proof that yarn people will make a cosy for *anything* in *any* theme, out of yarn.

Had to rip back about 20 rows of the right front panel on the current Rosebud Cardi due to a stupid mistake I made while knitting at the dog park. Cast on again for Cam's socks in a new skein of yarn, the other was not making me feel happy. Otherwise, there is very little knitting news to be relayed here. 2 more pregnancies have been announced in my little community of goffic mamas and I gotta say. Guys. SLOW THE HECK DOWN. There are only so many little sweaters I can churn out here. Is it something in the water? Maybe it just seems so odd to me because my kids are so close to being grown. Admittedly, I started young. Maybe this mid 30's baby boom is normal. Whatever the reason, I'm going to be very busy knitting baby bat gear for the next couple of years, I can tell.
I am doing very well with the not buying any new craft crap resolution. So far, I figure I've Not Purchased about $25-$30 bucks worth of stuff. That is to say, stuff that I either picked up and had a reaaaally hard time putting down or bookmarked for May 1. That's actually not a lot of money, but I've been busy and not had much time to spend either online or in yarn stores. It hasn't been much of a challenge yet, but I'm starting to feel itchy. Sadly, that same lack of time means that I haven't had any free time to use up what I've already got. It's just sitting there. Can I survive extending this into May? How are y'all doing with that one?
My pal from SP6, the Jersey Knitter sent me a Tricoteuses Sans Frontieres pin! I have stuck it on my knitting bag and am feeling very happy to see it there. Thanks so much!!! It was a nice surprise!
