Now with pictures!

A quick update before bedtime:

Greedo has taken up Yoga:

Somerset has normal thyroid function, and remains incredibly cute:

I am knitting a jumper for my niece out of Kroy and Kureyon sock yarns:
Tnoroyven april 10 a
The pattern is called Tjorven. I have named my own version Tnoroyven.

It is a good thing that I decided against knitting socks for myself out of the Kureyon - the yarn broke once, and several times I have found myself knitting very gently out of concern that the unspun bits will pull apart. Not to mention that there was a knot about 1/8 of the way through the yarn. I would end up having dozens of ends to weave in when I finally finished the socks.

Although my usual practice is to just let Noro stripe as it wishes, I have altered this yarn - there should be a green band in the middle of the fuschia - I had initially planned to include it, but the knot that I came across connected the 2 strips of fuschia together. I thought it would look weird to suddenly have green appear more than halfway down the skirt, so I will be excising the green bits.

I still have a second skein of Kureyon sock that I am going to use for a Baby Surprise Jacket. The parents of the jumper recipient are expecting Baby #2 around the same time as Kid #1's birthday. The colourway (S150) is pretty gender neutral - grey, charcoal, green and turquoise. I have until June to finish them both.

Thought I would write a quick blog post while I took a break from work. However, I hit the wrong "new post" button and it got published on a different blog

I can't cut and paste the text, and didn't have the heart to retype it, so you will have to go to the link to read it - sorry, still no photos.

I guess the sleep deficit is taking its toll on brain function. Luckily I finish tomorrow morning.

Sad excuse for a blog posting

This was amusing for at least 3 minutes.

Even though I haven't been blogging, I have been knitting. Sadly, I can't post any photos because my work computer* can't access flickr. There are some shots on Ravelry.

*Because work is so incredibly busy, I now have an apartment near the hospital that I stay at the nights that I am on call for the ICU, or if I have to be at the hospital at some ungodly hour like 07:00. Since I slept there about 20 nights in March, I haven't seen as much of The Gambler and the cats as I would like. Doing the quality time thing doesn't leave alot of room for writing blog posts. However, I do have a glorious 5 days off (in a row!) next week, so I plan to do some catching up.
