Beannachtaí Lá Fhéile Pádraig libh go leir! (Happy St. Patricks Day in Irish)
It was an absolutely beautiful day today. The sun was beaming and everyone was outside mowing lawns, chatting etc. Just a beautiful spring day. The time had come, I thought, to teach Alice her latest milestone.
Look at her go! Riding her bike with no stabilisers. Isn’t she great? It only tooke her about half an hour and she was whizzing up and down the road. I must admit to getting a bit of a lump in my throat. She’s growing so fast! She’ll be 8 on Sunday. Actually she should have been 8 today, but she decided she wanted to bake a bit longer before coming into the world.
See all the chalk? Yep, that was her too. Well, and all the other kids on the street too. They decided to decorate the road. Sure no harm done, it’ll rain here pretty soon I’m sure and wash it all off.
I’m about a third of the way through the Right Front. An easy knit, except for the short rows. I can do the wrap and turn thingy, but knitting the wrap with the stitch still eludes me a little. I tend to end up with holes. I resorted to dropping the stitch and picking it up with a crochet hook. That semed to do the trick.
