Yarn Along January 23

There's my progress of the Shakespeare Cardigan.

The honeycomb pattern has begun. I finally reached the 9 inches of k1p1 and wasted no time moving on to the honeycomb pattern. I'm 3/4ths of the way through the first repeat. There's three more repeats and if my knitting speed is any indication it's going to take me a week to finish this section. I'm starting to wonder whether I'll have enough yarn for the whole cardigan, but I'm not going to care. If I have to do it with an off dyelot, if this sweater takes 5 years to finish I will complete this cardigan.


It's also yarn along day so I'm happy to share with you that I'm reading It's a Boy, a book about childhood development from birth to age 18. If you're anything like me, sometimes parenting is a totally head-scratching experience. This book helps me understand my sons and where they're headed and how I can nurture them better. I will admit that I am a lazy mom, but my favorite things to do with the kids are read stories, cook food, go to the park, play with friends and go to the grocery store. I am rather impatient about how long it takes for my older son to dress himself. When we're in a rush I typically do it myself. Reading this book encourages me to foster the boys independence more.

What are you knitting and reading right now?

We need to play sooooooooon. Preferably when we're not sick, though. We may skip knitting on Friday because we've both been sick but, you know, since we're feeling better...I don't know.

I'm working on a vest for Little Man and I'm almost positive it's going to be way too big (like to the point that it might fit him when he's 7. I don't know. I should measure it. It'll be cute, though :)

Blogging about knitting since 2004.


What's going on now?

To sum up: husband has a job after two layoffs in 2013. Husband has been laid off for the fourth time in two years due to companies cancelling projects. I have two kids under the age of 5, we just moved in with my mother in law and I think I'm starting to get my mojo back. I've had writer's block for weeks.
