As of Friday morning the Broadripple socks that I did on the Cherry Tree Hill yarn that Rhonda gave me are finally done! I got my lovely Mom to model them for me since I have a hard time taking a nice shot of my socks on my feet. I also finally got a chance to photograph the socks that I made Paisley with the same yarn. I just cast on 44 sts and did a K2P2 to rib for the kiddie socks. The only way I could get that my dear daughter to model the socks for me on Friday was to keep her tights on and also model with her Grandma.

Awwe..look at my hardworking ladies below:

I had a busy weekend beginning on Friday. My parents came from Owen Sound for an overnight visit. My brother had a hockey playoff game against Niagara-on-the-Lake in Virgil, ON and they needed a place to stay and since we live fairly close to Niagara we welcomed them. :-) We all went on Friday night to see the game and it was a victorious win for the Owen Sound Jr. Attack(midget team). Unfortunately because my brother's a goaltender, it wasn't his night in net so we didn't get to see him play, but it was an excellent game and now they get to enter the semi-finals and I got to try out my new socks at the arena too and they kept my toes toasty. They all left on Saturday morning before I had to go to work and boy did I ever have a busy day in the photo lab, it just seemed like everyone in Hamilton wanted to get their pictures done but it was well rewarded afterwards because Ron and I had an evening to ourselves! My MIL Rhonda took Paisley for one of their "Saturday Night Specials". On the spur of the moments we decided to use our theatre coupons that we got in boxes of Lipton tea and went to the movies and it cost us a whole $1.90, can't beat that! We went to see Night At the Museum. It was a fun movie, a little unrealistic, but very cute, I recommend it for a great family movie!! On the way home, we stopped for some Swiss Chalet take-out and headed for home for a night of knitting/online game playing. Yep, *LOL* that's what we do, our computer's in the living room so he plays his World of Warcraft and I do my knitting and we talk. I started playing around with the sweater I want to knit, but haven't quite started it yet. I will post progress pictures one I actually get started!

Oh, I forgot to mention that on Friday night while my mom and I watched a movie I managed to knit a barbie dress for Paisley. It wasn't from a pattern or anything, I just started knitting and knitting and knitting and came up with this:
I had fun knitting it because I had no idea how it was going to turn out or if it was even going to work out, but it fit. I even glitter glued a little heart on the dress as an added touch.

Well..that's about it for my weekend. It's always over so fast! I hope everyone else had a good one. Tomorrow Paisley has her very first visit to the dentist. I am so excited and very curious to see how it goes. I (unlike many) love going to the dentist, I love have my teeth poked and prodded at and love that feeling of have my teeth cleaned. It always feels so awesome afterwards! I am hoping she takes after me and enjoys dentist visits.
