I've made some progress on my socks. Yes they are for me! I'm excited about them and I find my self wanting to have tons of hand knit socks in my wardrobe. I better get those needles movin:-)
Today was a day for laundry, lots of laundry. How much can four people make?! Even when two of them are quite small... Tons of laundry. The thing that gets me is L has so much and she is the smallest of us all. How can that be? i now have a load of pink. Between she and i there is always a load of pinks. I usually have whites, lights, darks, jeans/hubby's work pants, towels, and now pinks.... It feels good to get it all done, have a clean house, and somewhere in between cleaning and laundry(and the kids) there is knitting. L is to the point now where she goes off and plays by herself for a bit. Its nice that I don't have to entertain her at every moment of the day. She's not a little baby anymore.
I also had time to go through some of G's clothes. Let me explain. My SIL gives us her sons old clothes. It is very nice because I've not had to buy him anything lately. The bad thing is that she is a shop-aholic. Seriously... She has been giving me stuff for a while now(2yrs), and I thought that was a lot. He has plenty of clothes, enough that I wouldn't need to do laundry, for him, for at least a month. No lie. Well a few weeks ago she came over with an additional 4 boxes of clothes, plus another box of just shoes... Just shoes. The kid is a boy, not a teenage girl that needs 10 pair of shoes to go with different outfits. Then yesterday she calls me asking if I needed more?! Hello, G could wear things once and still not wear everything she gave us before he grows out of it. So I kindly told her we had plenty, and to take it to goodwill. That was another thing I was doing today, picking out my favorite outfits. The rest will eventually make their way to goodwill. I joke with her and my MIL that if they give me anything else, they better buy me a bigger house to put it all in. In reality I'm not joking.
Ok the purpose of the story was to seg-way to this:
I found some of G's old shoes. And although I wanted to keep them, I just took a picture and put them in one of the many boxes deemed for goodwill. I was proud of myself of being very clean sweepish:-) I can't stand clutter, and decided to do something about it.
here is L and a close up on her two teeth. (You know you can click on pictures to see them better:)
happy knitting everyone!
