There were so many awesome runners dressed in funky wigs and costumes. One guy was even juggling three balls as he ran! The Blues Brothers runners were one of my favs.
Pi was a little shy about giving high 5's at first. Once she did it a few times, you couldn't get her away from the sidelines to give high 5's. You can see that my twin sisters and Pi kept creeping into the runner's path because they were so excited. We had to keep herding them back.
When I was in high school and a band geek, we would dress up in our band costume (cowgirls dressed in traditional Irish green and gold) and play music for the runners along this same avenue. This one time, in band camp.... heehee.
I finished a few crochet projects too. My coworker Rosanna is having a baby in January. She's not sure what she's having yet, so she asked if I could make some baby sweaters and hats in white.
These hats were really simple. The pompom one is just working dc in the round for a few rows. The ribbed hat is just sc in blo for 10 inches and then weaving the top together. They were about as simple as you can get.
The sweaters are the Kelly Sweater by Bella Bambina. I used an H hook to make a 3-6 months size and an I hook to make a 6-9 month size. Rosanna's hubby is really tall, so she asked that I didn't make anything newborn size since the baby will probably outgrow it in 3.5 seconds.
There aren't any buttons. Since the sex of the baby is unknown, Rosanna will buy buttons after the baby is born and add them. I used Lion Brand Pound of Love for everything.
Speaking of Lion Brand, their NYC studio will be opening this month in the Union Square area. I printed a pass to the preview this coming Sunday. I'm crossing my fingers I'll be able to go. Any of you local peeps want to go?
