Weekend of Cleaning..and A FO!

While I was able to do a decent amount of knitting this weekend (more to follow), I spent most of my time cleaning. I don't remember our house getting so dirty prior to a child! Our cat leaves half his body weight in hair around the house, it seems, but the child manages much more than that. Plus, I have never seen a kid with so many toys. Suggestion to relatives who read the blog: No toys for presents. The kid has plenty!

On to the knitting!

My first Klara sleeve is almost complete. I ended up taking out just 1.5 inches. I decided to live on the edge. I was actually afraid that Klara might not be drapey enough without the length.

And, a FO! I was able to make a decent amount of progress on Anna's Pumpkin hat. It felt so nice and cool last week that I thought she might need it sooner, rather than later. Alas, it was 90 degrees yesterday and today. Pesky Texas weather.

Unlike the Poncho she liked the hat:

What is it with Anna and hats? It is like she has already become an adolescent skate punk? Probably just rewards for the pink jello hair and men's pajamas from the mission that I wore to torture my parents in my youth. Check out this cool kid pose:

Bruce says he is moving into the barn when she's a teenager. I'm going to the spa for a few years!
