Baby stuff! May 15, 2009

Alright, so I am skipping my April news post for now to quickly post some pics of the baby stuff I have been working on. Some very good friends of mine are going to be having an unkown sex baby in August so I have been trying to find some great colors to work with that aren’t too male or female since they insist on it being a secret even to themselves 🙂
Here’s the two sweaters I have done so far-I’m currently working on a third. All from a Sirdar book I picked up, I’m not sure what number- I forget! Both are made with Sirdar Snuggly DK, which I am totally in love with!

I picked out this color first, and then Chad helped me pick out buttons to go with it. I love it! I’m using the left overs from this with a dark teal to make a striped sweater right now.


Then I decided I really wanted to use these apple buttons Kate got me for Christmas so I dragged Chad on a 3 hour walk to the yarn store and some other places and he picked out this lovely green to go with them.

I knit a Lucha Libre for my brother in law for his birthday to add to the gift we already had gotten him. It was pretty funny.


I went out for my first jog of the year-I held up better than I had last year. Likely because a lot of it was trail running and had ups and downs rather than just running flat on concrete. I haven’t gotten out again but I want to.


I dyed some Cascade superwash with tea. It was nice and easy to do and the color came out really nice. Not sure what I want to knit with it yet but I suspect it will be baby related since I am in baby knit mode for my friends Keith and Krista.
 

So sorry May 5, 2009

I’m so sorry I haven’t been around lately-there’s been a lot going on(mostly bad) and I haven’t been able to get myself to update. I have a tonne of pics and can fill in the blanks so things are up to date-hopefully I can get that all up soon. I’d do it now, but I started a new job yesterday and I have to get my ass to work!
