I love when I am finished knitting the largest part of a sweater. It feels like I am in the home stretch. Here is Chris' Cobblestone sweater knit to the arm holes and the start of the 1st sleeve, which BTW is almost done too:
Not the best artistic photo, but hey, I was in a rush.
In my girls' hockey news, this weekend my younger daughter was informed she has made the 8 and under rep team!!! Yeah for Maddie. She is 6 years old and is playing 'up' at a rep level. I am so proud of her. She is over the moon excited. Now she gets to play on the same team as her sister.
Both Maddie and Julianna play on a houseleague team that is coached by my husband, but after three houseleague games, J was moved up to play with the 9 and 10 year division. So, we are happy that they get this chance to play on the same team. That was our intent, however, over the summer J found this burst of confidence, and dominated the game. Not fun for her and not fun for the other little girls. When the score is 20 to 1 for your team, and one girl scored half of the goals, you just feel bad for all. Including J's feelings. It was way too easy for her, and now that has moved up to play with the older girls, she is much happier!
I am one lucky hockey mom - two girls that LOVE the sport and know that if you work hard, it pays off. This weekend Maddie finally got to realize what I was saying was true.
Hope your weekend was great.
