Oh man! What a job!

We have hardwood floors through every room in our house but the bathroom and kitchen. I love them... but we do really go through a lot of slippers.

Morning girls!

I'm about 50% complete with the toddler republic hat & truckin' along. I'll have FO pics probably by nap time. Then I'll be starting on the "Cabin Fever" longies (my teal variegated yarn) & hope to have some WIP shots before I have to go to work tonight.

I cannot decide what to do with myself. I think Im burnt out on knitting already . I was trying to do the headband last nite but I just couldnt.
I think I should just scrap it and get started on some shorties for Saedra.

Yeah, I find when I get "burned out" it's just cause it's not something I feel like knitting.

Totally. Unless it's a pressing custom, i never work on a project that doesn't interest me.

Me too.



I was pretty burned out on longies. But since this Cestari order took so long... now I think I'm ready to go back. They're such an easy/fast knit after working on something foreign to me.

I still have another month and a sock takes about a day. So... it's not too bad. I'd rather have them perfect anyway. The first one had some minor issues that I wasn't going to look back on... but now after this development, I have an excuse to fix them.
Glad you are on the upswing! It's been a rough winter...

Aack sorry about the sock but I'm glad you can fix the little things that were bugging you. I'm like that - can't let things go.

Oh, yeah, I found out I am gonna be blessed with another grandchild this July. Yipee!!
Congratulations!!! Cables are so easy - I love knitting them! I would try knittinghelp.com for a cable video just to refresh your memory.

I'm halfway done w/ my Ravensong shorties waistband! Can't wait to get to the colorway.
Yay for sleep!!! I hate knitting waistbands. LOL Though I am doing WT longies with no contrast and the waist swirled in the opposite direction of the body and I don't love it. I might frog the whole thing and use a different pattern altogether.

Ooh i can't wait to do the downstairs in hardwood. We are waiting for the kids to be a bit older and less prone to falling down.

I just got the email my federal return was accepted!!!!!!!! Now I need to start planning for it.
I told dh Im getting Saedra some more diapers as Im sick of washing every 2 days and I can cut down our clothing budget for all 3 girls by just buying a few things of yarn to knit up for Saedra and some cheapy shirts. We are going to put 4k away for our cushion and then Im going to try to negotiate with Ford Motor Credit so I can pay off my car and be done with this loan.

Re: Baa Baa Black Sheep Have You any WOOL... Tuesday

Okay now I'm caught up! Good morning everyone!

DH is home all week and it's great!! He got the 3yo on the bus this morning, I got a shower, dishwasher is going, diapers are in the wash. He even mostly folded 2 loads of laundry last night that I forgot was on the bed!

I'm thinking about asking for another growth u/s today b/c last week the baby slipped down some days in growth and I have a clotting disorder (my first was growth restricted and emergency section at 36 weeks) so I'm a bit paranoid...

I'm struggling with the WT longies now.

Honestly, the waistband swirled (she doesn't like trim) but the body is swirling the opposite direction. It just doesn't look good IMO. I might frog and try the Freckles pattern for her though I think it will be too big for her LO in a large... Anyone who knits with the Freckles pattern, how does the short row section work out with a bulkier yarn? I'm using Rambouillet and getting 4st/inch. I'm trying to do a large. Will I have enough room in the back for short rows with a bulky yarn or do you need to cut out some of the short rows?
