Elephant

lately i've been a knitting fool! i have been knitting every chance i get... i guess it was the four or five weeks of no knitting that did it to me. plus the excitement of finishing a project... the elephant:



i was very happy with how it turned out. the pattern was fairly easy, and i learned how to do the kitchener stitch... very cool. once you get the hang of it. you see, i screwed it up somehow and it ended up being a purl row when it should have been knit. so i had to take it out carefully and re-do it. its that perfectionism in me. here is another picture, with sunlight



gabe loves it! its so nice to see my work appreciated:)



speaking of the poor little guy he as been sick all week. it started on sunday. he threw up for the first time:( it must be scary to do that and not know what's going on. i feel so bad for him. on wednesday we thought he was getting better because he actually ate a little bit. but then yesterday he was mr cranky pants. that's what real love is all about... when your kid is being a complete snot and is making a stink about everything except if its exactly what he wants to do, and yet you still love him:) i knew he had gotten up early yesterday so i figured that, and coming off being sick was the reason for mr cranky pants. then this morning when he woke up he was burning. i took his temp and it showed 101.7 . i hate it when you cant do anything to make them feel better. i just hope leah stays well. i don't need two of them to feel icky. i had to run to the store before joe went to work to get gabe some pedialyte (walgreens band, almost 1/2 the price:), i personally cant stand the salty "fruit" drink. but gabe has been drinking it, thank goodness. well i'm off to do mom stuff... happy knitting to all!
