It started when my son woke up Thursday night around 11pm. He was crying a little louder than usual and seeing his little face, I could tell why. The little guy had a runny nose and it totally confused him. I spent the remainder of the night waking up with him as he dealt with his first stuffy nose. He was a champ, but the next day I was an exhausted mess. That night, I caught the cold and had another sleepless night. That makes for two sleepless nights in a row, which makes me one unhappy camper.
I got up that Saturday morning sleepy and in full-body pain. I was sore from head to toe with a scratchy throat to boot. Since then, I've been having migraine headaches, general crankiness and exhaustion, but my son has been a good example for me and I've tried making the best of it, managing to fit in some knitting between sneezing and kleenex. :D
I finished this hat for Baby KnitLuck. It's Kyle's Cap, which can be found here. I knit it with Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille. Both the pattern and the yarn are old favorites and it's a joy to see my own son finally wearing one of these hats, since I've made so many of them for other people.
I suppose that means that I'm in a hat mood.
Also today, I found my way to the sale at Piedmont Yarn. I was a very good girl and restrained myself to only one purchase:
Hope the rest of you are having a lovely Labor Day. What did you guys do?

What's going on now?
Miracles have happened and husbeast received and accepted a job offer at his dream company last week. He starts work soon. We are breathing sighs of relief and expecting great things ahead.
I'm knitting. I've been caring for my two sons, living at my MIL's house, volunteering at our local co-op preschool and gardening. Trying to find time to write and to redefine this blog to embrace my current reality.
