Instead, I spent a lot of my time knitting. Something I thought would take me a couple hours Saturday morning ended up finished Saturday evening. I was working on Elefante for the E is for Elephant Swap I'm participating in. More details on all that later, but I forgot how much time the finishing up can be. When he woke up from his very late nap, Squishy found the Elefante and played with him a lot. Good thing I've got a 2nd one in the works because he's gotten a bit attached...
Because of a booboo I made on my first Elefante attempt, I decided to make up for the small delay by including another knit item in the package. It's ALMOST finished - I should be able to complete it tonight, do a gentle blocking and get things packaged up. I'm past the mail-out date. I hate that. I hope my swap partner feels that it's worth the wait! I know I'm not the only one waiting to mail out a package, but I just don't like missing the deadline.
While I have been furiously attempting to finish up the swap requirements, Lovebug's blanket has been put on hold. I'm anxious to get back to it and finish off the remainder of the yarn. I only have a few more weeks to go and I have promised myself it will be finished on time. Besides, one's queue never gets any shorter and there are so many other things I'd like to knit.
Friday we took Squishy out to the Corn Maze outside of town. He's really a bit too young to fully appreciate what the maze is all about. The three of us went with Mama & Papa and we enjoyed watching Squishy explore. There was a small kids hay maze that he ran around in, some tires to climb, and some animals to meet and pet.
What Fall activities have you had the pleasure of participating in? Soon we'll be raking leaves and painting pumpkins...where has the time gone?
