OK...the picture you see with the books...those are NOT my books. Those would be Pete's books!! Not my type of reading. I am way more LOW-BROW. I just happened to have the little Milo vest sitting there when I went to take a picture of it. The only books I am able to get through are ones that are read to me that I have downloaded to my phone. In the middle of the night when I am nursing I listen to as much as I can. It seems Drew prefers me to stay sitting up when I nurse him and I need something to keep me in the game. An audio book is just the thing. I am listening to Grown Up Kind Of Pretty. It is pretty good so far. The author uses the "F" word a few times and I HATE that...but it is not enough to turn me off. I just don't get it!!
And my knitting has been slow going and very cherished. I love the feeling of making progress on something. I have loved every stitch I have made lately. My little Godson , Henry, is going to get his first hand knit tomorrow. I should have had it done Sunday...but since I was not yet finished I just wrapped up what I had done so far and promised the rest soon.
As soon as I finished his Milo vest I began another one for my little Drew. I love the first one I made while I was pregnant and it is such a simple knit. He wears is all the time!! The one I made for my Godson was knit with the Fibre Company Acadia...very sweet yarn. Drew's yarn is Grace by Louisa Harding. All yarn from my stash. I am not sure if I will ever be able to go into a knitting store again....so for now all projects are from yarn I already own. Kinda fun!! I know I can buy yarn online but I have no swift so I HATE winding it myself.
And the last picture of Lucy's toes..well that is the blanket I knit for Drew. It was really simple and I had already started it before he was born. I was not that motivated to work on it since I did not know if he was a boy. My plan was to start a pink and blue blanket and then finish whichever I needed....
I never started the pink!! I realize I need a better picture of it..wait. I think I have this one..
Today I have invited 3 moms over with their kids. I need some company. My kids need company. I miss my friends from Alabama. I miss my old Rosary Group. I miss people knowing me. I wrote that post about meeting people and I realized I needed to do more in that area myself. So I went to Target, got some new coffee mugs and fun creamers and I joyfully await my morning with other mamas.
Thanks for reading!!
