Try To Keep Up, Would Ya?

Quickly Now!  Here are some snapshots of the week past...

The 2nd Itty Bitty sweater is completed, and as you can see...totally cute

Shoes, wrangled.
Those of you who have been to IKEA may recognize these items as laundry hampers (white) and shoe wranglers (black) although, I'm sure IKEA has much more dignified names for them.  I also purchased a cordless drill for the express purpose of attaching IKEA purchases to my walls--that's committment, people...

After IKEA, we went to Big Bowl and had mochi.  The most "American" way I can describe this dish is to say that it's ice cream enrobed in a gummy bear.  Each one is dumpling sized, and comes in orange, coffee and "some mysterious thing" flavors, with chocolate and caramel dipping sauces.  It wasn't on the menu where we went, so be sure to ask for it if you don't see it, and they'll make it for you.

Here, Napoleon bites the hand that feeds...

Meanwhile, the Good Son cuddles up with his Teddy and a binkie.
The blankie is the 2nd of the "6 Hour Afghan" patterns I have completed, with Speed Stix and enough odds and ends yarn to wrap a house with.  Jack ADORES this blanket....

  1. What are Speed Stix and why do I want/need them without knowing what they really are?

  2. Speed Stix are knitting needles, American size 50. That's five-zero. They are huge. They are also kind of annoying, but strangely addictive...
