twistin', shake it shake it shake it shake it baby!

on monday on the way to work i learned how to cable. and on tuesday i learned how to do it without a cable needle. :) MUCH faster! (thank you internets!)

what am i making? oh, well i'm making myself a pair a fetchings (pair of fetchings???). see?

fetching from knitty

this is yarn that i had knit into a neckwarmer for myself last year, but it wasn't doing it for me, so i ripped it. party!

evie's pinwheel blanket is kinda in the air at the moment. the edging that i have been doing is 'baby tears' from 'knitting on the edge'.

edging on evie's pinwheel

unfortunately, i won't have enough yarn to get all the way around... and it's yarn left over from my mom's socks. meh... i'll admit, i'm not super crazy about the edging, it keeps curling up but now that i can't do it... gah. so i'll have to rip and start over with a new edge. i just want a cute little picot edge. any advice?

evie update

she's getting SO BIG! her 4 month appt at the beginning on the month she weighed 14 pounds, 13 oz. she's 75% in weight, 50% in length. this is from the little 5 pound 2 oz booger that we came home from the hospital with! she was under 5% in both height and weight when she was born, so she's CRAZY big now! she's out of most of her 3-6 month clothes, wears 6-9 month stuff. and she's not even 5 months old! go yummy mommy milk go! pumping at work is getting old, but i'll do it as long as i need to and it seems that evie is doing well on the mommy milk so.... it's all worth it. i've also realized that i'm far deliquent in posting evie pics. here are a few new ones that we like.

What a cutie!!! I love the pic of Evie 'licking' the pumpkin. Those fetchings look great so far:)

I love the picture of her nursing, and laughed out loud when I scrolled down to the picture of her trying to nurse on the pumpkin. That is *so* something that both of my kids would've done/would do - hey, this kind of looks like a breast... wonder if I can get milk out of it?

She's adorable and good for you for keeping up with the nursing! I have never needed to pump (and neither of mine took bottles), but I understand what a pain it can be. It's all worth it, though! :-)
