all poppy wanted for his birthday was a canvas work apron for his woodworking. had to be full body with pockets for his tools. it took much searching on google to finally find something that fit the bill. i found many belt aprons made of canvas. pretty women's aprons. plastic factory worker aprons. beautiful leather aprons that were the right configuration but not canvas. this one i got from duluth trading company. it's made out of recycled fire hose. i'm pretty sure he would have wanted something a bit longer but i think i made a good choice. he wears it every day while he's working in the yard and in his woodshop. he knit the sweater on the table in front of him. my cousin got it for him from a cool yarn coop (wish i knew the name of it). it's made out of plant fibers by women in nigeria. see the computer in the background? that's where i am right now.
ann and kaitlin knitting at the party
allison knitting at the party. concentrating very hard.
poppy knit this for kaitin. he made one for allison as well, just a different colorway. the girls love these. allison has a matching scarf.
tabs (the licker) and blue (the lickee) having a cleaning session. they love eachother. blue was throwing up the other night while i was at the gym. turns out she swallowed a ponytail holder. they find the little ones and carry them around in their mouths. they take them to their food bowls and drop them in for safekeeping while they eat. they do this with their little finger puppet toys that they play with. it's adorable. they are like little kids with their toys.
