Yarn Along


Only two weeks left to go until I sit for my IBCLC examination. I have no idea where the last month went but I know that I sadly lacked in the studying department. I am making every effort to start cramming as much knowledge of the biologic and immunologic factors of human breastmilk into my brain but I am afraid I am woefully underprepared. I'd so much rather be knitting than studying (and so I have been....). Anyway I must really crack down on the studying the next two weeks... the countdown to July 25th has truly begun.

Even amongst the studying I have been knitting. I finished the bloomers that I was making and now need to find time to make the matching leg warmers (maybe after the 25th). I have also been working on the blanket that I started a while back but there are times when that project leads me straight to knitting hell! I cannot do anything else while working on it b/c then I make a mistake and it takes me hours to fix it! Ugh.. at least now I know that I need to really pay attention to what I am doing. I started on a pair of baby socks just because but I have only knit 2 rows so I have a way to go there... hopefully I will have time to either finish the socks or the blanket before the fair. Deadline for fair submissions is August 1st!

It's going to be a busy few weeks.


Edited to add: the bloomers are from Carina Spencer's convertible baby bloomers. You can find the pattern here and my rav notes here. I made the bloomers to go with the owlie vest and hat from last week's yarn along.

It's amazing what other kinds of projects get done when there is studying to do! Good luck on your tests.
