One down...a million more to go...

So it was a decently productive morning around Chez 'wannabe'. 2 loads of laundry, the entire kitchen was cleaned including the floor, beds made, cats fed, vacuumed, straightened the entire joint up and went thru all of Syd's grown out clothes and sorted into bags to take to Once Upon A Child. I'm feeling pretty darn good about all of that.

I was surprised how hard it was to part with Syd's stuff. I mean they are JUST clothes but as I pulled each thing out I thought about a time when she wore it and how cute she looked. I saved a Rubbermaid full of stuff that I just couldn't part with...all of the outfits she had her pics taken in, her velvet trench from Auntie Sara, her first tennies etc etc. The kid has more clothes than I ever owned in my entire life. I'm not sure why the heck I have gotten so sobby about things like this, I'm SO not pregnant so don't even go there. :)

In Knitting Knews...Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino sucks a duck. I was making the Umbilical Cord Hat from Stitch N Bitch for my SIL and the whole thing split during the decreases. It really got my panties in a wad because I was on the next to last decrease. DRAT! So, I went with one of my most special friends to the local LYS and picked up a skein of Kashmir hoping that the braid-type strand won't split on me.

Current WIPs....a laceweight summer scarf in Rowan Kidsilk Haze in 585Nightly for the MIL for Mother's Day, a pair of SOCKS...yes, socks in Skip One, Purl Too Handdyed wool in a turquoise colorway, and a cotton candy pink Sophie bag which I'm hoping to find the perfect vintage pin to add to it after it's felted. Pics to follow.

Off to clean the Buggernut up from lunch and then naptime...ahhhhhh.....

I feel that way about any of my kids things. They just hold so many memories, ya know? I think I told you this before but that coat was such a deal, it was marked down to $10 at Baby Gap and it was the last one they had! Is Tammi pregnant?

I love that coat. I put her in it for her first Christmas pics...underneath it was a red velvet Ralph Lauren dress that I got for near nothing at OUAC. So sweet.

Nah, I'm making it for her best friend who is preggo with her 4th. She couldn't figure out the pattern so I told her I'd make it for her and teach her how the next time I saw her. I'll have to post about my hell with the new yarn tomorrow. Wretched!
