Look Ma!

No cable needle!  Not only is it my first cable project, but I'm not even using a cable needle! Thanks to Michele!!  I'm using a pattern from Knitting for Baby.  The aran pullover is too cute to resist.  I've been able to get a lot done in the last week or so.  Surprising since e doesn't get the concept of napping anymore.   

Being away from the blog I felt like I had tons to write about, but now that I'm mind goes blank.  I just read about this and grieved for a family.  I can't imagine.  Some times I can when E is feeling well.  I don't believe his disease will kill him any day soon, but the long term out look feels dark sometimes.  But the polly anna in me turns around and looks at the brighter side of life.  e is healthy, growing and happy.  That's a pretty good life.  

On the spinning front I'm still working on finishing plying the bobbins.  I'm on my last one and I'm itchy to get started on another project.  I have so many fibers to choose from I can't wait!

On the Knitted Wit front things are a little stalled.  I've been posting new treats in etsy which is always good.  I'm about to start offering new products once I place an order with a new company.  Some draw backs are I haven't dyed anything in a month, and I'm on the waiting list for the Madrona Fiber Arts Retreat.  It's great to be considered but it takes a lot of planning to get ready for a show.  Especially with e.  So, I don't know if I should wait to do this show next year (if I can get in) and focus on other things.  Like BSG, Sock Summit, Knit-Crochet Show, OFFF and Soar.  All those things sound like they could keep me plenty busy!  

e is in his little scooch chair (his wheels) and he just discovered an electric outlet that he can't figure out how to touch.  Time to baby proof I think!  
 A dear friend gave us another amazing hat.  The photo shoot was a little tough because he's so wiggly.  Expect to see more pics of this hat!  Thanks Sarah!  I can't remember if I posted the first hat.  Can you believe how much he's grown!
I think I've rambled enough.  


  1. What a handsome little guy! The hat looks dashing on him.

  2. ahhh! He is so handsome, more everyday... and You are an amazing momma... keep up the good work lady!
