Baby Watch

So tonight is Sweet Pea's last chance to come out on her own--we'll see if she makes it! I do plan to go visit as soon as it's feasible, and I'll bring my laptop for quick blogging! Must remember to bring the camera cord as well as the laptop and the knitting. Is this the modern grandmother's new-baby kit?

Today was a knitty day, and a good time was had by all. I spent the time working on Lady E III, and didn't think it was particularly blogworthy. Madgik was going to help me with my Felted Clog sole, but I left the pattern at home. Dim Sum Mary was working on finishing her adorable grey booties by sewing on snaps. Let's just say that snaps are a royal pain and leave it at that. Patty had socks, and Barbara is almost done with a wonderful grey SWS scarf. I'll let them show the pictures, though!

We finished up with a trip out to Unraveled to check out their Malabrigo and other goodies--they are having a sale this weekend, so it was good to make a scouting trip. You might want to check them out if, of course, you are within driving distance of Monrovia!

I spent the evening watching Project Runway and Kitchen Nightmares (so good to know there are kitchens worse than mine!) and sorting magazines into bags. Got a whole lot more ready to move out, and while I will miss my old friends, I really do need the room. I've got a couple more "nests" to go through, and then I'll take a picture of the whole batch as they move on out.

I will leave you with this darling picture, which comes courtesy of Jigzone.com. They will even email you a new puzzle every day, or you can go to the website to work puzzles. I have to admit, I'm addicted. I keep trying to convince myself that they're good practice for keeping the ol' brain from turning into complete jelly--and much much easier to handle around cats! I do love doing jigsaw puzzles--and, I'm sure you'll be surprised to know, I have a great many of them--but there's something very frustrating about getting 1000 pieces laid out on the table all ready to go, and having a large fluffy dervish come up and roll around in them for attention! With the online ones, they do bat at the pieces but nothing happens!

Unraveled *sigh* I miss that place and especially Beach Knitting, which was equally awesome, but more in my 'hood.

Fortunately, I found an equivalent shop here in Pgh. Now if I could just find a quilt shop that felt like "home" ...

No snaps for the snaps, I say! Helloooo baby!

What is a felted clog stole?

Am continuing to think good thoughts for Sweet Pea and for a smooth arrival!

For Sarah-Hope: it's the sole of the slipper. I'm hopeless at reading that pattern, for some reason; maybe now that the baby is here safely I can relax and concentrate?
