yarn along ~ 1/23/13
Well we have been having a very interesting few days. Tiger has croup. Angel giggle box by day, wheezing and scaring mommy out of her wits at night. Last night after a trip to the ER the night before and a visit with the beast pediatrician in the world (I am so lucky) he did really well well last night. It is likely due to the meds they gave him at the ER. I am just hoping he will be better in time for his first birthday this Saturday!
I have been making him a few things for his birthday and the last one was a Milo vest but I am afraid I don't have enough yarn. Considering I bought it from knit picks I would have to order it, so it will not be done in time. I really ought to make up one of my saint dolls for him. I might be able to do it before Saturday... well, if he is better. Hmmm...
Anyway, I did something different with the Milo, I am doing two cable bands under the arms. It looks really cute in my head, lol. We will see. The cables are inspired by this hat, which since I have to buy more yarn I will probably make for him too.
I am also reading Cravings: A Catholic Wrestles with Food, Self-Image, and God. So far it is wonderful. I have really hit a plateau hard on my weight loss and it is driving me mad. I think it is more a combination of stress and lack of sleep making me not loose weight. I am hoping this book will help inspire me. It really isn't a "diet" book (so far) as it is a way to try to look at how we eat and why we make the choices we make. Very excellent.
