Progress!

I am so happy and excited about my French Market Bag. I have finished the base and have finally started my 1st color - now to decide how/when to switch to the contrasting color. I have a ways to go before I have to decide, but I am really digging working in the round!

Miss Gracie is feeling much better today, but she's in that "coming out of the cold" hot/cold stage. She'll be giggling and having a good time with me and then the next second she's yelling and throwing her body around, and signaling she wants to nurse. So far each day is still getting better, so this should be over soon :)

I had started a blankie for Gracie with Homespun I had purchased when I was first pregnant and debating crocheting or learning to knit. I was too sick/unmotivated to crochet/scared to knit so it sat and sat until I caught the knitting bug, and I used 1/2 of the stash for a ponchette. But now I'm looking at this other yarn that I was going to attempt IK's Isis Wrap with, and I think I'll do the blankie with this stuff and get some yummy/more appropriate yarn for Isis after/for my birthday - that homespun can just sit for a little while longer ;)

I happened to be on-line long enough last night for an old friend to find me, it is often neat to catch up with someone from another "era" of your life...at least for me, generally. I had lost his contact info, so I was taken by surprise when he IM'd me. So, thanks, Daniel for saying hello! I look forward to keeping in touch with you! If I find Marie before you do, I'll let you know ;)

Sleep is pulling at me...I guess I'm turning in early tonight....Happy Knitting! ~ and I'll get those update photos up soon, I promise!

I did the same thing... bought some baby homespun for a blanket for Itty and now that I "know better" want to make her blanket out of something a little less... acrylic *haha* Like maybe a cotton blend, that way it can still be machine washed and dried. What is it you have that you're going to be using instead of the homespun?

I'm glad she's feeling better. Itty gets hella grumpalicious when she's recovering from a cold too (and the poor thing sweats horribly when she sleeps when her fever is breaking). Sick babies make me sad.

You make the french market bag sound so fun! I know I want to make a bag, I just haven't decided which one... perhaps it'll be that one :)

I've had some people contact me through Classmates.com... it is always so nostalgic!

Hope you got a good night's sleep :)

Daniel Here:

I only regret I didn't say hello sooner. I am glad that it made you smile and that I took the chance. Through the fact that I have never destroyed my brain cells like so many of our peers, I tend to think about the past very, very often. Hence, your smiling face and the sound of your voice often comes back to me. One of my absolute favourite memories of you is when you had somehow got the greatest, and most apparent, sugar rush I had ever seen.
I am glad you child is doing better. She is very beautiful much like her mother. Thank you for never forgetting me.
