news, my elbow is feeling so much better.  Still a bit sore, but I can knit again and I’m not afraid to pick up anything (within reason).  Sure wish I knew what I did -so I can not do it again!

Monday:

Stuff?

I keep forgetting that my new ‘Yarn Along’ day is Tuesdays.  Not that I have anything to share for Crafting On this week.  Usually a weekend in Toronto provides lots of knitting, but somehow I hurt my arm before we left for the city.  I messed up the tendons in my right arm (knitting arm).  Luckily it’s feeling much better today.  I still have to be careful stretching, but at least I can pick up most things without fear of dropping them/stabbing pain.

So instead, here’s some pictures to share.

So little.

Ah, back in the bonnet-wearing days.

Ella’s first hair cut and her ‘cheese’ face.

Home again from Toronto.  Boy, I sure wish I had a magic want that could just get us back home.  It always seems such a long drive coming home (4 hours plus stops).  We had a good time and I’ve got pictures to share, but they are on my camera still.

sandwiches

chicken and dumplings

Thursday:

Busy last week getting everything back to normal after being in Toronto/Scarborough.  Now we have to go back again this weekend.  We need to hit Auntie B’s office to deliver Ella’s Girl Guide cookies.  Wasn’t planning on a trip down so quickly.  Oh well, maybe we’ll get a chance to hit up some of the fabric stores downtown to search for linen for my new medieval garb.

Today is the last day of skating, so our weeks will be a lot less busy.  Swimming started last week.  Ella loves swimming, she’s in swim kids 5.  Not bad for just starting lessons last year.

Monday:

grilled cheese

spaghetti

Tuesday:

pizza

roast pork

Wednesday:

beef noodle

Thursday:

stew

More great ideas at I’m an Organizing Junkie:

After 6 years of hosting Yarn Along, Ginny has decided to stop.  I guess we’ll have to join up with Nicole at Frontier Dreams for Keep Calm Craft On Tuesdays.

We had such a great time in Toronto I actually didn’t get a lot of knitting done (Grandma’s ‘new’ car is awkward for knitting).

Worked a bit on my poncho.  I wish the Knit Picks Wool of the Andes were a little softer.  At least I used the really soft Galileo for the neck -I’m not sure I could wear it otherwise.

I’ve also got my socks started.  The unfortunate part is I have to do them one sock at a time.

I also did some negative knitting:

I finally had to admit that the sweater for Belinda just wasn’t going to work.  I really don’t know what the designer was smoking when she decided you could knit a sweater at  sport gauge with fingering sized yarn.  It was so fine, nearly shawl-type fine!  It was also going to need blocked every time it got washed and my sister just isn’t that kind of housekeeper.  Belinda picked out a new colour in the Brava Sport yarn.  It’s a new colour so we have to wait for it to be released.

So, what did I do this weekend instead of knit?

Comic con of course!  Ella is Nurse Joy from Pokemon.  She takes care of any injured Pokemon.  Ella looked so good that she got stopped a number of times to take pictures and she received lots of compliments.

The convention centre is always so hot I decided to wear my hair up.  I really should have taken a picture because it looked pretty cool.  I wore my Steampunk outfit again -we were very under-represented this time.

Look who we found!  Ella was so pleased because the father in line after us asked Ella to stay in the picture with his daughters.  Ella could barely contain herself.

One tuckered out girl!  We like to go Sunday morning for the show.  We’re usually done by the time everyone else turns up.

I don’t have any real projects to show you guys this week for Yarn Along.  I have a couple ‘to-go’ projects bagged up and ready for the weekend.

Working on a pair of knee socks for me.  They will have snowflake patterns up the sides.

I’ve also got everything ready for a cool poncho that I’ve wanted to work on for a while now.  I’ve knitted a number of things by Mary Gildersleeve before and I love her work.

I’m sure I’ll have lots to show you next week.

We’re back in the deep freeze again.  Temperatures are about -20 C with the wind chill (since Thursday!).  Colin has some cleaning jobs coming up but needs the weather to warm up some first.

Look what was wandering around the house yesterday:
