I was late with my SIL's birthday (as usual) but in my defense, I couldn't decide what to get her. She's into golfing so I made this for her. It's a travel bag for her golf shoes. They get pretty yucky and this will keep everything else in her suitcase clean. I like it.

As I was leaving the house this morning, I realized I wanted to stay home and work on the baby's blanket. I think that's a good sign. I'm digging into that again tonight. Yay knitting!

A few rows....

That's all I've managed lately. I put a few rows on a pair of socks at an open house. I felt good about sock knitting. I think I could definitely get back into that. But then I'd feel guilty because the baby bubby is still just sitting there. I figure I have one or two good weeks to get that finished and I can't talk myself into picking it up.

Anyhow, Mr. C will soon be two. The party was held early in the event his mom winds up in the hospital. She feared he wouldn't get his party. He got it and he liked it. Especially the cake.
The terrible 2's. Let the fun begin.

Mystery of the Disappearing Obsession....

I don't know what has gotten into me. I don't want to knit. After years and years of near obsession, I'm just not feeling it.

So, while I will talk myself into finishing the baby's blanket, I think I'm going to take a knitting break for now and try to get it back eventually.

For a while, I thought sewing was taking over, but I really don't want to do that either. Could be time to get caught up on my reading, or do a little home improvement. There are walls that need painted for sure.
Below is a completed sewing project .... diaper bag and changing pad for Clare. I'm rather proud of this project. I never made anything like this before. It didn't require a lot of skill, but it was new for me. It's cute, don't you think?

Weekend Update

No knitting was accomplished...

King's Family Winery
Catie and Joe at Monticello
Anyone wanting to take a nice weekend trip from PA... I highly recommend the Charlottesville, VA area. It's beautiful. Beautiful scenery, beautiful university (UVA), and beautiful wineries!

Happy Weekend!

Is it just me, or would it be nice if this actually FIT her?

Off to Charlottesville to see Cate.... have a great weekend.

So Much For Secrets

Posting has been light due to the fact that everything I'm doing right now is a secret... or WAS a secret. This is Clare's blanket. (or "bubby" as Mr. C. refers to them) It was exactly where it was supposed to be hiding in my knitting bag. As it would happen, very pregnant daughter strolls into the house, walks over to the chair, and proceeds to snoop in the knitting bag. Before SHE started knitting, she would have never even dreamed of looking in that bag. So the cat (or the baby gift) is out of the bag.
This entrelac pattern can be found at I was going to link to it for you, but their website appears to be down at the current time. The yarn is Art Yarns Supermerino (color sm127) which is machine washable. It's turning out great.
And there is still one more surprise that she hasn't found yet.
