Goodbye to Pink

I finally ditched the pink template and settled on this pretty plain one. Yes, it's dull. I think once I'm able to post pictures it will look tons better! I've also fooled around and added a couple of links. I think I might actually be getting the hang of this!

On the knitting front: Big B has always wanted a hat with earflaps. I've finally found a pattern that I like and I've started work on it. This will be my quick, mindless project while Baby's dress comes together. This hat will be amazingly ugly and that's exactly what Big B wanted. I'm not sure why, but that's what he wants. Posting a picture of that crazy hat will be well worth the cost of a digital camera!

At lunch tomorrow, I'm supposed to teach a co-worker to knit. We'll see how this goes. I'm self-taught so I'm not sure how much I can pass on to her....except maybe what not to do! She's already chosen a scarf pattern from the current issue of "Vogue Knitting". You can see it at: It's the one on the cover. That seems simple enough. I copied all the yarn and needle info for her. We'll see how it goes.

Wish me monsters! (Gotta be a BTVS fan to get that one!)

Croup de-tat

Baby is finally past the croup and into the lovely, "I'm just a bit congested" stage. (Actually, I've joined her in congestion. The pollen here is horrifying and everyone's nose is just nasty!) She's sleeping better which means we're sleeping better. Well, Big B is sleeping better. I've become a raging insomniac. Did I use my awake time to knit? Not this time. I looked at other blogs, played some blackjack and lamented the fact that my blog is just so damn dull.

I need pictures, a better template...something! I'm super new to blogging and, although I've actually made a couple of webpages, that was a while back and I remember nothing of it!!! I'm considering backing this blog up and trying something fresh. Hm.

Our home has completely gone to hell while Baby's been sick. Poor Big B is trying to catch up on yard work and, in between checking on Baby, checking email and cleaning up, I'm trying to get our laundry done.

So back to the boring blog issue. I'm going to do a little research and see what I come up with. This pink template is just killing me!
