What a crazy weekend! First I quit the competition (I was sick, the pattern was a little unclear, there was no direction from the moderators and I had to frog almost an entire sock!), and then I started again, but I managed to be one of the first sixteen to get their first pair of socks completed, so I get to move on in the competition. I'm still cheering for Limedragon tho'!
The Croup is hangin' on - a nice hard cough that makes my ribs hurt, but I am feeling a tad better.
Puck had his last Hockey game on Saturday afternoon - it was against one of the other EP Squirt C teams. Puck's team had beaten them once in a scrimmage and got beaten up on and beat in a game. Seriously, these kids played like they were playing NHL hockey - fists and elbows and shoves and slashes and tripping and, and, well you get the picture. They're 9-10 year olds, that's not supposed to happen and when it does, it's usually because the coach is not doing his job (in my opinion), either that, or those kids are learning something different at home than my kids are learning. ANYWAY, Puck's team won. Oooooh they won. Puck's best friend scored two goals, his other buddy scored two goals, and Puck scored on an assist from his BF (final goal - made it 5-1!) It felt good to win, and it felt good to win against a team that had beaten them so "dirty". They had a team party afterwards that was delightful. All in all, it was a satisfying end to a very fun season.
I still need to get my SP10 question answers up and I've got way too much yarn pr0n to share, but maybe I'll get those up later tonight! Now I have to go catch up on my blog reading!
Congrats on doing well in Sock Madness - I'll be sending lucky thoughts Harriet's way...
LOVE the socks!
