Where Has Sheepshots Gone?

Been away from the blog for over a week (closer to two, really) because I have been very, very busy. (Or lazy. You be the judge.) I had planned to break this into several posts, making my Regular Readers think that I had posted, they had just missed reading.

I decided to start a Knitting Olympics project, and even though it's supposed to be a challenge, the challenge will be in getting it finished. Despite non-stop knitting on this Blanket From Hell (complete with serious mistake deviation from the printed pattern), I am at 45% and counting. The closing ceremonies are on the 28th. That's more than a week away. Will Sheepie make it? I started late. Does that count?

This is a fair entry and I hope to add a sweater and hat to the mix, but there will need to be some serious math to get the yarn I am using (Patons Decor) to coperate with the pattern I want to use.

Stay tuned.

We had company!

Tiny Prince in his Christmas sweater. Isn't he a handsome boy?

This shot was taken right before they packed up the car to head home. Snow was predicted (but didn't materialize), so plans stayed in a state of flux right up to the very last minute.

Even so, there was almost an immediate return trip for forgotten items, but Daddo and I found a box and took them to the Post Office. They should be at the Tiny Prince's house by now.

We had a lot of fun!

Tiny Prince helped with cooking. We baked some blueberry muffins (from a mix) that were a big hit.

Can't wait to taste them!

(Actually, for "from a mix," they weren't all that awful.)

Mammo's ball winder got a workout as the Tiny Prince rewound a lot of yarn into new pull skeins

Now, if he could just keep "clockwise" turning. . .

We found a prince-sized mop in the garage (I use it to clean bathroom floors--it fits better behind things than the regular mop.

It got a workout, too. The Tiny Prince loves to help.

After a hard day, a fellow needs his bath!

And some hand cream for those dishpan hands.

Then into jammies and hop on the bus to Dreamland.

Bears, too.

The Tiny Prince is well worth waiting for. He is more handsome every time we see him.
I loved the photo diary of the TP's visit. He is adorable! And getting bigger every time we see him.
