Generally when the whole family is stuck together in the house too long we all get crabby. This week we've been doing really well though. I've finally been getting some much needed sleep. Poor Justin, he's been snivelled for the next two weeks though. I always feel bad when stuff like that happens, I know how much he loves to fly. Not a whole ton of knitting has been getting done, mostly because when Justin is here we do other things, clean, and right now we're painting the boys' room. It's simple, but hard to get done when I can only do a bit at a time. Justin has been doing most of it himself, and he's just really not all that great at it.
On the plus side, I finished the back half of mom's Baccarat top! It looks gorgeous! I'm putting it up though instead of carrying it around in my bag, I'm afraid it'll get snagged or something while it's in there. The yarn is so slippery and delicate...*sigh* What I think I'll do is start those booties for Nolan soon. I'll get Justin to print out the pattern at work.
Oh! I did get some new yarn in! shhhhh! We're having money issues right now, and when I'm stressed, um I buy myself yarn. lol I bought some of the dye-your-own KnitPicks yarn, and some black Palette yarn. The black will go together with the orange from before to make Kyo socks! The colorways I'm plotting for the dye-your-own yarn should be lovely too. :) Lately, I've been really wanting to dye again. Gotta wait til payday to buy some more vinegar though. That's enough blah blah blah for now.
