Come sit next to me you fine fellow!

Apologies for not updating the contest yesterady! The pattern for Hat Attack was released at 930am EST, so I had to get going on that right away. It's a super fun, super fly pattern with cables representing the binary numbers 0-15. My brother dubbed it "Nerd Bling". I finished mine up this morning in a pretty heathered pink yarn- I like to think of it as a strawberry milkshake hat. And while this one is going off to my target in Arkansas tomorrow morning I will certainly be making at least one more hat from this pattern for my own use (I hope I get to work on at least one more for the game, but only time will tell!). Here's the one I made this weekend.




Anyway, Robert and the kids went to get our CSA and Kenny and Giselle in the Bronx and I had some quiet knitting time, which was fabulous. They all turned up around lunch time, and I started in on the fingerless gloves I'm making for Kenny. I'd been waiting for him to actually be here to work on them since I couldn't find a suitable pattern and am making one up, which requires lots of trying on. Once the kids were settled down for nap/quiet time Kenn and Giselle started getting that hopefully, faraway look in their eyes, and discussing hunger and walks. Clearly, a trip to Gracie's Ravioli for some of their kick-ass panini was in order! And here's the first of Kenny's mitts. It looks a lot cooler on, I swear!



Liel was much friendlier with her aunt and uncle this visit, and even asked to sit on Kenny's lap during story time.



This morning both kids woke up with colds, and we don't have any particular plans. But good news! My mom reports that the sweater fits her and she loves it! *Phew*

indeed, my dear jill, i'm afraid you got the wrong brother. it was young mc who went to "bust a move," not tone loc, who _loced after dark_, perhaps smoking some "chiba chiba" before meeting up with some young filly for the "wild thing."
