Yarn Along

A quick Yarn Along this week – still the same project, still the same books.  But making progress and enjoying them both so it’s all good.  Of course I thought I would have gotten more done but don’t I always?  I figure I’m about 2/3 done with my knitting.  And probably my book too.  I’m hoping I’ll at least finish the decreases today and start the last part but I’m not holding my breath.  There is someone in our household who needs an earlier bedtime but that someone has gotten accustomed to sleeping all snuggly with Mama and so is so not a fan of going to bed.  In fact, this wee someone woke up exactly 13 minutes into NCIS last night and was up until I went to bed a little after 10.  For some reason I really stink at the whole baby sleep thing (although at least this one naps and at least we’ve found a way of getting some sleep even if it is not ideal.)  All this kills any intentions of an evening of knitting or anything else for that matter.  But so it goes and that’s the end of my complaining.

And this book – excellent.  (As was March which I finished last week – highly recommend it if you like historical fiction/ Civil War era/ Little Women.)  Anyway, I’m really loving her humor.  And also the ideas she presents.  Aren’t “well brought up” children are everyone’s goal?  And any hints at a calmer existence are always welcome.  Plus in some ways I can relate to raising kids in another country.  (I know Canada isn’t that different from the U.S. but yet it is.) 

So there is my Yarn Along for this week.  Now on to checking out what else is being posted today.  And the ever important making of popcicles with the boys because they were promised popcicles today.  (Banana yogurt flavor by their choice if you’re curious.)  Happy Wednesday 🙂

    Well I know one day you will not have a baby but a toddler and your night time knitting will resume, so enjoy the snuggles while they are there. I'm coming over for a icepop!!!!

    haha! Mine do that with my phone! I knit at night too, you'll get back to it soon I'm sure!

    Oh I know the story of the snuggly sleeper. Mine is three. I figure she'll switch to a teddy or something at some point. Until then I sneak in the knitting where I can. I am sure your knitting rhythm will work out eventually.

    I think it is amazing all you accomplish with little ones to take care of. I was never very good at the sleep thing either, but please know that it is only for a season and then you will have time to do whatever you want.
    I kind of miss those days now that my babies are big!

  6. Haha, love the little note your little one left, cute 🙂

    Funny, there must have been something in the air last night, my little man just couldn't sleep either. I had big plans for a little knitting and a cup of tea, but ended up snuggling him, which was okay too.

    Hoping yours gets some sleep so you can pick up those needles.

    Oh, what I wouldn't give to snuggle with a baby still small enough to sleep on my chest…
    Well, I'm not sure I would trade the full-night's-sleep thing, now that I think of it. Each stage has its plusses and minuses, doesn't it? You'll be back to knitting soon enough, I'd suspect. 🙂 xo

I'd love to hear from you!
