Blame It on the Rain.

Well, actually blame it on the sun shine,breezy weather and...

the need for lots of outside babywearing walks!
 (ignore the snow in the background)

As my two amazing little boys grow at warp speed I find that I really need to spend less time in front of the computer and more time outside playing, getting together with friends and knitting as fast as my hands will go so that what I'm making will actually still fit while still being seasonally appropriate.

Loki turned 3 last weekend which is not sad, really it's amazing and hard to believe he was ever a tiny baby. What gets me is that we are hurdling towards Astas' 1st  birthday. He is my last baby (sigh)  time is moving at a rapid pace and I find it hard to hang on as the days slip right past me.

I also look at all the frilly little girly clothes and feel a pang of longing as I know I will never make or need any of those type things (really big sigh)

4 years later!

I may have exaggerated in my previous post about how long these were on needles. I'm pretty sure I started these sometime in 2006 perhaps? I really cannot remember. Who cares anyway because thanks to Ravelry and the Ravelympics 2010 I begrudgingly finished them. WHOO!!!
Although after wearing them for the day I think I've come to a realization: I'm just not that into hand knit socks. Don't get me wrong they look wonderful, they just don feel wonderful under my feet. I feel the stitches and it's not my knitting. It's that fact that they are knit that bothers me. I think I like the super fine store bought ones better. Ah well, I'll stick to pants and other things guess.
