I went to the Peep’s playgroup for the first time today (he’s been going on Monday mornings since mid-September).  What an action-packed 90 minutes!  There was free play, crafts, circle time, story time, snacktime, more free play, and clean-up time.  I was exhausted by the time we got out of there!  But what a great service provided by the local family network, for free.  There is talk of the budget getting cut further (it’s already been through one round since he started attending), which would be a real shame.

After that we went to the library for a bit, then home for lunch.  He’s winding down now, and I’m hoping he’ll take a nap so I can do at least a little bit of cleaning.

As for the weekend, Larry was able to get two coats of paint on the spare bedroom, and thinks he’ll be able to do the first coat of paint tonight.  So there’s still a shot at getting that room finished before Thanksgiving, which is amazing.  Between the temperature difference between upstairs and downstairs, and that room being just across the hall from the bathroom (perfect for potty training), we want to use that room for a playroom this winter.

But enough of all that – I’ve been promising knitting, and knitting you shall have.

First, the long-overdue birthday hat for Larry’s cousin Stephen.  We call him Ocho, because he’s speed-dial number 8 on our telephones (our home phone speed dials and our cellphone speed dials are the same, otherwise I’d never be able to keep them straight.  Pathetic, I know).

Then, to go along with all the Christmas socks I made this year,


I made an ornament-sized one for each kid.


They’ll all be here at some point this weekend – perfect for the post-Thanksgiving tree-trimming.
