3/4 of the way done with my first ornament...love the quick turnaround and instant gratification. That will probably wane after the first few, lol.

Boys on another adventure...chicken sizzling on the stove. Watching water boil for noodles is not fun..

Hi
I've been busy lately. I've been trying to read but haven't been posting.

Erica, I'm so excited DH is entertaining the idea of a another.

Carolyn, both my kids when little didn't like to be cuddled and hated being swaddled. Even the day they were born they would fight their way out of being swaddled. If they were upset I would lay them on a blanket on the floor. They are becoming more cuddly as they get bigger.

Katie, love that hh.

I love the owl woolies.

I finally started the last sleeve on the cable yoke sweater. Hopefully it won't take too long.

I listed a bunch of longies on the local cloth diaper board. People are fighting over them. It's kinda funny. They seem like good prices but I will be making more then if I were to list them since shipping it so expensive.

Re: KAL Oct 7-13 *Knit the funk away!*

Just wanted to pop in here and say HELLO! I am a very new knitter. Just finished my very first pair of capris (too bad they didn't fit) but they did turn out better than I expected. I just taught myself to knit about 2-3 weeks ago and the capris were my first major project. Hopefully the next longies/capris/shorties (whichever I make) will fit better and my short rows won't be so gnarly.

JELLY! My mom used to make that when we were growing up and it was my favorite.

We went and got a new vacuum cleaner. Project remodel the upstairs begins this weekend. I'm looking forward to it and dreading it at the same time. Pixie found and re-stole my FASC, she was wrapping it around herself and twirling all evening, and made sure it went to the library and the store with us, wrapped around her in her stroller and car seat.

Welcome! If my short rows were gnarly (holey) I stitch up the back to reinforce. Just make sure to follow the yarn "lines.". The more you knit the better those short rows get. Keep going amd great job!
