Goodness! Has it really been two weeks since my last update? You'll have to forgive me. School has started and after getting up at the crack of dawn and getting the older boys out of the house..
first day of school
and explain to a certain someone why he can't go too...
I'm the one~woman entertainment show for the baby. By evening time I'm exhausted and my knitting is suffereing. Not to mention it's hot.as.hades. Maybe I'm a wimp, but for the love of pete could you throw a girl a breeze or something? I tell ya, both boys had flag football practice yesterday and I thought I was going to die. Yeah, yeah, so what I complained about the cold, rainy weather back in Maryland. Truth is I could use a raindrop or two right about now.
I have been knitting some though.
I'm at the point where I'm ready to separate the front and back. If I could ever get a minute I might actually finish. I just need a solid hour or so of knitting time. I've also started on what I fear is going to be a seriously boring knit.
That us there is the Manly Sweater (or Very Manly. Or whatever) from Stitch n Bitch. In gray without the stripes. Just miles and miles of ribbing.
But what can you do? At least I can take my time because I can guarantee he won't be wearing a wool sweater anytime soon :o) Oh, a note about the yarn...it's the new Swish superwash fron Knitpicks. So far so good. I swatched (Hi Amy!) and ran it through the washer and dryer on a ragular setting with some towels. Still looks great! It's nice to knit with too, although I'm not sure I'd want to use plastic needles.
I've also been shopping! When it's so hot you spend a bit more time online and then you start checking out yarn sales and before you know it there is no more room in the apartment to stash stuff (Luckily for me the house should be done by the end of the month!). So my 'to knit' list is growing. Maybe I'll update my sidebar this weekend with a list of stuff I have waiting in the wings?
Oh well, the boss is up from his nap and ready for action. Hope you all have a great weekend. We're going to see Monster House and attempt to stay cool.
