Why do weekends go so fast?

My daughter was here and now she's on her way back to school. The weekend just few by at breakneck speed. We had a lot of fun. I really enjoyed having her home.

While she was here my sisters came over and we had a grand old time. We made some dotees, we talked, we laughed, we ate, we laughed some more, we petted the cats, and talked, and did I mention we laughed a lot? A grand night was had by all. We did get a little bit of sewing done on the dotee dolls.

I made the pink one. My daughter made the witch, the silly fish with a worm in its mouth, and the popcorn one. She gave the popcorn one to the cats to bat around. We laughed so hard about that worm hanging out of the fish's mouth. You know how it is, one of those things where you had to be there.

We did do a little grocery shopping too. While we were in Kroger I spied these potato chips. University of Michigan potato chips! I just HAD to buy them for my son. I gave them to him today. He loved them! He said he'll eat them next Saturday during the U of M football game.

This afternoon I was playing around with my fabrics and stuff and made this little hedgehog pincushion. A free pattern from urban debris dot com. So cute! I think I may get more pins and really load him up with quills.

I have been knitting on the sock. I won't bore you with yet another sock picture. Did I mention I'm taking a knitting class? I'm going to learn (finally) how to do two color knitting. I've had a heck of a time grasping this concept. We will be making a beret in the class. Here's the yarn I bought for it:

The white will be the main color and the Noro will be the design. My first time ever using Noro. The colors are so pretty. I just hope I can do this. OK, I know I can. I'm ready to learn! I'll keep at it until I get it right.

Cool! I have yet to attempt two color knitting.

Yes, where do the weekends go.
