Birthdays, Mother's Day, and Knitting

Bryan, my first born, had the unfortunate luck to be born really close to Mother's Day. Therefore, he has to share this day with me every once in a while. He is a very tolerant boy and never seems to mind. Though, at this point in his life, I am now reluctant to call him a boy any longer, as he has turned 20 years old this 13th day of May 2007. How did this happen? How could he be this old, so quickly? Well, my darling daughter says it is because I didn't let him play in traffic! lol - She is always there to help put things in perspective!

So, on this Mother's Day, I would like to wish all my fellow sisters out there that have children, of one sort or another (be it furry babies, husband babies, or actual child babies), a very Happy Mother's Day! I also want to thank all of the people who took the time to comment last week for their comments, it's really a thrill to know that someone is actually reading this blog!

Yesterday was spent shopping for Bryan's gifts for today, not that I am a slacker or anything, but this young man never seems to need or want anything and it causes a ruckus every year. Can you imagine having nothing on your wish list and having to be poked and prodded along to get two items that you might want?

Yeah, not in my lifetime, I must be a real material girl! So, speaking of which here are a few things that have been updated since the last time we saw them:

Kai - June Style: I replaced the motif on top with one that I thought looked better, it has the same amount of rows and the repeat worked really well. I hope that those of you that have Shetland 2 can comment on what you think about this:
Then, there is Antique Lace: The colors in these pictures are dead on for a change. I had some really nice sun streaming in the windows yesterday afternoon. So, this show the true color of Lady Godiva in Ivory. I am thinking that this vest will go with anything and everything, but not the wedding outfit, that I have finally decided on, which is why this one is not on the front burner right now.

And an almost finished Jaywalker in LL Motherlode: I love this color! I think I am going to make a picot top edge on these as they just look so feminine to me, now to make the other sock too! I am usually very bad at the second sock getting on the needles!

And I must show you the fencing, we have purchased the gates and all the wire, cables, nuts and bolts that are needed to complete it now. Since Chris is dedicated to finishing just this right now, I'm sure I will have more pictures soon!

Happy Mother's Day to you and Happy Birthday to Bryan!!!!! The Kai is beautiful!!!! I cannot imagine the switching of colors. It is awesome. And of course the vest looks very nice and the socks, well I think I'm going to have to use that pattern.

Everything looks wonderful, including the fence. I don't have the Shetland book, but whatever change you have made certainly has Kai looking good. I like the colours.

I just came over here from the Exotic Fiber Club to say hello. Love your view;-)
The Mermaid socks were on my list to do but now I'm worried. I'm a lazy knitter and don't want to work hard to make socks fit!

June said...

Welcome to my world, Margene! I am hoping to get the fiber from the Exotic Fiber Club soon! Have you received yours yet?

Angela said...

Motherlode is a very pretty colour, I'll have to keep my eye out for it.

Kai is coming along and it looks wonderful!

Thanks for the eye candy

Just checkin, and hoping I'll find a mid-week post. Disappointed again.
