Practice skate before the game.
Hockey in action!
Yay, we scored the first goal! (And the next several, but who's counting?)
Knitting friends! :) In this picture, Sarah, Lynn, me, Emily, and Ilana.
And one from the other side, where none of us are really looking at the camera, but I just enjoy the fact that Lynn is a blur of motion next to me. Lol.
Here, have some non-hockey pictures, too!
This happens regularly in our house, and is why I sometimes call the kitten Parrot. :p
Knitting pictures! Now with bonus background kitten! Lol. (These are the legwarmers I recently finished for Kira; I just have to mail them to her.)
Today is day one of a glorious three day weekend. I am so thrilled, even if I did get up early today to camp out at the library for a free pass that Aimee and I can use next weekend. I got up earlier than I needed to, not realizing that people don't line up quite as early in the winter when it's cold and snowing. But I just hung out in my car and read for an hour, then stood outside for maybe 45 minutes, so it wasn't terrible. And since I was the first in line, I had no trouble snagging us a pass to Casa Loma, so we can go play in a castle for free next weekend! Yay! For the rest of this weekend, I plan on doing a whole lot of nothing. Since I did the bulk of the cleaning last weekend, all that really needs to be done this weekend is laundry and dishes and maybe a sweep. Nothing too major, and I will have plenty of time to read, knit, and catch up on lj.
Speaking of knitting, I finally started a shawl with the really nice yarn Sarah bought me for my birthday. I was trying to use the written instructions, but I really wasn't understanding the pattern that way, and ended up having to rip it out and start over because my stitch count was way off. But I restarted, this time using the chart and having written out what the stitch count should be for each row of the repeat, and it's going much better. I feel like I really get the pattern now and understand what I should be doing, which makes me excited about continuing with it. I can't wait to see how it looks when it's all done!
Otherwise, not much new to report. I think perhaps I will go do some more nothing. Enjoy your weekends, friends!
