Can't Believe It

It frickin' snowed last night. Yeah. This is especially nice since I'm headed to California week after next and that really looks good right now. Really. Was there really talk about Spring at my knitting group on Monday? Seriously?

I've finished a few things up lately. My sweater is done and I love it but haven't taken pictures of myself actually wearing it to post. But I finished this super-cute baby knit. The pattern is Design H from Little Sweet Peas (a sirdar booklet). I used leftover Cascade 220 superwash (off-white) which I thought would be enough but I ended up having to buy a second skein just for the sleeves. Poop. The edging is in leftover Cashsoft DK and the awesome little button is a tagua nut button we carry at the shop. Perfect match. I really like this pattern and the way the edging looks crocheted but isn't. I'll definitely be making more of these.

VD for Ravelers (hee!)

Sorry, couldn't resist. Did you know that (possibly for a limited time) you can send Valentine's day messages to your fellow Ravelers? The button is located on the 'about me' page for your friends. My personal fave is the pirate. Umm..pirates and Valentine's Day? Hell yes, they go together.

Not Dead (Undead?)

I haven't disappeared. I've just been hiding in my house trying not to die for the past week. Noah got a cold and was home sick for three days so I was trying to take care of the little one and partially take care of him. This resulted in colds for me and the baby. Mine is on a scale of massive proportions. Sore throat for three days. That disappeared. Fully congested head and lungs took its place only to be joined by rib-bruising coughing. Yay. I'm finally on the mend and have my voice (kind of ) back. And I'll just say that having a baby with a cold while you are sick as well sucks major ass. The only good thing was that while I had a full day of fever and chills she slept the whole day and only woke up to be changed and to eat. That's my girl. Oh, and there will be knitting posted soon.
