|Baby B's Layette all done!|
Since I finished the layette I have been a little bit at loose ends at what to do next knitting wise. I started a shawl for myself a while back so I have been working on that little bit at a time. I'm supposed to be working on a tester hat for a fellow diva but it a very detailed, cabled pattern and I haven't had a chance without toddler running around to really sit down and knock it out. It's difficult for me to do more complicated patterns when I am supposedly supervising my kids. I figure I will have time to work on it next week when we are visiting my mom for school vacation. So in the meantime I guess I will just work on my shawl. I have several other friends who are expecting so I see many more baby gifts in my future!
Reading wise I am still on the same book, in the same place I was last week so nothing much to report. We have been reading nursery rhymes with the kids in order to reinforce what they have been working on at school. Xander amazes me with his ability to memorize these things after hearing them only once or twice and James has even been "reading" along with us. I love listening to the way they change the stories slightly in their own renditions- so cute! Xander especially likes it when I sing them to him so I have sung countless verses of "Mary had a little lamb" and "Lavender's Blue" over the last week.
I made good progress on painting in James' room (hence the lack of reading) so the room is all done except touch-ups around the edges. The closet in only about 1/2 done so that has to be finished and then we have to empty the living room of furniture this weekend in prep for the floor refinishing that will be going on next week while the kids and I are at my mother's. We have SO much to do- it is going to be a busy week!
Come yarn along with us at Ginny's Place.
