Sneezes and Pants

All my well laid out plans failed this weekend.  I woke up Sunday morning with a grody cold.  I was decommissioned for a few days.  The weather hasn't helped.  The sky is blue, the sun is bright, the air is FREEZING!  So no dyeing, again.  I have managed to get a little spinning done.  I even washed a few skeins.  
Today I feel like I accomplished a major task.  I made pants.  For the baby.  I bought the pattern and a lot of fabric.  I wasn't too nervous that I wouldn't be able to do it, but I probably shouldn't have bought so much fabric with out trying out the pattern first.  Success.  If the pants don't give you a tummy ache from how sweet they are, I don't know what will.
It's also pretty amazing I can get anything done on that desk.  Avert your eyes from the clutter and appreciate the pants.  This was the newborn size.  The patter is Britches and Bloomers.  I connected to a review about the pattern.  Very thorough.  

I've also been plugging away at knitting bibs.  Such a mindless knit.  I'm also working on a dale sweater that I mentioned before.  I'm a little concerned that the neck isn't going to be big enough.  I would hate to make the sweater and not be able to get it over his head.  So the project is stalled until I make it to my lys for a second opinion.  I also just bought a pattern for tiny baby socks.  I made a few of these in the past but I can't find the pattern or the socks I knit.  A little trouble some.  But looking at my desk it's probably not surprising that I can't find something!
