So normally I thrive on deadlines but this one has really pained me. I participated in Loopy Academy again and just finished my 3rd and final project today. The challenge was to knit a pillow, a textured project, and a cabled project. These are my entries:

What pained me about this was the huge amount of guilt I've felt about not spending time on other projects. Mostly those super important thrummed mittens that only need a thumb and a half. If anyone is looking for me I'll be spending my time with them.

Merry Christmas

I feel like we're living in a Gallagher skit...we can't have a full size Christmas tree because we have a baby. We tried to make up for the Charlie Brown tree by stringing twinkle lights. 

She's so totally worth all of the changes we've had to make!

Merry Christmas to all!

It Grew

Not that I didn't know it would happen. I totally expected it. 

I'm putting this away until next year. Hopefully she can start wearing it then. And she should be able to wear it for a good 2 years. Can't wait to see this on her! I really love it!

It's done!!! 

Ok, I still have to sew it up. And work in all the ends. And give it a tubby. But the knitting is done! It looks like an octopus right now. Best get to the finishing...

I've Been Cheating

With the cats downstairs. 

My oh my are they ever precious. And the best part? Mickey doesn't seem to be bothered in the least with this little fling.
