Warm and fuzzy feeling

This gives me a warm and fuzzy:

pattern: Something Red by Wendy Bernard
yarn: Rowan Kid Classic, 8x50 g balls
needles: 4.5 mm Addi Turbo circular
size: M, adjusted for gauge

I really enjoyed knitting this. The pattern is well written and easy to follow. The fit is great, partly due to the fact that the sweater was easy to try on when it was in progress.
The other day, this appeared on the fridge door:

It reads: "Watch out because it will be slippery". Mr S. (5 yrs) decided to clean the kitchen floor on his own initiative. Afterwards he told me "Mom, now you have to give me one of those green things." That would be money -the green kind, as opposed to the metal kind. So he got paid $ 1, and I got a clean kitchen floor. Not a bad deal at all, if you ask me! I sure hope this is a precedent for times to come, and when he's 17, I don't need to tell him to go get a job to make some money. And as I'm doing all this knitting, I don't have to worry about house work!

Hei, sä olet palannut! Loistavaa! Saanko linkittää meidän blogista sun blogiin uudelleen (menetin jo toivoni...)?
Todella kaunis neule tämä harmaa, tykkäsin myös punaisesta ja jäänpäs odottamaan mysteeritakin uutta tulemista.

Kaunis ja pehmoisen näköinen tuo harmaa neule! Kiva, että jatkoit taas tätä bloggaamista, niin myös me ei-ravelrylaiset saamme ihastella aikaansaannoksiasi:)
