So, it has been a long time since I have blogged....Things have been busy here. I say that like they will ever not be busy anymore. Little C is doing fantastic. She is sleeping a little better thanks to the discovery that she has acid reflux pretty bad and is now on Zantac. We are all a lot happier. I have decided that this is the most fun age so far, but that said, everyone tells me that from now on, every age is the best for different reasons.
I haven't had a ton of time to knit...mostly just on my way to and from my parents house and on any other car rides that we take. So, here is where I am:
-The Branching Out Scarf never made it in time for Mother's Day, but it is now finally done! Well, the knitting is done...all that is left is the blocking. It will now be a Christmas gift. Yay, I am done my first Christmas gift.
-Mock Cable Socks: I have turned the heel on them. Actually, I did this this morning while I was driving home from night shift...well, sitting in traffic with the car in park. There was a trash truck that caught on fire. I sure am glad that I had my knitting in my car!
-Apricot Jacket: So that is another story. To be perfectly honest... I have had such trouble picking it up. I don't have a lot of time to concentrate for a period of time all at once. I have been just knitting a little here and there. The other night, I finally got some good knitting done on it. I found that I need to do the left front over again because of a mistake. I am all ripped out, now I just need to reknit from about halfway on. I finished the right front though and it turned out good. Here is the progress:
So, what is next? I always have to have at least two projects going at once. I get bored easy. February baby sweater...in Flake Cotton. What a lovely yarn. I can't wait to see what it turns out like. I will be starting this or at least working on it at Tuesday's Pitch in Stitch where the Phillies meet the Reds.
And also, to my knitting pen pals....your letters will be in the mail by the end of this week. I am so enjoying getting to know you!
