Thanks Secret Pal!!

Thank you so much to my super special Secret Pal on the other side of the world! I do believe you said you are in Singapore :) I can't wait to find a pattern to turn this pretty purple wool/alpaca blend into a warm pair of mittens and hat for moi :) I'm soooo excited! Thank you also for the patches for Eli, the needles, tape measure (also taken over by Eli :), and the cute cell phone charm which is currently dangling off of my phone as we speak! I had faith your package would arrive- silly faith I still have in the postal service- and it was filled with some great surprises:

Pumpkin carving...Eli's first carving session with the fam...much fun had by all :)

...and...his second pair of mama-knit socks (yes, there is only one in the photo, but I swear, the other one exists!!) The little man is becoming one super spoiled handknit sock wearing little man...and I love it!

Today I'm feeling random...here's a picture of me showing Eli how to shove a sheep!...kidding of course...we were at the County Fair when they were doing the sheep judging...sigh...how cool is that? Please pay no mind to my Miami Vice tribute dress...found it in a vintage clothing store one day...ummm...OK, consignment store, but who's counting...and at the time, I thought it was a great idea! *grin*

Second, a little late I am, (many apologies) but I must show you some really great hand dyed yarn that I traded Jana for over at http://www.whiteoakstudio.blogspot.com/. She calls her product TVYarn. She matches up her colorways to pop culture tv shows and movies...how cool of an idea is that?! This particular colorway is called The Color Purple. Thanks so much for the great trade! I'm loving it so much :)

Last on the list of randomness....ravelry...sigh...stillllllll waiting, but alas, I'm making progress! Here's my stats:

Ayako, here's the two different shades of Zodiac fabric:

Another trip to the hospital...

It's been awhile since my last post- I was in the hospital all last week with my little man, because he was verrrrrrra sick. The doctors diagnosed hime with Kawasaki Syndrome. He had a fever of 104-105 for 6 days, a rash all over his body and a very worried mama...

He's doing better now. We're home...sigh...
