What's been going on

First off, a very belated thank you to Parikha of the brown sheep for sending me this book. I won it in a blog contest several weeks ago. I've been reading Parikha's blog for a long time now, check it out if you've never read it. The book isn't very inspiring, but it will be good to refer to if I'm in the mood for a good basic knit. Plus you can never have too many knitting books, right?

I've got two sleeves for the Pea Pod baby sweater. This project has been sitting around for awhile while I've been working on other things.

Ariann is almost finished! You may remember that I screwed up and wasn't actually making the raglan decreases because I was still increasing in pattern. I had to rip out several inches. This photo is out of date-I really only have about an inch of collar left to go.

I actually finished a pair of socks for Soctoberfest! Let's see if I can get a picture of them up by the end of the month!

Yeah, it's been a looong time. I have been knitting, just too lazy/busy/have better things to do (sleep) than update the blog.

  • Pregnancy, Week 29: All is well. Minor hiccup: I failed my first glucose test so I had to go in for the 3 hour "we're going to draw blood 4 times and you have to pee in a cup 4 times, and don't eat anything past 10 PM the night before" test. Thankfully I passed. Otherwise the pregnancy is pretty uneventful except for being tired.
  • Had a birthday last month.
  • Went on a camping trip. The first night was about 38 degrees. Found out that sleeping with a hat on is a pretty good idea.
  • Attended a fondue class with friends.
  • Finished a sock for Socktoberfest. Hope to get the second one done this month, too.
  • Found out that my company is going to be laying off a significant number of people. Yay. Was pretty bummed for a couple of weeks, but realized there is nothing I can do except hope that things turn out for me. Not a good time for me to look for a job.
  • Had a class reunion. It was really a good time. Most of my classmates turned out really well. I graduated with around 80 people, and many of us have known each other since kindergarten. Makes me feel warm and fuzzy just thinking about all those people.
  • Framed my very own cross stitch piece. Yay, me!

OK, enough babble. I'll check in again when I can get off my lazy butt and upload some photos.
