I’m coming clean – I’ve been way wwwaaayyy too involved with the Olympics, to the point of letting a few things slide, always thinking “as soon as the next commercial, I’m getting started on ________________.” One of the things that I’ve gotten behind on is this blog. So, I’ve admitted that I have a problem and that’s the first step to fixing something, right?
ON THE NEEDLES
I finished that 9 to 5 socks last week without a clear cut next up in the queue project and was doing that thing that I do when I’m at loose ends (is this a pun?) and just don’t know what to pick up next – the rummaging around in my stash, lots of heavy sighs and picking up years abandoned WIPs and tossing them aside, spending more time that I should cruising Ravelry looking at patterns and making promises to yarn and old projects that I have no intention of keeping. That being said, I found some really nice yarn in my stash and found a random shawlette pattern, got it going and thanks to my Olympic obsession, started the bind off last night.

When I manage to get this project (along with Wingspan) blocked, I’ll make sure to get some close ups, Summer Flies has the sweetest picot bindoff ever.
No new pics of the Papoose, Bigmommy is too busy gestating and staying out of the over the top summer heat and Bigdaddy way busy with his new congregation, I think. Here’s one of Babydiva that is so sweet! Look how she has her head propped up on her little hand!!! OMG, can’t stand it!
IN THE OVEN
Nothing, nyet, nada. Too hot. I miss baking, might have to cave, turn the AC down to polar bear and fire up the stove, summer heat be damned!
