This evening, LaToya & her handsome son Matti came over for a play-date. It was a good time! Matti is one month younger than Luke & they play together SO well! LaToya is one of the moms from my "Due Date Group" on Diaperswappers. I often begin sentences, "one of my due-date-group-moms ....." and she is one of those lucky Due in Nov. '09 ladies!
The boys played & played while LaToya & I chit-chatted away the evening. When it was just about time to go home, LaToya & I got down to business to work out a trade we're doing. I'm fairly sure I'm making out like a bandit here, but it's all good!

Weird out-take..who's eye is that? I don't know, but "we'll" be watching you!
LaToya asked me if I would sew for her, longies, shorties, soakers, diapers, and wipes, in exchange for her wool stash and possibly some shorties!
As I am DESPERATELY longing to learn to knit to decrease the cost of MY wool stash (I mean, Luke's longies & shorties....) I was eager to take her up on the offer.
In January, I'm going to be taking a "Learn to Knit" class at a local yarn store (LYS hereafter). I'm also going to start going to the "Stitch & Bitch" club that they run twice a week. I'll be able to knit or crochet & get help/guidance/support from others who enjoy yarn crafts! (I won't be going twice a week, they just offer it 2x a week. I'll be lucky to go once a month.)
So, in addition to several yards of flannel and a single scrap of the original Ooga Booga LaToya left me her wool stash!
