March Break

I got my friend's clogs finished all but for the felting. I left a message on his machine to call me to arrange a time to come down home to be here when I felt them. That way I can size them properly. I saw his wife today, and she said she would pass the message along. I also knit a single clog in Old Rose. His mother had made his SIL a pair for Christmas, but something went wonky with one of them, and the bottom turned out funny. Too funny to be able to wear. The third slipper is now awaiting felting, too. Got the other pair so I can size it to the mate. (These ones are Patons Classic Wool, btw, in grey mix and black and the old faithful Fiber Trends pattern.)

This week the kids have been off on March Break. Today we went bowling. The Littlest One gets quite excitable. Took a clip of him bowling. I kick myself for not having the camera on when he got his spare (or strike as he said). That was something else. Two young guys (like 20) went with us, and one had never bowled this kind of bowling before. I though he may have fibbed cuz he did really well. We bowled three strings, and the last one he got a 94, having gotten a strike and a spare on top of that. (It's this kinda bowling, the most popular around here. I've only ever done the one with the big balls with holes in them and the big pins once in the West Edmonton Mall.)

Marti is going to be induced tomorrow. We're off in the morning for the weekend to the city for the Oldest One's curling tournament. Will have to find the internet somewhere to see if that super stubborn little Pinta decides to co-operate or not. I'm taking some socks and some felted bags to work on. I'll need something mindless. I'm getting ripped off, though. We're meeting Hubs in the city, so I have to drive in and out, thus missing out on 3 hours or so of knitting time. I hate driving.

Happy knitting!
