*Whew* What a weekend. As I get more and more run down things get harder and harder to manage. After I finish this doozy of a blog entry I’m going to go back to doing nothing but reading for a few days, I think. I’ve overdone it again.
Yesterday was the monthly knitting group meeting in Salisbury and it was also a surprise baby shower for my fellow American expat, Emily. (She’s from Ohio, originally.) Libby, Stephanie and I arranged games and we brought gifts. Much fun was had by all but I know I didn’t get much knitting done.
That may be because I was knitting a dress in laceweight yarn. I’m going to keep pointing out the insanity of this for awhile. Somehow it isn’t making me feel crazy (it’s actually heavy laceweight) but I’m pretty sure it should.
I spent the evening before prepping the flowers. I haven’t made up a bouquet since my wedding. I’d forgotten how fun yet time consuming it is.
Also time consuming? The secret knitting. A tiny baby sweater was my gift. This little thing took me a month and four seasons of Gilmore Girls to complete. I wouldn’t say it was a difficult pattern, just quite complex. (Ravelry link.)
And now, a parade of pictures:
The gift table. We played the baby picture game as well.
The guest of honor and the cutest pregnant woman ever, Emily.
A baby bank from Sharon. (That’s Alice smiling in the background.)
The secret knitting makes it’s appearance.
Alice’s adorable little owls vest.
Libby‘s baby tag blanket.
Stephanie’s plethora of gifts.
There you go, a brilliant afternoon. Now to go recover for a day or three.
