look! a sweater! well, almost. i've successfully joined the sleeves and the body on ysolda's coraline and finished up the raglan decreases. now i'm ready to attack the smocking in knit group tomorrow! if we're lucky, we'll finally be able to sit out on the patio at our local library.
what have i been doing in the meantime?
taking over the world!
for some reason i got it into my head that i wanted to play risk. to be fair, i'd never played it before. ever. somehow i completely missed that boat during middle school. so we picked up a board and battle-ready hats and set to!
lots of instruction-reading and head-scratching ensued. maeve watched over the proceedings and tried to make a move or two herself. you see, unfortunately with this new board you need a minimum of three players, and she wasn't following the rules. i think i managed to conquer venezuela before we gave up.
luckily, b found instructions for two-player risk on the interwebs so we'll have to give it another shot! world domination? some other weekend.
