I've been feeling sooooo guilty about not posting recently, I have a great excuse, you know, tired, pregnant, too much running around after little people. The real reason is that every time I think about posting something I analyse it too much rather than just writing it down and putting it out there. And there's another thing too, every time I put pictures into the post I have to cut and paste the text back and forth so the pictures are in some sort of order as I write about them... It's frustrating but something I really should learn about and can't be bothered with.

So... what have I been doing lately apart from falling asleep on the couch instead of knitting? After finishing the coat, yay (havn't done all the weaving in yet) I started on another knitted babe for my son's friend from school, she is being very patient... (or she has forgotten that I am knitting one).

Here are some 'in progress' photo's...

She has now been but together, still have to finish the hair though and once that is done to make the clothes.

A couple of projects got started and finished, with my Dad's birthday looming and not much money, socks seems very appropriate...

and I squished a dishcloth in, this was fun, I got the yarn from The Wool Shack and used Peaches and Cream cotton in Sour Green Apple, here's the pattern.

Yet another project started (not too many finished), this is for next spring/summer, no more huge baby bump! (well, hopefully)

I am using Soho Summer DK Cotton (Jo Sharp), Sailboat. Dead easy but I love to wear simple patterns. Let's see if this actually gets finished by summer...

This probably wouldn't be at the bottom of the post, or shouldn't be but I got my Ravelry invite (don't thing I posted about putting my name on the list). Another black hole in my time management, it's great, it's easy to get lost in Ravelry and forget about what I should be doing in the real world (sleeping probably).
