To cap off this week, I thought I'd share a couple random things that have been going on here lately. Topher is more into dancing than ever and really wouldn't stop last night, so I took a video:
I love to watch him dance. He is just so free and happy and it's as if even he doesn't know which direction his body will move next.
Next, since I'm absolutely addicted to knitting, here are a couple more projects I completed this week:
First, a scarf for my purple-is-my-favorite-color friend. This was my first time adding fringe. It was a little trickier than the tutorials suggested. At least for me.
Last but not least is a project that was born from a conversation that went a little something like this:
Me: Hey I knit now, do you want anything?
My sister: Sure, I'll take a yellow hat
Me: That's an odd request
TJ: You own a yellow hat
Me: Oh yeah, I guess it's not that weird
This hat was my first attempt at a LOT of things. My first attempt at piecing together a few different patterns and improvising the rest (ie making up my own pattern). My first attempt at incorporating more than one color. My first attempt at an adult-sized hat. My first attempt at adding a little embellishment. Basically, it was doomed from the start. I started it yesterday and finished it this morning kind of holding my breath the whole time. And yet...I dare to say it's almost wearable. So without further adieu, Regina, here is your hat. It is a little sloppy but there's a lot of love woven in there. I hope you can tell.
Love ya, sis. I want to do with knitting needles the things you can do with words. Make stories. Really good ones.
