The Nashua Projects for Knot Another Hat

I heart this little pink sweater. I sort of bullied Sarah into letting me knit something for the shop. She was kind enough to indulge my need to knit something tiny cute and pink. With boys, there is just no accepting PINK in the wardrobe.
Plus, it just made me plain "HAPPY" while I was knitting it up. I am glad to have a couple more reasons to do more girl items. My sister in laws is expecting her first baby,in June. This is the ONLY granddaughter on my husbands side to be born so far.
Boys run strong in the Whitaker blood. There are 6 boys total ranging from 10-3yrs old. For that matter on my side we have only grandsons too my 4,my brother has 2 and my sister has 1, yes all boys.

Also, making it's appearance is the Rainbow Cardigan out of the Cotton Twist from KNOT ANOTHER HAT. I love how bright the colors are. It made me want to eat Skittles while I was working on it.

I hope Sarah likes the finished product. I feel a bit nervous for the FINAL INSPECTION. It was so fast and fun to knit up. I do have to say the Cotton Twist is a bit hard to work with but I was much more comfortable with it by the end of the project.

As for the troops all is well. Seems to be strangely quiet around here this afternoon.

I do have an "I CAN'T BELIEVE HE DID THAT" entry.

My number 3 little man Cole (who just turned 5 on Sunday) sees himself as a big boy now. Not that age has ever determined how BIG my boys have felt. They all mimic each other anyway. This is quickly becoming a trait I do not enjoy. So on with the story.
He decided he was hungry (again that hour). I tell him to wait a few minutes and I would start lunch. While I was putting away the laundry, I hear the boys yelling at Cole for starting a fire. My heart was in my throat. I rush in to find the cup of noodles (with no water in it) melting in the Styrofoam container in the microwave. Cole looks at me and asks "Am I in trouble?" The boys are all to excited to answer for me on this one "YEAH YOU ARE!" I sent him to his room to think about why it would be bad if he does this again. He came back with a really short answer. "I'm sorry I burned the microwave. It is bad if I do it again. I will get a spanking." Oh boy what am I going to do with them. I think it is time for my firefighter volunteer hubby to give them the FIRE TALK..

My brother did something similar. My parents buy bread a few loaves at a time and freeze the extra loaves. Well, my brother wanted a sandwich so he got frozen bread out and put it on a plate to microwave it. My mother smelled smoke so she went to check and the bread was black and so was the paper plates. Oh, yeah, and there was still 8 minutes left on the microwave!

One time my sister braddah dem, small kid time, wanted to see how high a thermometer would go... so they put it in the toaster!

I, of course, was totally innocent, as I was not even there!

Can't wait to meet you in 3-D two weeks from tomorrow!!
