I think that since I have been accepted to Ravelry I forget about blogging because I am WAY too wrapped up in looking at what everyone else is doing!! Plus, there has not been a lot of knitting around here. We have been playing outside in the wagon and the pool, & the above photo is the only frog pool picture that I had that was decent enough for the web. All the rest show F baby's naked little hiney, which I think is so cute.
Speaking of which, my little baby is now 9 months old. Yikes, where did the time go?!?!?! As I write this post he is crawling all over the living room and talking up a storm. I have been working on planning his 1st birthday, but some things have been put on hold. I have been studying for my Cardiac Physics Registry that I am taking in 2 months. I don't have to pass the test to keep my job, but it will mean a small raise and make it easier to get hired elsewhere if I decide to change jobs. So I am just sucking it up and preparing to take the test. But I really hate it because it seems like a waste - learning a lot of things that I don't apply in my day to day job activities. But that's a rant for another day :) I would like to start posting with some regularity but I am so bad at it. How do all you mothers out there do it?

Happy One Week Birthday

It's Been A Long Time
About 2 weeks after we got married something happened, and a few weeks ago we found out that there will be a new little family member coming to OUR house this late November. That's right, I am pregnant!!!!! So I have really been feeling like CRAP lately, very very tired and nauseated. Working a 40-50 hours a week doesn't help matters any but I think that I may be ready to get back into the blogging world. Some days are better than others, & of course there has been NO knitting done due to lack of time & feeling bad. I hope it changes in this upcoming trimester because I have a lot of little things that I would love to make for the wee one. Especially once we find out in another month or so what we are having. I don't care as long as it is healthy :)

I Did IT!!!!!
Not only that, but new hubby wrecked his truck the night before our wedding and it is probably going to have to be totalled. I couldn't find my marriage license the day of our wedding at first, then realized it WAS in fact in my dash, just shoved waaayyyy up in there, and I ripped it.
Today we finally got power hooked up to our new home, but alas, the same stomach virus that infected my sister (also a bridesmaid) the day of our wedding has now infected hubby. I know in my vows I said in sickness & in health, but come on. 2 days and I am already giving out the Zofran and Imodium, and I have already had to clean up puke. I guess this is all just getting me ready to take the good with the bad. God bless him, I love him. Anyway, I think that the virus is starting to affect me now, so I am off to lay on the couch away from the new spouse, so we don't make it worse with the sickness. Next post hopefully will contain pics, either of the wedding or the house, and quite possibly KNITTING (which has really taken a backseat in my life lately. And no, the shawl is still on the needles.)

These are 12 skeins of Elann Devon in white and gray. I have already started a Swallow Tail Shawl from Interweave Knits Fall 2006 in the white, which I hopefully can finish and wear for my WEDDING!!! That's right, I am getting married in 2 months. I really would like to get it finished but if I don't it will still be something beautiful that I can keep. I am over halfway through the body repeats and once my batteries in my camera get charged I am going to post some pics of my WIP.
Lastly, the books. 50 Baby Booties To Knit by Zoe Mellor, which has the CUTEST baby booties and socks. I haven't knitted anything out of it yet but I have some future projects in mind and some stash to be utilized. Also I picked up 2 of the Yarn Harlot's books, which are both cute in her usual manner. Knitting Rules has lots of good tips about knitting, gauges, how to measure items for kids, adults, etc. and I know that i will be using this a lot in the future.
So, my upcoming wedding has been a major reason that I haven't been posting. We are also building a garage and putting an apartment above it so we have had all that to deal with. As previously mentioned I am working in the Swallow Tail Shawl from IK, a Shedir hat that I only have the ribbing done, and I thought I finished up an Odessa today. Now, the reason that I thought that I finished it was because once I got it on my head it's about an inch short because I CAN'T MEASURE!! So, now I am either going to have to rip back to before the decreases and make it longer or give it to someone with a smaller head. While giving it to someone with a smaller head sounds great, I know that I will be ripping back because I have an OCD personality like that. Oh, and remember the orange sweater I was working on months ago? Yeah, well I finished a sleeve and it was perfect in length, but when I tried it on S's arm it was WAY too long and hung off of his arm like something gross. So I ripped the whole entire thing up, and plan on doing a seamless sweater from Elizabeth Zimmerman. Everyone has been doing them in blogland, they look so easy, and I know own all of the EZ books (another online purchase). A lot of these things will have to wait because of the wedding. I plan on starting some socks and S's sweater after the wedding. So if my blogging continues to be sporatic, this is why. I am off to get ready to go out for some food, and I finally get to wear a sweater 'cause it has finally cooled off some in the South.
