Actual Knitting!

Don't faint! I know it's been a while - but I actually have knitting to show you!

I dyed this yarn with Sarah two summers ago and I knit the socks in February, but I'm just getting around to showing you now:

These are just plain jane socks - basic top down and comfy.

Basic top down sock
Yarn: Hand dyed Louet base yarn

I am still not sure if I will get to keep these - my mom had her eyes on them the last time she was over!

I'm an Auntie!

My sister in law (John's sister) had a baby boy today!

He arrived this morning at 2:02am. He is 6 lbs. 14oz, and 16 inches long. Here he is on the scale.

He doesn't have a name yet - but he sure is cute!
Both he and Mom are doing great!

Stay tuned for more pictures and a name!

***Updated! His name is Simon :)

Tap tap... this thing on?

It's been a month since I've last posted! I can't believe how quickly time has gotten away from me. All I can say is - I've been working long hours. It's no excuse - but it's all I've got.

John has also started chemo again - he's done 2 rounds and has 8 more to go. He's been extremely tired and it's very frustrating to watch him go through this again. Those of you who read his blog know the details - but in a nutshell - there is still some cancer in his liver. Luckily his colon and entire digestive track is still clear. We just have to get the little suckers still in his liver.

So anyway - I'm doing ok other than my frustrations that I can't do anything to help John feel better. I have been keeping busy - working maybe a little too much though!!

I've been doing some knitting here and there also. Right now I am working on the Shetland triangle. I'm knitting it with the orange handspun I just finished. I'm loving it! I have one more repeat to go before the border. Pictures soon!

I also have new drawings to share! These are my latest sketches for the sketchbook swap.
