Proud Mum Moment

Yesterday was Piano Recital Day for the boys and so not alot of knitting was accomplished. Don't they look so handsome. It's interesting to see the different personalities in these boys. Declan (#2 child) was very nervous beforehand, but played beautifully, not missing one note, everything perfect. Which is exactly how Declan likes things - he's our perfectionist. Caleb sauntered up to the stage, no fear at all. He was very confident and did a lovely job. Although he doesn't enjoy practicing piano, he has such a beautiful sound and doesn't hit but squeezes the piano keys. I'm done bragging for the moment.

Now, to the knitting. Today is the official launch of Tudor Rose KAL. I'm very excited to start Eliz I today in deep red Silky Wool. Unfortunately there is some (5+) loads of laundry to be done. Which is beyond me, because as of Friday afternoon the laundry was completely up to date. I guess that's what you get for having 4 kids. Not to worry, I'm still in proud mum stage so I don't mind.

Last night, as I was trying to behave and not start Eliz a day early, I had a serious case of Cast-on-itis. I did dig into the stash and start a Mason Dixon Knitting Log Cabin with some GGH Bali yarn. It will be a fun mindless project to have on the side.

It's a beautiful day for a Cast-On!

Your yarn choice for Eliz I sounds lovely, looking forward to seeing your progress on the KAL.

I have 4 kids too, so I totally sympathise on the washing, lol!

it's a beautiful day for a cast on. and you should be a proud mama. Beautiful boys.
Today I am fast and furiously working on a baby blanket myself - must get this gift DONE!

Oh, you should have cast on early to make up for me casting on late! I still haven't gotten the yarn.

You ought to be proud! Such handsome boys. I pulled out my old piano sontina recital piece not long ago and I couldn't even tell you the notes from it. I used to do it from memory. Use it or lose it, I suppose.

I love that Log Cabin. Everyone's looks so awesome too. Can't wait to see yours.
