Pictures say a thousand words.

Ch-ch-ch-check it ouuuuuut! TWO IN ONE WEEK!

I figured that I really need to try and keep this thing going. It’s sad to look at my archive list and see it jump from JULY 2008 to FEBRUARY 2009! While nothing is going on right. this. second! We still have some catching up to do!!

Here are some more pictures from Greece:

Santorini. Those windmills are amazing!

Santorini. The Caldera.

Santorini must have been the prettiest island, since I seem to have the most pictures from there ;)


I’ll admit, not much knitting was done in Greece. On the beach there was too much sand and sunscreen for my taste and on the boat, well…for a girl who spent the first day at sea hurling her digested lunch over the side of the ship, knitting wasn’t really a recommended activity. It kinda had that reading-in-the-car effect. Times 10.

That little scrap of knitting in the picture grew up to be the right front of my Central Park Hoodie. You remember CPH, no? Oh, yeah, maybe not since I started it back in September of *2007*!! Yeah, I don’t blame you for forgetting. What can I say? I’m an easily distracted knitter with a currently low knitting mojo. Last year the main distraction was Christmas and baby knitting. This year, so far, it’s been a little bit of Christmas and a lot of holy-fuck-it’s-cold! knitting.

Malabrigo Hat

Malabrigo Mittens

These were both made with 2 hanks of Malabrigo Worsted in Applewood. There is also a Clapotis scarf to match, but I apparently never took a picture of it. It came out a little short for my taste (14 straight sections), but functionally, it does the job. Plus, I’m really impressed that I got the whole set out of just 2 hanks! WOOT! The hat is a combination of the kittyville hat and my bananahead baby beanie. The mittens I made up on the fly. They mostly came out alright, but if I ever knit another pair, I would make a few changes, for sure.

Between those three and another clapotis scarf for a friend (24 straight sections. PERFECT!), CPH has seen little action. However, she has not been forgotten. All the pieces have been knit and are ready to be sewn up (except for the right front, which WAS finished until I realized I’d f’ed it up and now I have to reknit the armhole. no biggie). I am optimistic that it will be done for next fall ;)

More random pics! These are from a wedding Adam and I went to in East Hampton:

Yes we belong in the Hamptons. Why do you ask?

Adam and Gianmaria. Don’t ask. I have no idea.

These are from when Adam, the boys and I went to the Big Apple Circus:

I swear they had a better time than they seem to have had from this picture.*

Adam IN the circus!

Adam got picked to be IN the circus. They selected a member of the audience to compete in a dance contest with “grandma” and Adam was chosen! HE ROCKED IT!! LOL. He had to do the Robot (pictured), Lord of the Dance, and Disco! He was kick-ass! The audience loved him!! For his grand efforts, he was the proud winner of a box of popcorn (which Elias stole and housed immediately.) Hee!

Lastly, in the name of Valentine’s Day, I leave you with this:

Butterfly Sex.

Have a good one! :-P

ps – Happy Anniversary to my Momma! She and my dad would have been married 44 years today. (or 45? 43? Whichever. I think it’s 44.)

*Well, Emile *appeared* to enjoy it. He was smiling and on the edge of his seat for a good portion of it, especially when the train came out and all of the doggies jumped out of it. However, if you ask Emile if he liked the circus, he will say, “NNNO! It’s too FUNNY!”

    I have a HUGE fear of being picked out of the crowd every time I go to the circus. My sisters company owns the property where Cirque du Soleil used to set up camp in NoVA and we’d get to go to the VIP premiere. Each time she’d taunt me with threats that she had pre-arranged my capture by the clowns. Ughh. Clowns. Those kids are seriously adorable.
