New mom here. Heh heh…
So, there’s been a bit of a gap in time since my last post. Oops. Not a good start to the new blog or the new year, but it’s certainly not for lack of material to blog about.
I’ve been knitting and tinking and knitting and frogging and knitting much to the dismay of my sanity on the Smaug socks. I feel like I will be 75% done these socks for the rest of my life! My reason for all of that craziness has been that I was picking these socks back up mid pattern and it took some trial an error to figure out where I was in the pattern notes. Having figured that out, I proceeded to misread the pattern several times, then question what I was reading, and then finally I watched Dr Who and got a little distracted, thus erroring out on the socks yet again. The socks are currently having a time out as a result.
Instead I finished up this little project. All I had to finish on this guy was his eyes, and assembly including the mouth embroidery. I can now send him off to his new home and the arms of one of DB’s first buddies.
Pattern: Frederick the Frog Prince ( from Knitted Toy Tales by Laura Long)
Yarn: Estelle South Pacific
Needles: 4mm DPNS
Status: DONE! Another WIP turned FO!
In the meantime, there hasn’t been a lot of time to knit as the three of us ended up with a doozy of a cold. Poor DB had his first cold and while he’s not the first baby to get one, it broke my heart to watch him sniffling and rubbing his eyes. There have been a few nights with less sleep than usual but we’re doing better after our week or so of suffering. I’m happy to report that DB is currently back to his usual sunny disposition again.
Next, if you are a new parent and love your tech gadgets and apps, I’ll have something next week for you, so stay tuned! I plan to review a great little App that was recommended to me via a Twitter contact and I think you’ll find it handy. #Rimshot
As for today, I’ve dubbed Friday: Foto Friday, so before you kick back for the weekend here’s a shot from my photoshoot with DB to celebrate his 4 Month-aversary last week. (I really hope this kid doesn’t develop any animal fiber allergies, cause these shoots are too much fun!)
Happy weekend, everyone!
