Well I should start with knitting shouldn’t I? I completed a pair of Fetching mitts for the little sis. She took them before I could get a pic, but we all know what they look like. Right? I knit them using some pretty green Debbie Bliss merino aran that I purchased back when the knitting bug first hit me again. It was being combined with some yellow cascade 220 to make Candy from Knitty but some recent news had me questioning if I would ever wear a sweater in that style.
Speaking of that other news. You know how every one in the blog world is pregnant, well I’m finally in on a trend. I was surprised to find out and nervous because my son had yet to turn one when we got the news. My (large) family was so excited that it was contagious and I lost a lot of the nervousness. Some of the other moms in blogland were expecting baby #3 also so I figured I wasn’t alone.

My mom is a twin and the family has been wishing for this since baby number 1. This up’s the need to move a couple of notches don’t you think?
So instead of knitting and crafting I have been trying to make it to class without throwing up along the way, wrapping my mind around the fact that we are about to become a family of 6, cleaning for open houses, and looking at a lot of real estate. Throw in taking care of thing 1 and thing 2, hubby, and sporadic cooking and cleaning and you can see how knitting has taken a back seat. I have promised my daughter a hat and scarf for school so I am determined to start them today so on with the knitting.
Oh I almost forgot. I’m sure that I mentioned that I am a screenwriting major on here before, well I entered my first
