That picture up there is of Christmas knitting. It's about twice as long as it was when it was first unwrapped. So ... progress? Hopefully Keith will get to wear it once or twice before winter is over. :-P I am not used to knitting this slowly! I don't think I knit very much after Michael was born.

Anyway, the pattern is Pavement. Jared Flood writes a good pattern, and makes wonderful yarn. For some reason I always get quite a bit of satisfaction in knitting a pattern with the yarn it was designed for. It just feels right.

I am reading Lark Rise to Candleford and Evangelii Gaudium, both on my Kindle. I'm hoping to get back to "real" books soon, but I don't think that's going to happen until the babies have a more regular schedule. In the meantime my Kindle is loaded ... in fact, I think my e-book buying habits are becoming a problem, ha! In the past week I've bought this, this, this, this, and this, and I have my eyes on this thanks to Elizabeth.

Happy New Year, and a blessed Solemnity of Mary Mother of God to you all. :)

Linking up with Ginny.


  1. Beautiful knitting! Hang in there, eventually you will knit more again, and it will probably be sooner than you expect! I don't have twins, but I had a baby last spring when I also had a just-2 year old and a 3 year old, so that was pretty crazy and even with an 8 month old, I am getting quite a bit of knitting done again!
    Your babies are beautiful; I haven't been following the Yarn along very well for the past couple months with the holidays so when I saw your link I thought "OH! I wonder if she had those babies!" Congratulations, they are beautiful.

  2. Ah love when progress is measured. Glad you are squeezing in knitting time in between baby bad toddler time :)

  3. love your knitting! I think you will love K. Norris' book!!! love reading your blog updates... <3
