Whew!!Good grief - I started this post on Friday. And it's not even that impressive. SIGH.
Actually, the only reason I was able to start a post at all was because of my new Valentine... meet Mr. Swingy. I LOVE Mr. Swingy. Mr. Swingy has enabled me to do such amazing things as use the bathroom, eat breakfast, and even knit sometimes! We had put off buying a swing until we had a sense of whether Baby A would use one... but after a few nights of Dad serving as the human swing, we decided it was worth the $$. I was all set to order one online, but S suggested we swing by Target just in case they had one in stock (saving himself a few nights of sore arms!) So we did, and there was Mr. Swingy... on clearance for 75% off. It was meant to be.
Thanks to Mr. Swingy, I was finally able to finish the second pair of socks for S (baby included for scale). I am so tired of knitting socks that I absolutely had to take a break, even though S still needs several more pairs to refill his sock drawer.
So I've started a sweater. It's a Cobblestone (IK Fall 2007) for S, knit out of some blue faced leicester that I dyed at least 3 times until I finally got a color that I liked. I hope it turns out well - I'm about halfway done with the first sleeve, and so far S still likes the way it looks!
