Why you ask? Because I am knitting like crazy on the baby blanket I didn’t finish during the Ravelympics. See in my head I had another week before the baby shower, only it’s a week from Sunday. I don’t want to be working on this at the last moment.
The main problem though is that I am using my new Knit Picks Options Needles to knit it with. Those things are pointy! For some reason when I purl I stick the point into my thumb to push it back through. I’ve tried to not do it, but I forget and start doing it again. So now my thumb is numb.
My gauge was way off too, so what should have been the bottom edge of the blanket is now going to be the side. It’s still going to turn out nice and I am loving the yarn. I’m just frustrated that I actually did knit a gauge swatch this time and still ended up way off. It makes no sense to me. Oh well.
Since I’ve been spending every spare moment knitting (I’m a really really slow purler) I still haven’t taken photos of the other finished projects from the Ravelympics. Of course even if I had I don’t know where I put my photo cord. lol
So here are some pictures I had already uploaded.
These are from our first day of school. Yes I make the kids get dressed and stand by the front door for a “First day of School” photo even though we homeschool. lol Maybe it’s silly but oh well.
I also get them new backpacks each year and fill them with some new school supplies and treats. The big box of crayons is always the big hit for both kids.
School is going well. We haven’t gotten as much done this week as I had planned. But the dizziness (vertigo) has shown back up and it’s hard to teach children when the room is spinning. It’s one of the good things about homeschooling I guess, that I can take a few days off when we need to.
