Pumped up by the fact that I really and truly finished something (and also by your kind comments -- thanks again to all!), I got the baby sweater rolling anew. It's Pumpkin from Pipsqueaks, which I've knit for two other babies. No points for originality on this one. But I love the pattern, obviously. I did both sleeves lickety-split -- no real Sleeve Hell when you're knitting for a newborn -- and am now about one-fourth of the way through the hood. I'm using the Cotton Patine I bought a year ago for a top for myself. It's a somewhat sophisticated shade of blue; I'll sew a goofy duck on it or something, maybe. Or not.
Clark's birthday will, God willing, predate the baby's arrival by a month and a half...does this mean I'm working hard to get his vest finished, as he has plaintively requested? Poor guy. He's already total chopped liver next to the baby!
