FO and the Fair!
So can I technically call it a FO if I didn't weave in the ends yet?!
Assuming I can because its mine and I say what goes I finished my elisa nest tote today while driving (actually hubby drove) to and from the fair!
I was so excited and wanted to try it out I didn't have time to weave the ends in before going out to the garden and picking the latest and greatest veggies! I promise I'll weave them in tonight when the kids go to bed!
OK back to the tote, it holds a lot of veggies! I mean a lot! Inside are the following: 4 cucumbers, 3 yellow squash, 1 big orange pepper, a whole bunch of little red and orange tomatoes, a big handful of green beans, a large zucchini(about as big as my forearm), a few Roma tomatoes and a few larger variety tomatoes. That's a lot of stuff if you ask me. I was surprised how much fit in there. Now having made one I want to go buy some fun colored cotton and make a few more! Actually I like how this cotton knit up for this pattern. I had originally bought it back when I was making a bunch of baby bibs and burp cloths (from Mason Dixon Knitting) for a friend. I didn't like how the yellow pooled, it looked like a dog peed on the bib. I'm glad it worked for this tote! I think it looks quite summerie(is that a word?!).
It can also hold other things, like books from the library!
He was happy holding it but it started getting heavy...
See his head?! Hubby had me shave off his hair and G had to be like daddy, so off his hair went. I should have done it a month ago, when it was sooo hot out.
Yes we went to the fair, L wanted to go see the pigs first, she's been in a Charlotte's web phase lately. Well not really we haven't been watching much of anything lately but last week when we were at the library they cleaned up so well and listened, I rewarded them with picking out a few movies. One of them was Charlotte's web 2, hence the pigs.
Of course I wanted to go and see the sheep, but most of them were sleeping, it was hot and icky out! I don't blame them! I was surprised to see these with their wool still on their little bodies... Romney lambs I think?!
Then there were a bunch of these guys, all naked, tee hee ;O)
We ended the trip with a bag of cotton candy. I love the stuff and only get to eat it once a year! As expected L made a mess of herself. Notice the cotton candy all over her and the water bottle :O)
