Finished Knitting and Children

Without listing all the excuses for why I haven’t updated in a while, I’ll just give you some pictures.

Donut and Miss R

The kids hanging out together.

socks1

Finished February’s socks (on March 5th, a little late, but totally done!). These are Bellatrix pattern-slightly modified to skip the yo’s on the instep since they were a bit bulky.  The yarn is Happy Feet.  Loved it.

Donut

Donut likes the socks.

nom nom

He also likes chewing on his wooden spoon.  It’s quite tasty I hear.  He has also started eating rice cereal. I have a movie of that, but haven’t been able to pull it off the camera and edit it yet.  Will try to post it soon.  He LOVES his rice cereal.  This kid is going to be a champion eater for sure.  I’ll have to start saving now for when he’s a teenager and eating everything in the house.

sweater1

A finished sweater vest. Mondo Cable vest by Chic Knits.  I used the Shepherd’s Wool from Stonehedge Fiber Mill-local to Michigan! The color is Spring Green, so appropriate!  I have an extra skein left over that will become matching mitts, hat, or cowl.  I haven’t quite decided yet.

sleepy Donut

All that knitting and posing for the camera has made us sleepy!

Aside from all the knitting I’m getting accomplished, I’m also working on my thesis.  It’s not going great, but I’m slowly plugging away at it. I’m still gathering resources because my adviser wants the books/articles first before I start working too hard on the rest.  Which means, I’m making a list, but not actually researching anything as of yet.  This thesis stuff is so not mu cup of tea.  But if it means I will have a Master’s Degree, then so be it.  I wonder if I get a raise?
