In Progress

I am so tired of being tired.

Most evenings I come home from work and am like some sort of zombie, shambling around between napping and complaining that I don’t want to eat/go out/go to bed… But they say this should pass soon, and it’s all for a good cause:

My first baby photo! Can you see the nose? Or the little floating toes?)

But folks, perhaps there has been a slight turn towards the light… I have been KNITTING.

Noro socks
Noro sock yarn, my own(!) pattern.

Ok, so the only reason I bought this nifty new Noro Kureyon sock yarn was because I was so brain-dean I forgot to bring knitting to knit-night, but hey, it was a good excuse for a small spree and kicked my but into knitting mode! I executed the picot hem all on my ownses at knit-night last week, and a few days later performed the miraculous feat of looking though a stitch dictionary, finding a cute pattern, and checking the math so it fit with my stitch count. (These days, that’s practically the same as rocket science!)

Simple-but-effective lace pattern, cute picot hem.

Hooray for little victories, I say. This may be coming slowly, but I like the way it’s turning out so far and it’s already bigger than I expected. Much like the baby!
