More Projects

It's official! We are moving to Palo Alto in nine days. We found a fun rental only three miles from Google so Andrew will be able to bike to work in a matter of weeks. It is a three bedroom, two bath duplex with a low-maintenance (but well taken care of) yard for the dogs. It is 1,700 square feet so we will be gaining 200 feet of extra space. The duplex is great for these reasons: on a cul-de-sac, two-story so the dogs will be limited to the downstairs meaning the upstairs will remain relatively cleaner, there is an attic with tons of storage, it is across the street from a nursery and a tot park, the neighbors all seem to have small children, and it is in walking distance from a gourmet grocery store and ice cream shop.

Blake got invited to another birthday party so I made the little girl some legwarmers (picture above). I hope she likes them and I hope she gets to wear them since the weather is so warm already.

A few weeks ago I made this hat for Aden who I used to nanny for. He turned six on Jan. 26th so I saw it fit to make him a skater beanie. Usually I have skateboarding in mind, but he is a hockey player so I sewed on a hockey puck patch once I finished knitting it up. Aden's mom says it fits and once again I hope he gets to wear it even though it is in the 70's.

Off to sleep so I can wake up and get into super packing mode.

Happy packing you guys! I can't wait to see the new place once you get situated. I love love love the legwarmers - I know you crank them out like crazy nowadays. The hat is super cute too - great job!
