Finally, finally I want to knit again, NEED to knit again. I am working on a super simple garter stitch blanket for one of my sons for christmas. I am using Knitpicks Cotlin and 9 different colors, each stripe being one skein of yarn big. So far I am on skein 3. I made one of these for Nuala before she was born (but I used wool) and Cae just loved it and has been wanting one for awhile. Since it is such an easy knit it is something I am working on at night when I don't have to think much. BUT, because it is so easy it is sorta boring, and since I feel the urge now to knit again I decided to start on a couple of sweaters. One for Fiona and one for Nuala, matchy matchy sweaters! I bought some yarn off of a friend in a lovely variegated pink and I am making the girls this vest, it is super simple and very sweet and uses BUTTONS! Fiona and I have been looking on Wooly Moss Roots Etsy shop to see which lovely buttons I should use. I am leaning towards the purple heart buttons, but Fiona loves the fabric buttons with the flowers. I might be forced to order both!
My reading as been focused almost completely on my Breastfeeding counselor "Breastfeeding Physiology" book, and when I am not reading that I actually have been reading the Waldorf Kindergarten snack book (weird I know, but it is full of info as well as recipes).
