First, a photo of Levi taken a week or so ago. He is turning over by himself but doesn't quite have the neck strength yet to keep his head up for a long time when he's on his tummy.
I am so glad he lives close-by, I am enjoying my great-aunt-hood :-}
In knitting, I have nailed down the final details of the Withig summer cowl, and will be knitting it for the next few days. The charts are all finished, and the yarn is yummy. It will be a quick knit, too.
For fun, I am knitting a kit called the Spring/Summer shawl (the photo above Levi, from the Knit Picks site). I think I may switch out the peach for the pink, then either use the peach as the final color, or choose a different color for the edging.
I am almost finished with the turquoise/spring green blended bit. It has been a great TV knit, and very relaxing.
I have all the yarn I need for a toddler/little boy sized sweater, and I think I have most of the details determined. I will make a sweater swatch ala Jacqueline Fee's Sweater Workshop book to finalize the pattern. This involves adding all the details to a tubular knit, so that you have gauge and your decisions all made re: collar, edging, buttonholes, any colorwork or textured stitches. It also looks pretty interesting when you are finished!
And sleep. Tuesday I didn;t sleep until about 10 a.m. and slept 4 hours total. Wednesday, slept from 3:30 a.m. until 8:30 a.m.. Thursday, no sleep at all until noon on Friday.
Had a pretty good night last night. Slept from 11:30 until 3:30, got up with my face itching and my joints hurting. I took more benadryl and another dose of pain meds (it was time for another dose), and slept deeply until 11 a.m.! That's why I was able to make such good progress on the Withig Cowl pattern today :-}
Hoping tonight goes as well!
