I needed some new #1 DP's because I broke one of my favorite wooden ones recently. I found these metal square needles and decided to try them. They claim to be good for people with arthritis, and while I don't suffer from this, I thought it couldn't hurt! And then I saw the circular square needle (can we say "oxymoron"?) and thought I would use it for that Mitered Baby Jacket I'll be making. The bamboo DP's are to fill out my inventory. I can never find my #10's when I need them, so now I don't have to hunt anymore.
Last week Poppop and I took the Collins family to Hoffman's Playland in Latham for a day of fun. The first ride was on the train through the park to check out what rides we wanted to try.
The helicopter ride was tons of fun and Moose wanted to fly it as high as it would go.
Poppop suggested trying out the carousel. It seems that Moose thinks that's a great idea!
I would say they are enjoying this ride.
Since it was a very hot afternoon a cool ice cream cone seemed to hit the spot.
Hey! Who put the paper on my cone?
The hot air balloon ride was fun for Moose and Mommy.
And there he is wearing his number 10 jersey!
Well, I guess a souvenier rock is just as special. Or was it a bug?
I have had a busy three weeks with Moose's visit and I'm sure going to miss him when he goes home this weekend. But I'm also going to get a much needed rest. I forgot what it was like to chase after a two year old. LOL!
