I am apparently not very observant on some things. I just found out, 2 years later, that there is a knit version of the Spiderman blankie. Yeah. I think once I finish with the crochet inspired version, I will knit one. All I have left to do is finish stitching on the web. As I am sitting here typing this, I just thought of a different way I could do it. I think I will go home and pull out what I have and do it the new way. Sounds like a ton of work wasted, but maybe it will be finished soon! Sunday I knit 1.5 dish cloths. It was just something to do. I need to work on finding new projects from my stash. My stash is not near big enough. I think that I need to work on an afghan out of scrap yarns. I also want to crochet a granny square afghan. This is purely thanks to Latisha since she is now crocheting! LOL! For the Dozen Shawls in 20Dozen, I am doing the easier of the two patterns, because I know I have needles for it. This is a sad reason to choose a knit, but I think the pattern is really pretty, too. I think I may start on that sooner rather than wait until January to cast on, but only because I have an infant and I am sure that I will have a difficult time keeping up anyway. I figure this is the only chance I will get. If I somehow manage to get it done before January, I will go ahead and do the other one.
I haven’t been spinning. It isn’t because I don’t want to, I just don’t have much fiber or much money to buy fiber, and even if I did, I don’t have much space to spin or much time. Lots of the word much in that sentence. I think that I need to sit down and schedule time to spin as well as to knit. Obviously flexible since I have an infant, but maybe 30 minutes a few days a week to spend immersed in my passions.
My handsome little man is 2 months old. I can hardly believe it. He weighed 9 lbs 3 oz and was 22 inches long at his appointment Thursday. I started back to work on Nov 30 (my birthday) and I am having a really hard time. I miss him so much. I know that he is in good hands when I am away, but I still miss him terribly. I am so glad that I got my tubes tied, because if I hadn’t we would end up with a whole houseful of kids. As crazy as people seem to think the Duggars are, I can totally understand why they would have that many kids. I am not in a financial position to have 19, 9 or even 4 kids, so I won’t even try. My heart goes out to the Duggar family after the loss of their baby recently. Jonathan is challenging. I am tired all the time, I have to plan everything around him and financially, I am WAY over my head, but I wouldn’t trade him for anything. I truly have the two best men in my life. One tiny little man and them my big handsome man. I am so lucky and feel so blessed to have both of them, even when they drive me a little batty!
