My weekend got off to a great start (especially with all the kind comments y'all left about my Friday afternoon FO post - thank you!). It's been a while since I've enjoyed a beer with Holly's evening walk.

Saturday morning was chilly and wet outside, but full of warmth and laughter inside. I was fortunate to have little Sam to myself for three whole hours! He danced a little jig on the floor while I heated up his bottle.

and then entertained me mightily by rolling over (and over and over).

I'm not sure what part of Saturday evening I enjoyed more - seeing Wisconsin beat Villanova, or (finally ... it's been a while!) seeing a new cork for my collection.

Yesterday, Holly and I enjoyed a long walk in the park. It wasn't nearly as warm nor as green as I expected, but the sky was blue.

I spent the rest of the weekend finishing the knitting on my Wisconsin sweater (the KAL in Amy's group on Ravelry ends at midnight tonight) and the latest Armand Gamache (oh my, I really loved this one).

Here's a sneak peek of the sweater since I'm not sure if/when I'll have a chance for Katie to take photos.  Not gonna lie - this yarn is a washable wool/silk blend and after a long soak in the sink this morning it was about a size XXL. oops! I crossed my fingers and put it into the dryer. first on extra low, then on low and finally on medium low. By the time it was dry, it was back to a size S. I couldn't be happier with it!

Today's lip color is Aussie Rose. (super happy with it, too!)

Hope your week is off to a bright, spring-like start. We're expecting warm sunshine tomorrow. Marc reports that the construction is in high gear at the golf course and our neighbors are hoping to shotcrete their new pool. I'm not even planning any other activities for Charlie tomorrow!

Love the Aussie Rose on you and that sweater is such a beautiful shade of blue! I've been meaning to tell you, I have two corks here for you. #13, which you no longer need, and #4 which you are welcome to if you want it. (I'm a dolt and should have included them with your LipSense order.)

Lovely color - both the sweater and lipstick. Bet you were relieved that your sweater shrank back to size! Whew! Hooray for Sam...before long, he'll be crawling and then walking...
Enjoy tomorrow with Charlie and a look-see at the golf course!

What a nice weekend. The shade of blue yarn for your sweater is gorgeous and the sweater fits perfectly (thank goodness it shrunk). Now that I know to collect corks...I have #11. Need to go buy some more!

Another gorgeous sweater! If I didn't know better, I would wonder if you had a knitting machine secretly hidden in a closet somewhere. Enjoy that beautiful blue and I'll look forward to seeing what's on your needles next!

I love the linoleum body dances! Ellis does that too. It is an instant smile maker!

Sam is on the "move" now! I love everything about the sweater-one of my favorite colors. Charlie will enjoy all that "activity" too.

I can just picture Sam's little jig! He just exudes happiness and delight. XO Your sweater is beautiful -- hope it doesn't get all stretchy on you as you're wearing it, because it's perfect in your photos. And . . . oh . . . the Construction Joy!

Rolling already!! Your gorgeous new blue sweater matches the sky -- and you've a lot more green stuff than we do, though I'm hoping that will change right quick! Have a fabulous day with Charlie!! So much fun stuff.

Watching that shotcrete is going to be a-maaaaazing! :-) Your new sweater is lovely and I think you've convinced me that Aussie Rose is the place to start!

How fun to watch Sam dance and roll and, BOY, is he going to keep you busy. Can't wait to see how much Charlie enjoys the construction dudes in action! Your sweater is perfect! Love it, love the color and the fit.

That's a delicious shade of blue - like a soft cornflower? It really suits you (as does the lippy). I admire your knowledge of how to shrink your lovely jumper back to size. I'd have panicked!
