Silly Saturday

Okay - Mom and Auntie Anna went to a museum and were all silly today. Mom did it all with a limp.. Clumsy as she is she almost fell yesterday - and tried severing her little toe from the foot by putting it on the wrong side of a metal bar (well - wrong side if you want it to go along with the rest of the foot..). It's all nice and swollen and bloody.. But they already had plans, and she couldn't bare the thought of sitting with her leg up ALL day..

She's done some sitting too, though.. So she knitted up something to keep her cell phone (or mp3player) in..

Pink......or red.. Neither turned out perfect, but that's what you get when you make up a pattern as you go. The first one (red) is a bit too wide, while the pink one ain't all that bad but the "flip" part could have been wider (that's what you get for over compensating).

Now they've even got little handles!

So let's see these two grown women at the museum acting all mature:

Auntie walking the tight rope.. BOL.. And ignore Mom's gibberish.. (That's Norwegian for ya!)
Now do you think they caused a leak?
(Mom's note: this is an exhibit on the environmen changes and challenges - and as you might guess it's playing on the increasing water levels among other things.)

Mom playing with colour shadows!

Tomorrow is our Constitutional Day so hopefully we'll squeeze in a little celebration (I really just want some ice cream!). We were planning a hike, but no such luck..

Hi, Bajas!
My mom is not good following patterns when she knits! And the results are not always the best!
Sure your Mom and your Auntie had fun at the Museum!
I agree. A celebration like that deserves ice cream!
Kisses and hugs

Wow, your mom mustn't like that toe if she tried to sever it. Thank goodness that didn't happen. The museum looks like a lot of fun.
