Shh! Everyone's Sleeping!

Little Jack and the dogs gave me a nice respite this afternoon. DH left to have the van inspected by a Dodge tech. Yes, I said van. More on that later when I have pics.

I have two projects on my (belated) gift list that are felted: Oven Mitt and Argyle Pillow. Since I'm using stash yarn and I'm not up to date on logging it on Ravelry, I pulled them all out of my yarn closet and sorted them by color.

I have a lot more wool than I thought! A nice range of colors too but I think I need some more browns and blues. I might have to go pick up some brown, earthy colored Paton's for the backside of the pillow. I was thinking the multicolored Manos here in the front could work for the mitt but I don't think I have enough unless I double it with a solid. Hmm. I'll think about that. Then for the Pillow, the red Lamb's Pride on the left under the door with the taupe Araucania on top of the Knit Pick's natural. I hear that most whites and natural colors don't felt, how about Knit Pick's? That would work for the pillow or the mitt. HMMMM....

Uh oh, he's stirring. I better put this mess away.

Yay for Sleep!

Really now, what is the deal with Facebook? I'm on. It's the same as MySpace but without the lurkers and creepy guys sending messages. Meh. I'll continue on. I need another site to take up more of my time.

Knitted Christmas gifts have now become just knitted gifts:
  • Tudora for Jess
  • Market bag for Ana
  • Something I can't remember for Mom
  • A pillow for France (picking between 2 designs, will depend on my stash)
  • Hats
  • and... that might be it.
Jack is getting bigger and has finally started sleeping through the night. I can't believe I got by with so little sleep. Last weekend I got caught up on laundry, straightened and organized the upstairs and temporarily dedicated an area to blocking! Jack won't mind if Mom uses his spare bed :) My partially blocked Woven Tote is the first order of business.
