The mind of Mighty Momogus lies fallow. I'm limiting myself to MomogusKnits knitting right now, so I don't really have anything interesting to post about, knitting-wise. A post about gauge calculations and stitch counts would probably put you all to sleep. I had my annual spring yarn purge last week and yanked a lot of projects off the needles and sold a bunch of stuff on ebay. Aahhh, what a feeling! As someone whose livelihood depends on people wantonly buying yarn, I am a little reluctant to admit that I'd just like to knit out of my stash for a while.

We did have a nice weekend. The weather has been dementedly gorgeous - spring is relentlessly springing out all over. Gus had a baseball game on Saturday. The coach asked him last week if he'd like to catch and Gus said, "YES!!" He loved it. Apparently, it's hard to get kids to catch, because the coach asked him to catch on Saturday and Gus ended up catching the whole game. The coach kept asking him if he wanted to play out in the field and Gus kept saying no. He swaggered around in his gear between innings, yelling words of encouragement to teammates batting, a tiny adorable Bob Boone. Here he is, wielding the tools of ignorance with elan:

He also swatted a couple of sharp hits and scored twice.

After the game, we went to Gus's school fair where he sampled the various culinary delights:

Yeah, that's a good day.

Gus likes the catcher position!!
I have always loved that position - no, not as a player, just as an observer. It's been my fav one on a baseball team & the one I think to be the most important one.
Go, GusMan.
