So, What Was I Doing?

Doug's been gone this weekend. I finished the hat for him to take for little O.K. H has been sick with the croup and with L getting teeth it leads to me getting little sleep or time to knit. I always stay up too late when hubby is gone. I get to pick the channel, knit without hearing snores from the other couch and just have time alone! Short supply of that around here. I'm not in any rush to wean L, but it would be nice if she was done by August so I could go to Stitches Midwest! (Right now I'm lucky to get a couple of hours away... anyone have any tips for getting a 10 month old to use a sippy cup? Our tries at a bottle were not met with a good reaction! We have a VERY opinionated daughter!) I've always wanted to go, but life gets in the way. I'm trying to convince Doug that we could make a vacation of it... visiting friends and family. I might have to find someone to bring my stash enhancements home for me though!

Last night I went through all my yarn, books, etc. and organized everything. That was something I've wanted to do for a while. I feel confident I can find any yarn needed. (And, if I can start a spreadsheet with all the colors, amounts, etc. that I wrote down, I'll be set. I really am a knitting geek!)

We got 2-3 inches of snow Friday evening/Saturday morning. I promised H we could go out for pancakes this morning. L had me up around 6, so by 8:30 a.m. we were out in the snow.

Everyone went to bed early, but I'm still up. Just working on the Wine and Roses mitts. Maybe I'll have a picture on Monday (there's not much to show yet.)

Why not take her with you to Stitches? If she's still nursing, it makes it really easy to feed her. No need to worry about where to heat up a bottle, no being picky about what food she'll eat...I'm probably going to be bringing my little one along with me. He's almost 18 months old now, and still nursing, although he feeds himself most of the time.

Oh, on the sippy cup thing: mine liked drinking out of a big person's glass better. I think it was because his arms weren't coordinated enough to hold his own sippy cup. Also, try different styles of the sippy cups, some work better than others.
