Yipee, Pictures!

Okay, I thought I was pretty funny yesterday, but no comments tells me I'm not quite as funny as I think I am. Here are the actual buttons. Thank you, blogger, for cooperating for once and sparing everyone from my humor. I hope my photography is better.
In Drab progress news, I didn't quite make my goal for last night. I have one WS/purl row to complete before I separate the sleeves from the body. I'm also 2 rows into ball four of six designated for the body, so I'm starting to anxious about length. I'm a bit of a pear and I need this sweater to fall past my waist.

Hot damn! Blogger let me post a second picture! This is the yarn for the baby blanket I was talking about yesterday. The colors are a little off. The dark green is a little more yellow in real life and the cream isn't quite so oyster. I'm still thinking Moderne Baby Blanket. But, I'll let you know.
In Billy news, my son thinks he's a dog. The panting, barking and crawling on all fours is cute. Particularly when I picked him up at daycare and he didn't say a word to me for a few minutes. But, when I picked up his lunch box he did break character asking "what's in there?" (He really, really likes to have a snack when I pick him up, usually left over dry cereal or, if he's been good or there's been a party, a piece of candy will have made it into the box.) Fortunately, he hasn't figured out how to mark his territory, but I'm not sure I want all these puppy kisses from my kid. Generally when he asks "I wick it?" He's referring to food (usually ice cream). Last night, he meant mommy's clothes. Ewww.

Those are some really awesome buttons! I can't wait to see what baby blanket pattern you decide on :)

OMG. At least Billy didn't lick your face. LOL.

DD's going through a naked stage - she'll just take off her clothes, usually the bottom half, whenever she feels like it. It's particularly fun when she does this and wants to sit on your lap. I don't know if I'll see shorts this summer at all.
