I love February Vacation.

Productivity with important things like house cleaning, organizing, wedding planning, etc., all those things that don't seem fun or enjoyable have not been attended to this week. But a wonderful time finishing things and getting ready to start new things has occurred. The skirt is finished, with a maternity panel and everything! It's very comfortable and when a little person is no longer being carried around on the inside, simply ripping out the panel and adding the matching material to make it a regular skirt is within the capability range of this particular person.

Note the belly, it's in between "is she pregnant, or is it winter in NH and she's just eating a lot of chocolate?" The doctor says it's a baby, but please don't keep track of my caloric intake for snacks. Thanks.

The largest snow storm of my winter took place over vacation too, and the beautiful thing about it was that the almost 2 feet of snow did not have to be shoveled off my porch, but rather my parents. That is simply NOT my responsibilty, so let it snow some more!

It's February!

And the sweater is finished. You never would have thought it possible if you had watched me pull the thing apart time and time again. But I have finished this sweater within the month it was named, and in enough time to wear it. Life is full of little surprises. One of them being that for a much as I pull apart my knitting, I actually get to the end of projects. Now the socks I need to pull apart next..........different story. We'll see you when/if those are ever finished :(

In other none knitting news, professional cycling is back on tv, it's the Tour of California. What I didn't realize is that all the dopers are back, Floyd, Tyler, Lance.............. yes many won't like that but you have to wonder about it. Given what we've learned over the past years, I find it hard to believe that there are any professional athletes, never mind cyclists who have not at sometime in their careers used something. I'm sure this bothers some, with Mr. Armstrong being such an icon, but my opinion is tarnished.

It's real.

We don't care about the gender, the good news is there are two legs, 2 arms, a spine, 2 kidneys, 4 parts to the heart, and the brain is just the right size! It's really going to happen.

It hurts when your finger gets to close

It actually really hurts when your finger gets to close to the foot of your sewing machine, and the tightening screw hammers down on your index finger. Just something to keep in mind, you don't need to know what prompted this information, I'm sure you can guess.

I have made my little red headed friend her 4th birthday present. I'm rather happy with it. There is an idea brewing and I'll probably make her a little chef's hat too, but right now I don't have any interfacing at home. Her birthday is tomorrow, she likes to help cook and she has a great time cooking in her own play kitchen. It seemed like a good idea. It's sad to admit that I've had this material for a long time now, but I've been rather scared of the project. I'm not sure why, it was just an internet JoAnn's fabric simple print out pattern and I think it's great for a 4 year old!
