The kids have been attending basketball clinics and have joined a nearby town's basketball teams. With all of the different ages of our little ones and the fact that we have boys and a girl, we are at basketball Mondays., Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. It's a bit much some days, but everyone is having fun and I am getting in a lot of knitting. This past week was a great week for our older two: Sugar Plum scored a buzzer beater and Little Man got a three pointer!

I have been happily knitting away this month on a Ramona Light Cardigan and was very sad to discover when I cracked into the second skein of onyx fingering weight yarn and discovered that there was a massive color difference between the two skeins. I cannot believe that I did not remember that I needed to alternate skeins when using hand-dyed yarn. Though I really didn't want to scrap all of the work from the past two weeks, I decided to start again. I know that it will be worth it in the end!

This hand-blown bulb vase was my souvenir from our trip to Colonial Williamsburg this past June. I should have purchased several! I love buying useful and unbranded trinkets on our vacations. When I spy these treasures around the house long after a trip is over, wonderful memories of our visit flood back. I hope that we'll be able to return to Williamsburg again this year.

There are a few movies that I love to re-watch every few years. One of them is Open Range. I got the hankering to see it again last night and found that it was the perfect accompaniment to my latest knitting project, a Ramona Light Cardigan.
