my life as a crocheter & knitter & working mom

planning a little trip to a wet area

As usual I had a bunch of interesting things to say last night. I'm sure I had a great post composed in my head a half-dozend times. I sit down and there's nothing.

I finished Nattie's Kroy Kristmas sock this morning. I got through most of the toe shaping last night. Unfortunately, I can't put the darn thing on my foot and her feet are bigger than mine. I checked my gauge on the foot and it's about 12 st/inch. I kid you not. I will be swatching with US3 this afternoon and starting over. This bad boy will be going to the frog pond. I don't really mind frogging things, but with deadline knitting I can't help but think of the time I wasted by not swatching!
Here's a pic of my progress on Hubby's Christmas Cables. It's now about 7" and I've finished five full repeats. Only about 18" to go. Must knit more. I knit during Bones last night, didn't knit during House and nearly fell asleep during L&O: SVU. Too much TV. I will knit during LOST tonight and perhaps if I stay up after 10 (I shouldn't, I'm exhausted).

I also need to find time to clean my house. The clutter and the dust bunnies are getting to me (and that's saying a lot, I have a high clutter/dust tolerance level). I'm sure my slovenly house keeping hasn't been helping with all of our allergies. I should check with hubby to see if his parents are taking Billy and Molly on Saturday. That will give me time to get some of it done.

The cable sweater looks awesome. Sorry about the trip to the frog pond.

And I had to fire my housekeeper a couple of weeks ago for stealing from my daughter. TWICE. So don't even get me going about how the house looks!
