My Baby is Growing Up! and I'm Not sure I'm Ready!
A few evenings later he drove on the road, from our house to the local Starbucks. It is a good thing that DH has nerves of steel. He sat in the front with DS. I sat in the back. I think that sitting in the back seat is a really bad thing because I have NO control of what happens in the front! My nerves were shot! The boy did really well for his first time on the road, only 1 sort of close call but nothing serious and DH fixed the problem. But in defense of the boy it was dark out AND his first time on the road with other traffic. I think it will take a few more times out before I feel a bit more comfortable with the whole idea of my baby driving! He is planning on taking driving lesson from a professional too!.
Saturday evening we (DH and I), went to visit MIL. We took her out to dinner for her birthday. It was a lovely evening.
This year DD's 15th birthday landed on Easter Sunday, so we celebrated BOTH. We went to my Dad's for dinner. It was great! Dinner was to die for and the company was good.
Della and I went to our LYS in Ancaster. It was the first time I had been there. It was a great place. The yarn that they have was amazing. I have not seen that much sock yarn in one store before. I joined the World Yarn Swap again on Ravelry. I got few thing 'Canadian' from there. I hope my Finnish girl likes what I got for her!
On Tuesday Mar. 26 I finished DH's Gentlemans socks. They seemed to take a bit longer than usual but then I don't knit size 11 that often. I am happy with how they turned out. I like the colours and pattern together. They don't to conflict with each other.
I started the Charade socks. I REALLY like this pattern. It looks really cool and is very easy to memorize. I am using Arequipa yarn that is made with alpaca. Man is it soft! I love the colourway. I wasn't sure when I bought the yarn if I would like it our not, but I do. It has browns in it and some subtle pinks and purples. The pattern is a simple enough one but looks a little more sophisticated than a plain stockinette sock.
