Lights...

I did get some lights hung in the kids rooms. I had hoped that the flower & the moon light would save me from having to sleep with the hall light on...give the kids enough light without too much. Um, not so much.

Surprisingly, these lights give off much more light than you would think. They are cute none the less so they are staying.
I also installed by the bed lights for both Hannah & Simon.
We used Simon's last night while reading his bedtime story.
Knitting...I have a plan. I bought yarn from Morehouse Farms to make the Barbizon Jacket. Um, it wasn't going well since I now see, I got the wrong yarn for that pattern. It called for sport weight and I got worsted.

Anyway, still love the yarn but I am going to repurpose it to Greenjeans from Knitty.
I just have to find my ball winder so I can frog the 5 inches from the Barbizon and wind the hanks into balls. Oh yeah, and find my needles.
