More Knitting

I finished the ear flap hat earlier this week to go with the yoda sweater I made for my stepbrother's baby boy who is due in March. It was a very quick and easy knit. I do have to say that I hate knitting i-cord, especially out of cotton. It is very hard to maintain the tension and keep from separating the yarn. But the end result was good, I think, and the 2 pieces match well. Here are the pics...


So is all this knitting helping to pass the time away? I don't know. I've gotten to the point where I count the amount of time until the ultrasound in terms of events. For example, I get together with my friend Jenny to watch American Idol every Tuesday. (Well really we're mostly gabbing, but whatever). So I've got just one AI night left before the ultrasound. The same thing with my knitting circle on Wednesday nights...just one circle left until the u/s. I also count by weekends, but sadly there are still two of those left. Hmmm. I am starting to wonder about my mental stability though, given that I can waste an entire paragraph discussing the measurement of time until my next ultrasound.

Yep, I do the same thing. I have coffee (well, now decaf herbal tea) with friends every Tuesday morning, and each Tuesday I count down how many more coffeehouse meetings until the next appointment or milestone. "Lucky" for me, though, I'm going to be swamped at work for the next 2 weeks, which should make the time go faster (less free time to spend obsessing...).

So the obsessing doesnt stop?

Hang in there sweetie.

I can't see the photos!! I'm so curious! I wish I could do a knitting circle. :( The closest one is pretty darn far.

Hang in there.

I couldn't see the pictures at first either. They are working now and they look so cute.

Love the knits! What a fabulous color, I am a green freak.
I am hoping the time flies by for you, I HATE waiting and sympathize with you so much.

Very very cute stuff. I have zero knowledge of sewing and/or knitting, so I am very impressed! I'm sure that time is going to start speeding up pretty soon!

Yay! Photos! Very cute. :)
