This post was originally written 17 December 2008. Look for actual new stuff later this week. Thanks. And pictures, there will be pictures.
Last week, while D. was traveling for work, I realized that M. is now sick of "Goodnight Moon". While getting her ready for bed early in the week she got cranky when I grabbed the book off the shelf; so, I just recited it to her while she nursed. Well, on Thursday, during the diaper change/putting on pajamas part of bedtime, I was telling her that we were going to read a book, and she signed book and seemed really excited... but when I grabbed "Goodnight Moon" off the shelf she got cranky. So, I picked another book and she settled down and we read the new book. HOLY CRAP! I really had no idea that kids would get sick of things like that, let alone that she'd let me know. So, now we are reading an assortment of new books.
In knitting news that isn't (because it's sewing) I made the linings for her hats and sewed them in. I had to re-block the Dwarven Football helmet, because when I blocked it to make a pattern for the liner, I lined up the ear flaps, but that made a strange bump in the front.
In actual knitting news, I finished the first Knuck (except for the weaving in of ends). I really am enjoying making these! I wish I had started making these sooner, they are really great! I love the textured cuff. The only reason I haven't made these before was that I was afraid they'd be too fiddly with all the fingers and worried they wouldn't fit. The part that took the longest was the crab stitch to finish it off. Something about a small hook and dark yarn that got splitty (but wasn't splitty while knitting).
