I took the twins out to the pool this morning. They wanted to swim before going to lunch.
While they were swimming & having a lot of fun, I was chasing my pattern for the Sand Castles Shawl.
It ended up in the pool.
It didn't get completely soaked, but it was wet enough.
What I didn't realize was...as I went chasing after it, (mid-row) all my yarn was pulling from the ball. Of course, this would be the time that the ball stayed put instead of rolling away from me. I am, however, grateful that it didn't decide to take a swim with the pattern.
Jen went to the hospital late last night & the little guy put up quite a fight.
He was born this evening around 8:30.
He weighed in at 8 lb 5 oz.
And he has red hair! Or so I've been told. I won't know for sure until I see for myself tomorrow.
While I was waiting at home, I got a bit of quilting done, some organizing of fabrics and a little crochet.
Squared up some blocks on the design wall, folded fat quarters & sorted 1/4 yd, 1/2 yd, 1 yd & 1+ yardage.
In other news...the excitement of the night was the dog getting skunked. Lots to do tomorrow and now we will have to clean the porch, toss out all of the cushions & get rid of the carpets out there. He rubbed everywhere. At least the girls were willing to clean him up. Protective layers of gloves, Saran Wrap on the hair and arms, masks and old clothes. I promised no pictures, but they sure did look great!
