You know you knit too much when you look at this piece in the museum of fine arts and think .... gee I wonder how much yarn that would hold .....
Theodor Seuss Geisel aka Dr Seuss is from Springfield so there are a couple sculptures of his amazing characters in the center courtyard. As always I was amazed by the parents who let their kids walk all over this artwork even though there were signs everywhere saying to stay off.
We stayed overnight in West Springfield and the next day took a little trip up Rt 5 to Web's. Like a kid in a candy store! Seriously it would be easy to spend $500 without blinking an eye. Only $95.00 so I think I did well. Online sock yarn was $7.49 a skein, Meilenweit was only $9.70. Bargins! Ella Rae was on clearance for $2.99 a skein. Think I'll make myself a hat, mitten, scarf set since I realized yesterday that I don't have a winter hat, scarf, or mittens. How sad is that? It's like the shoemaker's kids having to go barefoot. The tofutsies was on clearance for $11.20. I've never used it so why not give it a try. And the one thing I love the most is that skein of green sock yarn at the bottom. It's named Fried Green Tomatoes. Love the movie and had to have the yarn.
I managed to finish clue #4 of the sotsii. I printed off clue 5 last night. The group is on clue 6 so I'm not that far behind.
On our way back home we stopped with the intent of picking up W and N to spend the weekend at our house. I had called the night before and N was sick with a temp of 102. By the time we got there yesterday W was also ill with the same temp. We stayed and visited for a couple hours. I spent most of the time sitting on the couch rubbing backs and talking.
N hasn't been eating anything so in his small little 3 yr old voice he said, "Gram, could you get me some cereal?" I went in the kitchen to ask his mom and came out with a bowl of dry cereal. "Gram, could I have a shrek bowl?" Back in the kitchen to transfer the cereal into a green bowl with shrek ears. "Gram I could use some water." So back to the kitchen to get him some water and that's when my daughter came out with, "What are you? N's Lorax? You speak for the boy because the boy can't speak?" Ummm yes .... I'm Gram and my job is to cater to grand kids. And I'm very good at it too.
Snowing here. Suppose to get 7-8" so I'll be starting on clue 5 for sure.
