Seven Weeks


Seven weeks old today! We had our first official play date where the four babies completely ignored each other. Although there was one minor crying jag that broke out collectively. On the highly unscientific bathroom scale he's almost 12 pounds and has grown out of a few clothes already.

Progress Report

Gotta start with a picture of course. Brandy came to visit this week from LA by way of Kentucky. You know a good friend who will not only wash your dishes but also is willing to hold a screaming gassy baby.


Sock progress!
I finished the Pomatomus Socks! Yarn I dyed in the Summer of Socks color. I followed the pattern right up until the toes. Then I continued the pattern all the way to the end. Don't you like the cardboard sock blockers I cut out last night for the photo shoot?

Also finished the first blue sock!


I will start my Rogue soon, but I couldn't resist this yarn from Knitpicks. Probably Jaywalkers since it's striping.

It's the new Felici yarn in the Hummingbird color.

What Else??

Babies and Knitting what else have I got to talk about these days?

First of course a picture, taken today. The Monkey was a pre-birth Christmas present. We knew it would be bigger than the baby, but he's a month old and it's still huge! Things are going very well, he's a really happy baby most of the time.


Sock progress! This is the first picture of the blue socks that has come anywhere close to the real color.


I got a little distracted from the socks in the last couple of days. First I got that itch and had to start thinking about my next sweater project. Yesterday I downloaded Rogue (all 19 pages of it, Gulp!)and bought the yarn, hopefully I'll finish the Pomatomous socks while I wait for the right needles to arrive.

And second, I finally managed to open an Etsy store to sell my yarn.

I've got 9 skeins listed at the moment, and also my yarn bowls are there. Pass the word!
