I have learned

that having a husband, a teenager, and a pre-teen means that you cannot get on the computer in the evenings! I had all these grand plans yesterday of updating my sidebar, posting pictures, etc. Crazy me! I thought that I would actually get to the computer last night. We have TWO computers in our office. Both were in use all night. So, my goal tonight is to get to the computer before anyone else, then I can post pictures. I am going to try and update my sidebar at work today. Since I work at a construction office and it is pouring here in CA, I know that I will have some time to play!

For some fun news, I have recently been asked to be an official member of the Fiber RAOK. What a wonderful group. I am glad to see that people in this world still think of others. I am quite excited to be a part of all of this.

I have also joined Petite Purls. This is an ongoing knitalong that makes different types of clothing for stillborn babies and loss of an infant. I should have a link to my sidebar up today.

I have also been knitting. I started my niece's sweater last night. My SIL bought me some yarn to make her one. I am using the 'sweatheart sweater' pattern from Knitting for Baby by Melanie Falick. The yarn that SIL bought is Plymouth Encore in sage for the body and purple for the intarsia heart. I am almost done with the back. I have also been working on 'Drift' for my daughter from Rowan #30. Long, long cardigan in all black. I should have both of these done this month. They are easy stockinette, just have to make sure that I don't get bored.

For all of you Thingalong knitters, I have gotten to the cardigan border and have lost some of my momentum. I think I will work on it for an hour tonight so that I can get past that. I will also try and post a picture of my 'thing' tonight.

Goal tonight: update blog with pictures! Get on computer before kids and hubby do!

I'm exactly where you are with the Thing. I think I'm just a row of two from being done with this part...but I'm sill not picturing it. Wish I knew what it was supposed to look like!

Good luck getting some computer time! Looking forward to seeing your Thing pics (I'm not brave enough to try the thingalong yet so I'm living vicariously through the rest of you :-)
