I'm so excited to be a part of this year's Knitting and Crochet Blog Week initiated by Mimi over at Eskimimi Makes. For day 1 we are to choose our "House", like my favorite wizarding school! How could I not love that idea? Mimi came up with 4 great houses but I have to say that as soon as I saw them I knew EXACTLY which one I would sort myself into; even before reading what the mascot symbolized. After reading all the attributes of the house I still think the one I first saw is perfect for me. This is my crochet house:
Don'tcha love it! A manatee!! ha ha ha ... This is the house for me!
In July of 2010 me, my hubby and daughter rented a condo in Titusville, Florida that was right on the Indian River Lagoon (Intracoastal Waterway). We planned to stay a week and catch one of the last Space Shuttle launches. Sadly, it was postponed and we didn't get to see the launch! Although while we were there we rented 3 kayak's and were able to launch them from the private dock. We were told there were manatee in the waterway and not to be afraid of them but they are very curious creatures and may actually bump the side of your boat if they are near.

Now you know why I just had to be in the manatee house! I feel that manatees and me have a kinship. We both were curious of each other and the scared the bejeezus out of each other. ha ha ha
Happy 4KCBWDAY1 everyone and enjoy the knitting and crochet blog love this week!
