Little man was a bit more serious about it; though he is a seasoned Tee Ball veteran now so that is to be expected.
Are you having a good time?
"Mom, I'm watching the game." Oh, sorry. How about you little miss, are you having fun?
Here's a few more photos from the game.
That's right folks, it was all work and no play.
Wait a minute, there's a smile, sort of... :) Well he was happy anyway!
And now for a little something on the side, knitting content!
Firstly, I would like you to meet Norman.
Norman is a Slug's Slug. He enjoys spending a lot of time outdoors, base jumping, rock climbing, and has been to every amusement park in the Continental US save for one and he has his tickets booked for his trip later this Summer. Norman is also quite the ladies man; it doesn't get any smoother than Norman. Plus, he can cook! Just not with salt ;)
Little man has been asking for a slug for over a year now and he even picked out the yarn he wanted his slug to be knit out of. I'm not sure why it took me so long to make him. Perhaps it was because I thought it would take longer than it did. Either way, there will be more slugs in the future including a "Darth Slug". We can't leave Vader out of the mix...
I would also like you to meet Violet. Violet currently resides in the Principal's office at the minions' school. Said Principal was having a really bad week a little while ago and we all know that there is no better way to brighten one's day than with a saucy Slug.
Violet is also a bit of an adventurer, but prefers to explore hidden ruins and Medieval Castles. Though, a nice relaxing stroll on the beach hits the spot from time to time. She is also the place to go when you need a good batch of Snickerdoodles. Just saying. They're awesome!
Also off the needles is the pair of replacement socks for little miss. These were knit out of Fresh From the Cauldron's Silk Sock in the Elizabeth I colorway. I love dipping into my vintage stash :)
Earlier this year I knit up a new pattern for Jen's Princess Bride Club. The pattern is rather lost in the variegated colorway but it really knit up into a comfortable pair of mitts so I'll have to do one in a solid to show off the textured pattern a bit better.
Now that my package has been sent and received, I can share with you two handknit projects that I mailed out to Jen for her Winter Package. Yes it's Spring. No it doesn't matter. This is also a new pattern that will be included in her upcoming Rainbow Barf Club in early 2012. I rather like the simplicity.
And these are a pair of mitts out of handspun - Fat Cat Knits Merino in the Majestic Colorway. I happened to score myself the last braid in that particular colorway after-the-fact and I have visions of a lacy baktus floating in my head :)
Lastly, for the time being, I have a few more Inspired-by-Dr-Who Colorways to share. This is the second shipment's offerings: Yarn in #10
And the second set of companions: Captain Jack, Sarah Jane, Mickey, Jackie Tyler (lt to rt)
And this is #11 which is the yarn portion of the 3rd shipment.
I have a few more projects off the needles but needs to be blocked and almost off the needles so there will be more fiber-y goodness and minion-y goodness soon. I can't believe there is only something like 23 days or so left of school for the year!
