She offered to watch the baby while DH and I go out but Jessica's not great on her own that late, so maybe we'll just grab a drink?

And I definitely want to work on the Ravensong today! For a medium pair of shorties, how many short rows do y'all work in? I have 3 in and the pattern calls for 5 spread out. Does that sound about right?
Dev, I do the zig zag short rows and then an additional 2 sets. I like LOTS of short rows.

Can someone help?? My peppermint patty custom is for board shorts for summer. The LO is 3 weeks right now and measuring 16" waist and rise and 6.5" inseam. What would you size this up to for summer?

I want these, but they are too big for DD http://hyenacart.com/beauxbottoms/index.php?c=0&p=55428

Heather, the 16/16 sounds like the newborn is quite big! I have little experience in predicting but I'd say that with summer 3-4 months away, that baby will probably be in 18/18. And if not quite 18 on the rise, I think that a 5-6 month old baby will have big time growth spurts, so a folded-down waist won't stay folded down for long.

yea, I am pretty sure the rise / waist should go to 18. I am not sure about the inseam though. I almost think it should stay at 7 since they are board shorts. Or even 6 just in case he doesn't grow length wise that much.

anyone want to see Ravensong shorties WIP? I had to scrap the first version b/c I was knitting the waistband while we were out looking at homes and I made several errors.

Here's v2:

Re: Wool you be my Valentine? Share the wooly love Saturday!

Good morning! I bought the Tree Huggers. I can't believe those beauties are coming to live here. Annie is so close to waking so it should work out great -- I wouldn't have her crawling in them.

I finished her longies last week and have been very slow about starting my next project, which is an a-line Juliette skirty with some Elliebelly. I am just on the waist yet.

Life has been waaaaay stressful. We are going through the roughest time so far in our marriage (been married six years). So many challenges. So I'm just drained. The challenges aren't about our marriage per se, just crap we have to deal with together.

Annie learned how to say "Mih" yesterday for milk (she had been doing the baby sign) and now she wants to nurse ALL the time because of the novelty of self-serve. LOL. It's very cute.

I'm a little nervous about my stocking this morning, but excited too. I didn't end up listing the rainbow longies because I didn't get a chance to make the diaper to go with them. So, I'm trying to decide whether to do another stocking this month, or hold onto them until fall.

No big plans for today except to clean house (there is a huge pile of sewing scraps under the kitchen table) and work on the gwion shorties. We went out for sushi last night, the first time I had had sushi since before I was pregnant. We had a blast. Roe and Joe sat up like big boys in the high chairs and they ate sushi! I gave them unagi, and they loved it! They also tried the pickled ginger (loved it) and the wasabi (they weren't quite sure what to think of that) and because the restaurant is actually a thai/chinese/japanese place and not strictly sushi, they gave us a bowl of those fried noodles you get with chinese takeout, and the boys ate way too many of those. But it was fun.
That sounds like fun! Love the thunder set and the mermaid set on your cart. They turned out adorable!

Re: Wool you be my Valentine? Share the wooly love Saturday!

Good Morning ladies. Happy valentines day.
I made cinnamon sticky buns for breakfast and have "best baked beans in the west" in my crockpot cooking. I have plans to work on the shorties I started today.
Is anyone on Crunchy Cooperative board? I can't get on for the last 2 days it keeps giving me an error message. Anyone else having problems?
