If It's Fiber...

I'm involved in two new KALs. One is the Knitters of Avalon KAL, hosted by Em and Brooke. IN this one, we read Mists of Avalon, have some good discussions and then knit something inspired by the book. And there will be prizes. I must say, I zoomed through this thick book. I enjoyed it so much.

The second KAL is one that I am co-hosting with Em. (Actually I'm head of Ravenclaw house. Yep, that's right, I've ousted Flitwick.) In this KAL we are reading one HP book each month until Book 7 is released. That way, we'll be refreshed on all that has occured in the wizarding world for the past six years. There will also be projects and prizes in this one too.

I admit that I made these two buttons and that they are utterly basic. But there is only so much you can do with one hand while the other arm is holding, feeding, and trying to calm a 4 week old baby. And you are working on about 3 hours sleep a night on average.
I've started the first book again. It's great to be back in the Wizarding World. That's one thing I will miss when the book is released - the excitement of a new book and new adventures.

No knitting pictures yet again, but a better baby pic. I just took this one this morning. She had quite an awake night last night (~3:15 - 5:00). Then her brother comes into our bed just before 6 am and goes back to sleep (he's still asleep), cueing the baby to wake back up and have a nice wide awake time from 6 until now.
When's a mom to sleep?
I know that I soon as I lay my head down, Big Brother will wake up, or Little Sister will begin to cry. They just know.
I''m working on some socks right now. I really like to stitich pattern I'm using for them. It's the reverse side of the Seaweed pattern in Barbara Walker's "A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns".
I'll try to get a good picture soon.
Until then, here's one of my favorite pictures we've taken since Flora's birth. It's the Daddy holding Big Brother and Little Sister.
I think it's just plain cute.
