I was in the check-out lane yesterday and took a quick call from SK. I told Tuck that I thought Daddy was on a Mom's Day Gift Mission. The clerk then told me that "all those gifts don't mean squat in the end." No kidding, but really? Does anything matter in the end?
I don't care what she said, I am having a lovely Mother's Day. My favorite one happened a couple years ago. SK took Gus to visit his mom & left the house to me. God it was perfect. But today is coming in close second. I got to sleep in. My MIL came over to watch the boys so SK & I could also celebrate our anniversary. Hummus, yum. And we're dropping the boys off at a friend's house so we can see the new Star Trek movie. I haven't gotten this much Boy-Free time since I was in the hospital having Tuck. That's a pretty good Mother's Day if you ask me.
My last post, I was wondering if I could finish an 18 month sweater in a week. Well, I didn't. I finished a 24 month sweater in three days. I started Manda Ruth almost immediately after I purchased the pattern. I figured I had enough Kraemer's Tatamy Tweed Worsted in Merlot, but I figured for the smaller size. Which means I ran out during the hood. I tried everything to come up with an option to use only what I had. All of the collars looked silly because of the seed stitch and I bought the pattern because of the hood. I had to do it! I tracked down another ball from Knitter's Mercantile & finished it before I hopped on the plane.
