...And a Boy.

I got an announcement for Baby #3 over the weekend. The little guy arrived after 22 hours of labor (YEOUCH!), and after a week, the poor mom is up to just two hours of sleep at a time.

The tired new mom is a crocheter -- and the pictures she sent of the little guy had him wrapped in a really cute blue blanket. I actually remember her mentioning the blanket before. When she emailed everyone to announce that they were having a boy, she said that she was relieved -- because she'd already been working on a blue blanket.

In sweater news, I've come a long way...

This was my Thursday picture:


And this is my Monday picture:


As for my yarn supply, I think I'm pretty safe. I've already started the Love Handle Increases (my term -- not the pattern's), so I only have a few inches to go on the body. I think I've got three inches left. I may be close to the end of the current skein, but I have two more to go. I finished almost the entire body in three skeins -- I think I should be able to pull off some decent sleeves with just under two.

And, in other news, I broke my personal Adamas record yesterday. While cooking up my ginormous Easter meal, I cranked out a few rows. After dinner, while Paul was working off some ham (and making room for pie) by mowing the lawn, I sat on the deck and did a few more. Later, while watching Desperate Housewives, I finished a few more. Yesterday's grand total: 10 rows. Woohoo! I didn't even have to rip out any rows.

Apparently, I should eat loads of chocolate all the time. It improves my ability to knit lace...even while watching TV!

Sweater looks great so far! If that's what you want to call it at least. Where do you find all these great patterns?

Woah. I need to go and work on mine and catch up - I am only on the last waist decrease. Of course, now I want to try it on and see if mine looks as good as yours!

Thanks LS! I went through a few phases with it. First, I *loved* it. Then, as I was working on it, I thought, Whoa...this is really bright! But now I love it again. It's so cheery.
