Being born third sucks.

Quick, picture-less update. I just cast on for a baby sweater for my upcoming nephew, my stepsister's third child. I have absolutely no time to be doing this, but I knit stuff for the other two, so I feel like it's only right that I knit something for this baby. He can't help that he's born third. He's due February 21st, but my stepsister's last two kids were born exactly two weeks early, so we expect him around the 7th. Considering that Hunter's 3rd birthday is the 9th, there could be some really interesting sibling rivalry for new baby boy P.

I finished the clogs for Bob, but they have yet to be felted.

I also found a purple kimono sweater that I started knitting for Charlotte, and I'm still trying to finish a little gray stockinette hat for her. Luckily hats are less of on issue right now, because Jackie found some in the attic at the house. She also found a couple sweaters that Charlotte can wear, too. One was Matt's, one was Heidi's.

The current project for me is that I'm midway through a knitpicks shawl in Gossamer Carribean, I think. I am hoping to get back to it soon, though my priorities really are to finish up some stuff for Charlotte.

I hope to take some pictures soon, and get this stuff into Ravelry.

Resurrecting this blog from the dead.

Well, then. I have decide for Ravelry purposes, and for my own fun, I'm going to start keeping a knitting blog again. I've gone back and forth for a while - I used Typepad when it first came around and really enjoyed it, but once I had to pay for it was was less excited about it. Blogger is so much more exciting again, since it has commenting capability now, which it didn't when I started, and it's easier to edit the templates and add photos. With all those features, I think I'll have no problem getting started again. I kind of wanted to keep this blog the way it was, as a 5 years ago kind of snapshot, but I also want it to be more usable, too. I will be editing and updating as the weeks go on.
