And in this corner of the world...

Yay!! The jawbreaker is done! I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I used yarn I bought on ebay, a worsted weight and knit in on size 8s.
I love the cute button I bought at Hobby Lobby, I think it goes nicely with the colors. I plan on giving it to my best friend Linda because the colors are more "her" than me. I started a new one w/ a bulky weight cotton in blues and purples. It is knitting up pretty fast so soon we can wear our matching sweaters out on the town together.
And in other news, my 5yo had surgery this Friday to repair a hernia. He did amazingly well, just a bit of nausea from the anesthesia, but once he was home he was back to his normal little 5yo self (mayhem and destruction). While he was under the nurses took it upon themselves to dress up the his otter blueberry. How cute.

They even gave him a band-aid so he has a matching owie. Awww...the staff was amazing, especially the anesthesiologist who was from Children's. Anthony was in awe of her magic coloring book.
Here he is on the mend with his sister. Aren't they cute on their laptops? You can't see the screens, but they are both playing the same game. Perfect way to while away a rainy Sunday. A rainy Sunday that was my Birthday. Happy Birthday to me! I had a nice relaxing day hanging out with the kids. The real festivities will be next Sat. when we celebrate with our friends. I hope 34 is a good year.

Ack! I'm glad Anthony's ok, it's never fun to have a little one in the hospital! Also, Happy Birthday and the jaw breaker looks great! (But I told you that on knitting night... :))

Happy belated birthday!

I'm glad your son's surgery went well and he is back to his normal self :)

I love the Jawbreaker and button; they look great! Although I saw you model this last week, I didn't get a change to tell you how great it looked :)
