New Friends!

This weekend we went to two knitting gatherings and just had a wonderful time. First we went to the inaugural meeting of the Arizona Chapter of the International Knit Circle, where we met the charming LusciousGracious clan in the flesh for the first time. We also saw Stephanie who is just wildly productive. Jeremy helpfully ran around after Lily, and I got some knitting done, when Lily wasn't demanding that I run around after her. It was a good time, and I look forward to more like it in the future, when the school schedule permits.

The next morning, Lily and I got up semi-early and made the drive over to Phoenix to have breakfast at the lovely City Bakery where we again hung out with the LG peeps. My Lily especially enjoyed running around with their Lily and their Lucy. Well, that and the cupcake. Without further ado, Stephen's photos of that event!

Don't worry everybody, the cupcake was a very special occasion that we shall not be repeating on a weekly basis. Coming soon, the tale of the baby doll.

New Year's Fun!

Here is the hat I worked on all weekend. It's not totally finished, but it is soft.

I did not get any pictures of Lily on the carousel at the mall, but here is an action shot of her on the monster truck ride at chuck e cheese.

And here is Lily on a weird bicycle contraption that was very popular because if it's enormous "beoons." Anyone who comes visiting, forget the flowers, bring something shiny and helium filled. You've been warned. And just so you know, neither of these rides were activated. We tried a couple age appropriate rides and they stunk, so we played some games and ran around. It was not as bad as I thought it would be. Except when the giant dancing mouse came out. That bit was horrifying.
