Summertime !






Summer has hit with a vengeance and I'm loving it ! Like much of the eastern part of Canada we've been experiencing a heat wave , with temperatures in the 30s . We've gone from snow on Mothers' Day to heat like it's July already. Fortunately for us the pool has been up and running for a couple of weeks .Can you believe that we were able to go for a swim on Victoria day weekend - unheard of ! Jessey is not a big fan of the pool yet but managed to find some ways to stay cool .


The only thing that marred this otherwise perfect week has been the elimination of our Canadiens in the playoffs . I guess it was inevitable that they run out of steam at some point , but we're still sad to see the dream of the Stanley Cup back in Canada have to wait for another year . The boys gave us an exciting run and hats off to them . I'll be cheering for Phillie , while Mike supports the Blackhawks , go figure ....

Just in the nick of time , I finished another little baby sweater . This is for Chantal's brother's baby , Liam expected in mid July . I say in the nick of time because the shower is tomorrow afternoon . The pattern is the basic baby v cardigan (again ). "Again " is what it says on your ravelry page whenever you knit the same pattern more than once. Laughed when I saw that , apparently I do that quite often . I love this pattern and I love the yarn (Berroco Comfort DK ) . Perfect little baby sweater if I do say so myself !
Have a wonderful weekend ....

Love the photos of your grandson. He's grown so much.
It's hot, isn't it? I don't like it.
Where does it say "again"? Are you serious? I've knit several pattern more than once, but haven't seen that.

Love the little cardigan, and Jesse is just too cute! My oldest hated the pool when he was little like that, but now he loves it. He actually wasn't much of a fan of the pool til he was about five.

Cute sweater - I've never noticed the "again" on rav - I'll have to go look

It is a perfect little sweater! Have fun at the shower.

And sometimes it's just as well if the little ones are a bit shy about the pool. Better more careful than less!
