So, I may have mentioned this- but this week, I bought one of those circular knitter’s looms things. Theoretically, you can make anything with it… but I wanted to make some more hats for Nico. MR’s aunt has been awesome and made some for Nico. Also we got a couple from one of Dave’s coworkers’ wives. But I wanted some plain-ish ones that would go with a lot more clothes that he has… plus… he has a tendency to pull them off in the car on the way to daycare… so consequently, there ends up a collection of hats in Dave’s car and Nico has none when I get him from daycare.
So it took me maybe 2-3 hours- mostly while I was nursing Nico or watching LOST. It doesn’t feel like real knitting… in fact, I feel like I am cheating by using the loom. But its cute and easy and fast. Its a little tight right now, but hopefully it will stay on his head (I kind of have to muscle it on).
But isn’t he adorable?
Yes, I will be getting some more yarn tomorrow… I know like 6 other babies that need one- especially since the ground-hog is predicting 6 more weeks of winter.
Not much going on this weekend. Got some good dissertation work done today. Am hoping to keep the ball rolling on Sunday- which is when Dave will take Nico out to do whatever. I am taking Nico tomorrow to meet Ursie and Savannah for cupcakes (be jealous). Then we are going to hit up the post-office (suck), JoAnns (maybe) and the flea market (maybe) for some veggies and fruits. Its just that Nico is a lot more fun when he’s out in public. Very chill- I think he gets bored at home.
All for now.
