Our yard was flamingoed! It's a fundraiser for a local youth group. We can pay $20 to have the flamingos removed, or $15 to have them removed and directed to another house of our choice. How much to keep them?

Elderberry Gingko

shawlette too

I finished this shawlette for Amelia back in September, but wanted to get pictures of her wearing it for the post! The pattern is Gingko by Maggie Magali, knitted in Knit Picks Shimmer Hand Dyed Lace Yarn (elderberry colorway) on size 6 needles. I loved knitting this little shawlette, so fun!

Here are some outside pictures, to show off the structure a little better!

I promise I won't let my blog become a dog blog, but how can I resist taking pictures of this cutie?

We adopted a puppy! Her name is Dee Dee, she's 9 weeks old. She's a mutt (Dalmatian, Lab, Pug, French Bulldog + ??? mix). So sweet. Just getting used to her new home and her new people.

The kids are using this book of mandala paintings as a map for their adventure game. It's pretty cool to listen to them talking about the paintings and describing all the characters and dangers they have to pass in the game.

I just spent TWO HOURS getting this kid to sleep. I'm posting this picture so I can think of him as a sleeping baby and not a wailing banshee.
