This week there are some crazy fun things in my world this week!
If at first you don’t succeed… find a better decrease!
I tried valiantly to work the fancy SSK’s that were shared via Mason Dixon Knitting on my Carbeth but, in the end, they just did not work for me! I had some serious ladders between the stitch before the decrease and the decrease. My solution? Find another decrease. Thank you to Cocoknits for her Neater Way to SSK!! I hope to get some photos of my Carbeth today, it is finally dry enough and colder weather has kindly returned to facilitate wearing it!
I had been all a-gog over those Norwegian’s in their crazy curling pants, and then Vicki sent me this…as she said to me: You’re Welcome!
And, the last thing that has put a permanent smile on my face this week are the pictures that Heidi texted me of Genevieve skiing for her first time! Yep, 2 and a half and she loved it! Look out Lindsey Vonn, there’s a new girl on the hill!
Want to see more fun things? You will normally find them here, but I am not sure if Carole will be in today, as she is DOING all the things on her vacation this week!
Those are Very Fun Things, indeed!
(Genevieve’s smile. Oh, yeah.)
I needed a bit of fun this morning – thanks
OhMyGoodness!!! Genevieve’s smile is precious!!!
And the hands-free pants? Hilarious!!! Thanks for sharing!!!
You have an adorable, talented granddaughter (but I’m pretty sure you already knew that)!
Love all of this and the hands free pants thing is so funny! Go Genevieve Go!
Laughing all the way! Good for you in finding a decrease that worked for you. Looking forward to Carbeth! Yay! for your little one. So CUTE!
Aw, look at that little skier! My daughter has been skiing for a couple of years now and it amazes me how quickly she has picked it up. I’ve tried once and it was a horrible experience. I’m perfectly happy to stay home and knit!
Who knew that Norwegians & pants could be so entertaining!! They’re one of the best things about recent Winter Games! Go, Genevieve, Go!!
Genevieve is rocking that ski slope!
LOL, that video is the best thing I’ve seen this week!
Curling is my new favorite sport. 😉
Go, Girlie, Go!
Look at that little gal go. She is darling.
skiing ??!! YAY!! now I think I want to see curling without pants (is that a thing?!) … and that Julie is a smart woman – thanks for sharing all of those smiles!
The Norwegian pants thing made me smile out loud!
I agree those fancy (but logical) ssk’s on MDK were a bit twisty, but I like those of CocoKnits just as well.
Isn’t it amazing how little kids will tackle anything?
OH her first ski trip – what an adventurist!! I love her smile and her joy. Thanks for the video, I’m smiling and laughing 🙂
