Ask Poops, Please

Putting my two cents in.

Born and bred in a small New England town, I am convinced that I know something about everything, and that my opinion matters. If only to me. Well, you'll see what I mean. And I love to knit, so you'll see what kind of things I'm doing when I should be vacuuming the living room.

I do not know what kind of germ my children have picked up, but OH MY GOD. I suspect a long winter is behind this. I need to be able to throw open all the doors and windows and give the dump a good airing, but it's still too cold. First day we get up over 60 though, you betcha.

Bug has been sick since last Monday. That's 12 days and counting.

Bobo's been sick since last Wednesday. About 10 days for her.

Dave, he's new to the party, he didn't get sick until early this week, but when he did get sick, Goodnight, Irene.

Bug and Dave have ear infections and are on antibiotics. None of them can stop coughing. DH is sick but has gone to work today probably just to get out of the house, and I have a cough, though no cold. Luckily for me I have a whole bottle of Tylenol 3 that's just slightly past its expiration date. Should be fine washed down with a shot of vodka in a little cocktail I like to call the V3.

Take two and call me in the morning.

I haven't slept a full night since Saturday and I'm less than perky, let me tell you.

I have managed to get some knitting done, though not much.

Here's the hat and mitten sets I've made for my nephews who will be up from TX this weekend. They'll be here the whole month, and while it's going to be quite warm this weekend, it'll be cold again before the month is out, I'm betting. Colder than Dallas, that's for sure.

The oldest is the same age as Bobo, just turned five and the baby is brand new, two months old. Not much on the specifics, really. The fish pattern is from a book called "Nursery Rhyme Knits", with some adaptations to fit the hat and mittens. It was more of a jumping off place, really. The hat and mitten patterns are my own variations on a theme. The yarn is bits and bobs of what I have kicking around. They're in brown, navy, light blue and orange, and I think I've used some Plymouth Galway, Patons Classic Merino, and Knitpicks Telemark in there. Maybe some Wool of the Andes too.

That's all for today, I 'spose. I'll leave you with photos...

Here's the big boy hat and the little boy hat. (Yeah, that's a Girl Scout Cookie case serving as a backdrop. Samoas. Mmmm....)

Big boy mittens and little boy mittens.I'm still working on the baby sets, but if you're good and play your cards right I might just give you some sneak peeks over the weekend.

I don't know why that came up as a link, and I can't figure out how to fix it. *shrug* I hope it doesn't link to porn or anything. *Nope, just to the picture of the mittens. Sorry if you were hoping for titties...
