Too Low

Here's a picture that I've posted before, but it's one of my all time favorite pics of Son #2. It was taken... hmmm.... 6 or 7 years ago:

And here he is recently on his 15th birthday (he loves having his picture taken. not.):

T bday

DH was out of town so I took the boys out for a pasta dinner. They were all well behaved and I thoroughly enjoyed the time with them, in spite of the lady who sat across the room with her back towards us in her slightly too low on the hip jeans. I was hoping my dear 11 yo wouldn't notice but before we left I leaned over and casually asked him if his view was the same as mine. He nodded in the affirmative with a single word, "Crack". Sigh. So for my public service announcement of the day:

Please, for the love of humanity, keep it covered gals!

Anyway, I just received my first shipment from The Loopy Ewe Sock Club! I'm so excited! I've never been a part of a sock club before so it was great fun to open a package with a mystery yarn, pattern, and other goodies. I'll get pictures up soon, but don't want to spoil it for anyone who might still be waiting for theirs to arrive. (But I will tell you that the yarn is one of my absolute favorites!)

In the meanwhile, here's a peek at my Ene's Scarf which has me thoroughly addicted.

Poor boys!

Your shawl is so elegant! I love the color, but working with it would really do a number on my eyes. How do you do it?

Tammy, I love reading your blog (mother of boys dontcha know), and pardon me, but, does the lens of your camera need a little windex? you have random blurry spots although otherwise the pictures look great! love that gray yarn!

Tammy said...

That's funny about the blurry spots. My eyes are bad so I thought it was just me until I noticed it on several photos. Yep, time for windex. :)

My boys are still young enough we can usually divert their attention. Only a few more years.

I took part in my first sock club this year. I loved the surprise in each box. My only disappointment was the complainers on the Ravelry group. Just got my box...don't like this one...who wants to buy it?! I think it's fun to get something you wouldn't normally buy for yourself. Can't wait to see what's in your box.
