poor pixie. Em has been dealing with a wet cough for a week now. Really need to pull out the nebulizer to see if that will help her

love the wip pictures and the finished pics.

sorry about working late Dani and Karyn

oh no Karyn I've had a few "redo" days that I just want to rewind and try it again.

sounds like a yummy dinner shannon, even if I don't like fish or lamb or alcohol








think I'll co a HH today, was going to do it last night but I was tired. Then I need to make a monkey bday shirt for my niece for this weekend. And a shirt for Emily's outfit. And then 4 owl stuffies for a swap (need those done by wednesday)

playpark this morning, but we will most likely come home after dropping Steven off at school to "wake up" before heading to playpark.

okay doing 2 at a time with the hh...I'd just have them both on a dpn and work with two different skiens correct? Figure that will help it go quicker and I won't get bored


I just use both ends of the same skein but otherwise I just put them on the same dpn and do them at the same time. Makes for effortless same length cords cause I do not pay attention when I knit them I just do them on auto pilot and check my length every once in a while.

I should do this..I always just hold one cord up to the other..mine are probably never exact--ah well, just cords.

Sounds yummy! Love ahi

So definitely an experience... but sounds like one we wouldn't try too hard to get into
Yeah that sounds interesting, but ...

Should be the same as 2 at a time socks, just a smaller tube. There are lots of tutorials out there for 2 at a time socks, or even 2 at a time longies legs if you google fu a bit

Pixie is still in rough shape but she was only up 4x last night instead of 6. Pi on the other hand caught it and woke up screaming and sobbing because he couldn't breathe at least that many times too

Yea I just can't wrap my head around that. If I ever need to I'll be able to but right now it's baffling, lol.

You CO 4 stitches from one end of the cake. You CO 4 stitches from the other end of the cake. You icord those first 4 with the correct working yarn, switch working yarns and icord the other 4. Repeat to proper length.

Re: KAL ~ Knit for the love of it! Sept 30 - Oct 6

Morning! Going to be a busy one today. My partner at work is out, as well as our "student" therapist so I'm flying solo and have a crapton to do on top of therapy. I'll be scarce today. Bleh for Mondays!

On a happy note, today is DH and my anniversary! He got called into work early (4AM) so he sent a cute text since he wasn't able to call when I woke up. We'll probably celebrate on Friday...not sure if I can get someone to watch the kids so it might be a family dinner. Thinking Italian.

Need to schedule E's follow up with his ped (I'm secretly hoping I don't need an appt. to pay a co-pay and have the doc say he's okay). No bad swelling and he wasn't in pain. He actually thought it was neat to be in the hosptial ER just like his favorite episode of Bubble Guppies.

Hope to get to through the gusset of my ls longies at lunch and post a WIP pic later. I think it might be more of a true small than nb size, but I love how the colorway is working up.

I learned SO much from this hat... but Mr. Dude has not taken it off since it was finished so I would call it a WIN!
Aw, so sweet! Great job!

Warning: possibly TMI>>>>And to top things off I have some kind of vag infection again. At least I figured out what I am allergic to. A few days ago we used new lube and it is def that. Note to self.....only astrogllide for me! So I have to call the GYN in 20 minutes and see if they can get me in.
Hope today gets better and that infection goes away. We can only use astroglide too. I don't get infections, but I'm allergic to other lubes...lets just say being itchy and burning "down there" in unscratchable places is not fun...

Would bleach get the marker off the diaper?

Never thought to do 2aat with a hh hat. Talk about banging out projects efficiently! I bet that would really help with pooling too. Genius!

Reminds me of college days, minus the German and polka bands

Doh! Genius again! I bet you could do TWO hh in 2 days if you did 2aat icords (twice), then put all 4 on a long cable and did 2aat hh.
