Blog Hopping

Wow, I'm a bad blogger! I've been blog hopping today and realized how shamefully I neglected my own poor blog! So lets see news to tell, well we are pregnant with number 2 now! DS#1 is very excited, kissing momma's belly and asking about the baby. So cute! (I know, I'm biased!)

I've been on a total knitting kick looking at cute baby things to knit. I started working on a sock, hat and cardigan set but true to form, the pattern drove me nuts so I half followed the pattern and made up part of it myself. The socks and hat are finished
The "ribbing" part on this was supposed to have a move cable look but some how I couldn't make it work right so for the cardigan I just did K1P1 rib. Here's how far I am
I've also been giving a lot of though to this lace shawl I started LAST SUMMER for my grandmother! The Fern and Feather pattern is supposedly "very easy" but with a little one running around while your trying to count you loose track often and I've missed a row several times now. So after being frustrated about it for this long I think I'm going to rip it out and make it into a lace scarf in fern and feather, hoping that if I have less stitches I'll be able to keep my attention on it for a whole row!
Here's how far I've gotten, sorry bad pic, I can't figure out how to do a close up shot on this new camera
Here's the best I can do to show where I messed up, I don't know if you can tell but the purls are now on the knit side *sigh*
Okay off to go hop a few more blogs, keep me inspired to come back and write more soon!!
