Knitting, Snow and the big 0-2.(pic heavy)

SNOW

It has been a CRAZY week here in NC. We got a foot of snow!! Those who may not be aware, it NEVER snows in North Carolina. NEVER!!!! If we get anything it doesn’t stick and what does is gone within hours. So, this was a shock to us all. The kids had fun playing and the adults had fun sipping wine and staying indoors. Another thing you may not know about southerners, we don’t like the cold past age 12 🙂
Thankfully it’s started melting and will be back in the 70’s by mid week.

KNITTING
Due to being stuck inside all week, I was able to get some knitting finished.
I completed the wool diaper cover that was for an order and blocked it. It turned out really well.

This is what happens when you have to improvise blocking, haha. That is a can of hair spray and a bead holder. Just call me Macguyver 🙂
I had started a Baby Sophisticate and didn’t like it so I bought the revised pattern and am redoing it. Much happier with the results.

Ready to split it up for the sleeves and start the body.

BIG 0-2
Thing 2 turns 2 on Sunday!! How this happened, I have no idea. I can’t believe the tiny baby(well not that tiny, she was 8 pounds) that I have birth to is now a 2 year old toddler. This child is full of life and keeps me on my toes! She knows what she wants and goes after it, rules be damned. She is a lover and a fighter and everything in between. I see great things in this kids future. My rainbow baby is not quite a baby anymore 😦

Happy 2nd Birthday Rhiannon Hope

What day is it?

My days seem to be running into one another. This month has been a huge cluster f$$k of craptasticness.

First off Vicious got glasses, which are adorable on her. The only issue was for the first week she wore them she got horrible migraines and couldn’t do anything, including go to school! So she missed several day due to headaches. No biggie.

Adorable right!?!
Anyhoo, her eyes adjust to the glasses and she is ready to go back to school then BAM!! We all get the flu!!!
Let me tell you, the flu is horrible!! Don’t get it!!!
Again out of school. This time for both vicious and Thing 2.

After I get everyone well again it decides to freaking snow!!! I live in the south and all the stereotypes about them shutting down everything for bad weather is true!! No school again. Heck we had a delay today jut because it was COLD!!
This is our snow day.

So, this was my long winded way of saying not much knitting has happened this month.
I did make some baby leg warmers and a couple hats but that’s about it. I started a scrap yarn 10 stitch blanket today to help get rid of my odds and ends. I will have to link the pattern next time since I am on my phone right now.

Hope everyone else has had better luck at knitting this month and let’s all keep our fingers crossed that the dang groundhog doesn’t see his shadow this weekend 🙂
