So busy I don't really remember my last shower.
All because of this little guy:
But really. I've been mostly tied to the couch, nursing him, for weeks now. It's a wonder how I've gotten anything done. Actually, I haven't. At least not housework-wise...unless you count washing endless diapers. Seriously. It's like I won the stork's raffle for super-soaker baby...which I suppose goes along with his constant nursing. (On the other hand, it's nice to have an economic justification for breastfeeding and cloth diapering.)
Anyway, I did figure out how to knit while nursing (no small trick since I knit continental style), so while I've been feeding my son, and watching endless episodes of Quantum Leap and Star Trek: The Next Generation, I managed to finish up a few pieces this month.
First there's this lovely Who? hat, whose Owl cables are a bit difficult to see, but I assure you they are there:
Then, there's the Declan hat, which I knit because I had a bunch of gorgeous purple Cascade Eco+ that screamed at me "I want to be a hat!"
I knit Clinton a pair of blue longies, so that he would have a diaper cover that also doubled as pants:
And then I started making another sweater from one of my favorite kids' sweater patterns, DNA:
So that's about it for January. I've only one more week of maternity leave, so I'm certain there will be more to write about soon.
