Good news on the knitting front: my Ravelympics Baby Surprise Jacket is all knitted up! Right now it is a floppy piece of fabric waiting to be photographed and then seamed. Once that is done, I will be going out to buy buttons. We're not sure of the sex of the baby just yet, so maybe the more economical thing to do would be to sew it up and wait to buy buttons. The jacket so far is beautiful. I'm using Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport in Confetti, which is white, light blue, darker blue, purple, and pink. It's probably best suited for a girl, but I think a newborn boy could wear it fine. I'm going to use the buttons to hopefully clarify gender. I used one skein and part of the second, so I'd like to do a hat and booties to match.
So, doesn't it figure that the day I get up early, the kids sleep late? Usually they wake me up around 6:30. So I get up at 6 and they are just now waking up at 7:45. I really need to get up early more often.
