It has been quite a week!
My evil children conspired to infect me with their disgusting colds. Between the three of us being unwell and my husband working the entire weekend (including the holiday Monday - ironically called Family Day), we have continued to spend waaaayyyyy too much time around the house.
|DO NOT be fooled by their sweet appearance|
I finally decided we had to get out yesterday. We took a day trip to the Royal Tyrrell Dinosaur Museum.
|Do you think wearing dinosaur costumes in February is a sign it's time to get out of the house |
and go see some real dinosaurs?
On the way there, a rock flew out from a passing semi and shattered a window on my car. (Jeesh. I'm starting to get this paranoid feeling that the universe is not very happy with me.)

The museum was totally awesome and the kids had a blast (and no one in the car was hurt by the rock or the window).
There have been several low moments this week when I have been too sick to knit - the horror!
There has also been plenty of other times where I was able to find the will to live and make some good progress on my knitting!

I know its hard to see the progress, but at 366 stitches to a row,
you're going to have to trust me on this one.
Here you should see a rather horrid picture of my new project - Lace Cotton Ponchette.
The computer is refusing to upload it (paranoia rising!)
I like the way it looks but knitting the cotton is a serious PITA
|I'm about 1/3 through the Baby Chalice Blanket.|
This is definitely my favourite project right now
I have to give a nod to The Harlot for today's blog format. I totally stole it from her. Apparently, my head is much too cloudy from the cold medication to think for myself.
Hope your week is having less ups and downs than mine and includes time to check out more WIP's (written with far sunnier dispositions - I promise) through Tami's Blog.
See you Friday.
