Happy Weekend!

On Saturday we attended the Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival. We hadn't planned to, but on Friday Alison and I tried to go to the yarn store and it was closed for the Festival. I had to explain to her why we weren't going in and so she decided that an Art Festival seemed like THE place for her to be.

They had an amazing Children's Art Workshop area sponsered by local museums. Alison got her art on!

In knitting news, that trip to the yarn store ended up being a trip to the other yarn store where I picked up 2 delightful balls of Karabella Yarns Aurora 8 in colorway 1581, which sadly does not have a name.

I was on the phone with a friend the other day and he told me that earlier that day he'd helped his mom shave her head 'cause her hair's been falling out from her chemo treatments. Immediately, I wanted to knit her a chemo cap.

This yarn is so buttery soft, I know it will comfort her. And it's my first cabling project and suprisingly it wasn't very difficult.

Totally unrelated, have you seen this?? Start 'em young. :)

To Michelle from the comments, I bought that onesie at SuperTarget. It was on an endcap near the baby cup aisle, not with the clothes. And it was only $2.50!

Also, there's been some talk in the Megaknits household about Mrs Megaknits getting herself more freelance work. Mrs Megaknits has a few prospects which she is hopeful about, but she is also terribly nervous. Cross your fingers.

And last, but certainly not least, I got my first package from my Secret Pal today!!! Thanks Pal!!! Pics tomorrow.
