Let's start out the week with an excellent piece of good news: Véronik Avery, one of my favorite designers, has a book coming out this fall. When I say that I am going straight to Amazon to pre-order Knitting Classic Style: 35 Modern Designs Inspired by Fashion's Archives, I am not kidding. The book is scheduled for release this fall.
As my elegant grandmother would have said, I am about as happy as a pig in shit.
The Indifferent Outfielder
Saturday was opening day for my oldest kid's Little League. Here, the indifferent outfielder ("was I supposed to chase after that?") gets ready to bat.
There was, however, an outfielder more apathetic than my kid:
Tomorrow, the poor kid gets dental surgery to remove a baby tooth that never came in. The orthodontist said that in 30 years of practicing, he'd only seen 2 other cases like this one. Batten down the hatches and Atavan for everyone! (especially me)
Sunday, I met up with Joe, Marilyn, Marilyn's bad-ass granddaughter Liz,
and blogless crochet goddess Kathy for brunch in Stockton, NJ. Much fun was had.
Sadly, I had to crop Kathy out of that photo because my poor photographic skills could not adequately capture her beauty.
Joe was working on a kick-ass rendition of the Boteh Scarf, featured in this month's Interweave Crochet and designed by Kathy.
Just for M-H
At least the twins' preschool is part of the global community. Last week was devoted to studying countries around the world. Friday, in particular, introduced our Aussie friends.
However, I do not believe the picky eaters consumed any Vegamite. G'day.
