I've done it again -- finished just about everything on my needles. All that's left is the narrow top piece of the cabled baby hat, and that won't take long at all. What I should have done a long time ago (because then I wouldn't have to do it now!)is cast on for one of the two sock yarn baby hats I have planned. Or the cardigan. Anything that'll take forever and be simple enough to haul around with me.

My Knot a Knitted Paper (acrylic in my case ) Bag is done, and came out a lot deeper than I expected it to be. It should make a great diaper and knitting bag.
And, even though I avoided it at every opportunity, I finished the Hallowig in plenty of time for Alex to wear to the birthday party.

None of the new projects I tried to start this week was any fun. The patterns and yarn are put away and there's no evidence that they ever existed. I need to start something new, but the only things I desperately want to knit are the ones I can't do until the kids are quiet, or would have to buy new yarn for. And, even though I'm only on partial bedrest now, the LYSs are all closed. :-(

I love stitch markers! After placing them between every repeat on the Petal Baby Hat, I finished it without any more trouble at all. And gave myself confidence to start over on the Cathedral Window Shawl. But not until after I finish Alex's Hallowig, which she needs in time to wear for a "rock star birthday party" this Saturday. I'm still not entirely sure what a rock star birthday party *is*, other than an excuse to knit something with hot pink acrylic.

My only problem with the stitch markers is that I lose them so easily. One will pop off off the needle and either go flying toward the toybox or fall into my lap and under a couch cushion. As pregnant as I am, standing up to find them is more effort than it's worth. I finally got my hands on a package of those tiny rubber bands -- hope they work!
