So here we are again at Wednesday all ready………
I would like to start by saying I am trying my darndest to join the sweater club. I want to knit more than just a hat or booties. I want to knit a sweater. And so with 4 skeins of yarn and a pattern in hand I have begun. Cast on 133 – join – and knit in the round for 9 inches. I've been knitting in the car….. while the kids take their baths….. in the morning before anyone is awake….. and the sweater has grown to just under 6 inches….. it's coming along slowly but surely and I'm liking the variation in this yarn……. so long as I keep on keepin' on this should be done in plenty of time to be under the tree at Christmas.
And then there's Max. Yes I know the movie Where the Wild Things Are is out in theater, but we are not planning on seeing it. Why you ask?? Because this was my f-a-v-o-r-i-t-e book as a child. One of the very first books I bought my own kids as soon as they were past the "eating board books" stage. A book that has now survived 4 children, a puppy, 5 cross country moves and lived in 4 different states. Seeing the movie would ruin that love affair for me. And since I am smitten with my littlest's sudden interest in this book, I dare say I may ban the movie completely! I remember reading this story night after night after night years ago to the eldest when he was the same age. (insert teary eyes here) Mr Three is certainly King of the Wild Things around here…… and Max is his hero these days…. so I am going to come up with my own version of a "Wolf Suit" for my own little mischief maker……..
"Max" pattern cut out…….
And there's talk amongst the bigger wild things of a little red riding hood and a granny to go with her….. so I'd better get sewing while Wild Thing Mr Three is napping…..
