Another 7 weeks


Well the Lily pie is stuck in that fucking harness for another 7 weeks. The Ortho said both hips are sitting "normal" but he's worried about one not staying that way. Damn it Damn it! Do you have any clue how hard it is to dress a baby in one of those things!!! It sucks. Well other then the hips Lily is doing great, she's pretty much stopped being a screaming mess all the time. Gooey has a cold...she sounds so cute when she talks with the stuffy nose! I'm hoping she doesn't get Lily or I sick...but I'm sure we will.

Now on to the crafting. I finished a pair of super cute felted boots for Lily.
006 Here is a pic before I felted them...I'll get a pic of them finished soon. This was my first real crochet pattern, not that the plushies weren't real, it just didn't make a difference if you messed up a little.


I'm also working on a shawl. It's Vernal Equinox Shawl Surprise. I wasn't planing on making this shawl, but when I was the first 2 finished clues I jumped in. I'm 6 rows from finishing clue 3. The picture was at the end of clue 2. I'm really enjoying the KAL.

I'm still working on a pair of socks for myself and my FIL. Pics when I'm finished.

Wow I need to blog more...

I'm not sure what I do with my time anymore...No wait I lie, Lily takes up most of it! She's doing well, 13lbs now. She goes tomorrow to get another U/S on her hips and we'll find out how they are next Friday. She's getting better with the screaming, the kid just doens't like to sleep. When she's not about to burst she's smiling and laughing. Gotta say, she's pretty fucking cute!

Well I reopened my shop last week, only one skein of handspun sock in there. I knitted some stuff and listed it. Need to build the capital to start dying again and I just don't have the time to card or spin yet. Here's a couple of things in the shop....

014 and Lily Pie

Lily will be 2mo tomorrow....I think I'm starting to understand her. She is nothing like her sister was. Trinity is doing much better, it's hard on her not having Mommy all to herself anymore. I've been thinking about reopening the yarn shop...I miss it a ton. When it reopens I'm going to start off with batts. I haven't touch my wheel in forever so no Handspun sock. I feel so bad for her, she just sitting upstairs getting dusty in an office I really need to clean! Oh and it will be a wile for the Handpainted sock too, I don't have any base yarn...I've been thinking of switching it anyway. Oh and I need to build capital.... So I'm pretty much starting all over again. But that's ok I want to make some changes and it will be fun. Well I better get off this thing and get some stuff done wile the little one is sleeping!
