Lots of work, lots of knitting....

It was a good weekend... kids were home... lots of knitting got accomplished and I worked quite a bit. So it was busy and enjoyable. I'm definitely on the home stretch with Kepler. I have the back almost finished so from here on, it's blocking and finishing. I'll definitely have it finished in time for the shower... now if it just actually FITS me, everything will be cool.

I got a sock almost finished as well. Gotta knit socks.

As I sit here typing, my little grand nephew is being born by C-section in London. My niece's water broke Friday and they don't admit you to the hospital automatically when that happens there unless you go into labor right away which she didn't. So, she went into the hospital at 3:00am yesterday (our time) and has been in labor ever since.... I can't imagine. So they finally decided to call a doctor (midwives do everything in England) and deliver by c-section. Poor girl. If they don't do something about soaring health costs here, this is what we have to look forward to in the future as well. (man... I can't stay off the soap box these days!) I'm a wreck sitting here waiting to find out if everything is okay.

My daughter and son-in-law found a house that they like here over the weekend and they had over 30 couples at their Open House in Delaware. So things are moving right along with that situation.

So it's New York on Friday. I've decided to conquer the subway system on this trip. My husband is less than enthusiastic about that idea. Where is his sense of adventure???

Edited 12:10pm - mother and baby fine! Phew!

Wow, I feel for your niece! I was in labor for 39 hours before they finally made me give up and accept a C-Section (which, by the way, is not so bad--just tell her to get up and start walking as soon as she can, it will help her recover more quickly). I'll send good thoughts her way!

Your sweater is looking really nice!
