Babies are Cute

It's true. I love babies, though I'm not happy about being pregnant or having to spend the next twenty years (probably more) of my life dedicated to the little critters, they are fantastic when they're little. Mostly, I think it's one of the things I was just born with a natural talent for. With eight weeks left of pregnancy, we are beginning the process of preparing the house for an extra resident.

Today we bought paint for the boys' bedroom, and all of the accessories needed to paint. Justin should clear out the room this week. I think I'll wait until Heather starts preschool (August 1st!) to actually begin painting. But I can always clean the walls and things for now. Gotta find some stencils of baseballs, mitts, etc for the room too. I really want my dad to come stay with us for about a week during August to help out. I want to put some shelves and things up in there too, he would really be handy to have around. We can finally begin to move Kyran's clothes (which have been occupying a plastic tub in both our bedroom and the living room, not to mention some space in my closet) into the closet in that room. It'll be nice to free up some of that space. Especially since my stash seems to be growing and taking over my bedroom! I'll take pictures of the room when it's all done. The room the kids are in now was an adventure in art that I don't really want to take again! Though it looks cute, as you can see.

Okay, so we all know I need to focus and get that top done for my mom. Seeing as how it should have been done this past weekend. But I'm procrastinating again, which I'm just fantastic at! I made a baby sock. It just kinda flies off the needles! Even though the pattern was written for two circs (which makes adapting to one long one super easy) I did it on some DPNs. Just for the heck of it. Though it was annoying to shift the stitches all over, the sock was fun. I was mad at the stitches I picked up for the gusset. They were pretty loose, guess I just have to watch my slipped stitches next time around. When I knit some for Kyran (which I plan on doing) I will have to seriously adjust the pattern, I will have to actually swatch for it. He's got some chubby little flintstone feet. That's Kyo modelling the sock for me...I tried to find Hobbes to torture (hey then he could be on Stuff on my Cat!) but he wasn't here. Ironically he showed up at the back door mere minutes after I took the picture. I was happy with it though and decided to leave him alone.

My mom's top is sitting next to me...I swear I'm working on it. After I finish the current row I'm working on I'm going to start the shaping for the armholes and whatnot. Tonight is Nightmares & Dreamscapes!! Woot! Since Justin has a night flight I'll be knitting to TV most of tonight. Hopefully I get the back done.

Kitty's Story

Vintage 008

First, I must confess my name isn't Kitty, or anything even close. It just comes from an affinity for cats. Second, I love to craft, create, and imagine. I can draw a bit, knit a lot, and sew just enough to get by. My world revolves around the loves of my life; my three children. Anything more you want to know about me is on Ravelry or check me out on FB!
