Little Boy is 4!

Yesterday, Little Boy turned 4 years old. His favorite thing to do these days is wear his Batman Halloween Costume, and pretend to be Bruce Wayne/Batman. He's watched the old Adam West series with his Dad, and just loves to fight the bad guys. So, I made him a Batman cake. I think it turned out pretty nice.
I'm so proud of my big 4 year old. He has this wonderful imagination that shows in his play. He's very into how things work and putting things together. He wakes up with a bundle of energy - little boy hits the ground running and doesn't stop until nap and bedtime. And, he's incredibly sweet. We feel so blessed to have a boy so full of life and personality!
I haven't posted knitting pictures in a while, but I am knitting away every day. I'm finished with the lace bottom of the Lelah tank top, and have to figure out how I'm going to do the top. I have some ideas, but have to write the shaping down for myself. I've also started a pair of socks to give my brother for Christmas. That's been my out-and-about project.
And of course, I'm still working on Gail. I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying knitting up this shawl. The yarn is such gorgeous colors, and making each stitch just makes me happy. The purl sides are getting longer and longer though. I finished the 8th repeat last night. I'm thinking I need to do 11 or 12 repeats, but I'm sure if I'll have enough yarn. I promise to post pictures soon.
Tomorrow, we're going to the Sheepshearing Festival at Gore Place. We haven't been, but it's only about 20 minutes from our house and it looks like there will be lots of enjoyable things for the kids to do and see. I'm looking forward to another fun, family day.
Happy knitting!

Happy Birthday Little Boy! Enjoy the sheep sheering. We saw that at the fair and the kids loved it.

What a fun cake!

Hope you enjoy the festival today.

You asked me about the new toy, it's an electronic cutter. So...if you want to do scrapbooks for the kids, give me a heads up and I'll send you some cute diecuts and whatnot (just let me learn how to use it first).

As for the yarn for Gail, just knit as much as you want. Remember to save a little scrap (10in is more than enough) and send it to me. I'll be happy to spin more for you.
