We've been having an exasperating number of problems with our internet connection this week, which I am going to blame for falling off the wagon for the SITS challenge, but don't worry, I have other material.
This is my latest knitting project, modeled by the favourite toddler-sized model. I finished it up a few months ago but it took me an unexcuseably long time to actually photograph it. The pattern is called Whirligig Shrug, and I think that "whirligig" is an appropriate word to describe Sadie at the moment (I'd also nominated cranky teething monster, but those don't sound like they'd appeal to knitters much).
In this photo, Sadie is peeking out the doors that lead to the swimming pool at the Somerset Building, where I take her to Gymboree Play and Learn. I think it's awesome that there is a franchise here in HCMC, but I'm currently feeling sort of awkward about it. Thus far, we've always been the first pair to arrive for the class, on the early side but that could easily go the other direction if the traffic into downtown is bad, and this past Wednesday Sadie was having a freak-out during the session. Her instructor commented to me that she was "tired because we come so early", which I sort of dismissed, and just packed us up to leave the class early as Sadie wasn't giving in to any sort of distraction attempt. On the way out, the receptionist gave me an info folder. I opened it up in the car the first line on the enclosed memo was "Please arrive for class no more than five minutes before the start", highlighted in orange. Ugh. Are we problem patrons? (With cute handknits?)
