So I've been Naughty in a Good Way....

Every year T gets a bonus from work and we generally get money back at tax time because of the way we do taxes, so we each get $500 to spend how we want. Well, T wanted some hunting stuff which ended up being around $300 and he wants to take it from his $500 early so he would have the stuff for this hunting season. So I got to buy a few things off the internet that I've been craving and know since they are internet buys that I'm the only one that will buy them for me. So here's the list:

Knitpicks Options needle set (yes the whole set,eeeee!!!)
A ballwinder (no swift yet but i'll make do at least I'll have the winder, winding balls hurts my hands)
Essential yarn color card
Nickel plated DPNs Sizes 0-3
Needle tips for the options set sizes 13, 15, 17
Yarn cutter Antique (I thought this would look nice on one of the chatelaine pins with some other sewing dodads when I'm SCAing it)
Essential Tweed color Flint (2 balls)
Suri Dream Hand-dyed color Rose Quartz (2 balls) (This will be a simple garter stitch scarf unless someone can send me a pattern that is just as easy and quick, this is a gift I need to give in 2 weeks and I just ordered the yarn so-oooo see why it will be just straight knit, family from Texas are coming to visit and I didnt want them to freeze :D up here in Wisconsin)

All three of the Yarn Harlot's books on sale that are currently available.

And I'm bidding on some Stitch Markers on eBay so I can have a variety, although I love the ones that were given to me more than any I've seen online so far :)

So yeah I'm feeling uber naughty but it's okay because I had the go ahead from the hubby, I'm probably going to save the rest of my money for a newer nicer sewing machine.

Sorry no links or pics, this was actually a quick type while my children were doing snack, and the new wee one is screaming for some food so gotta go.


Sebastian's One Skein Hat

Here is Sebastian's Hat, I made it with US size 7 dpns on LB Microspun in Royal Blue and Lime, the pictures are under standard soft light lightbulbs so the colors are a little off, but you get the jest of it :D. And yes that is young Sebastian modeling the hat and no you wont be able to see his face, sorry, house rules. The basic pattern is from the book One Skein by Leigh Radford, I love this book and wish I owned it, I borrowed it from the Library and wish it was on my "shelf" because of all the wonderful projects it has. It's right up there in the need to buy with the Mason-Dixon Knitting and the Knitting Rules! books, the latter will probably be the first of the three that I'll buy for the convinence of size and matter, but the other two wont be far behind. I also want the Yarn Harlots first book the self titled, Yarn Harlot and I just found such a great deal on At Knit's End that I had to buy it, $1.62 is right up my alley, its used but hopefully in good shape.
My first time joining in the Round, note to self dont do this when on vicadin in the hospital after a c-section (although the c-section thing should be taken care of, no more babies for me)
Another side view. I had to do some adjustments to the depth of the hat it was to shallow for my big headed baby, I seem to only have that problem on the newborn size, hence the stripes :D.
Detailed view of the lace work.
And here is a picture from the top, I love the way this decrease looks.


Well he's here...

Sebastian was born on Thursay at 7:16am via c-section, We know he was about ready to come out anyways because I was having pre-labor contractions all night Wednesday. He is 8 lbs 13 oz and 21 1/2 inches long, and the picture of perfection. Unfortunately you wont see any pictures of him as my hubby has requested we keep pictures of our family away from the general public, too many creepies out there now a days. Anywho, no jaundice like I had worried and plenty to eat, lets just say my body is a bit confused on how much milk to make and thinks twin sized feeding would be best. He's a good eater and latches well but this is a bit much for him to take. All is well, but I have to go and take my meds to keep me healthy while I heal up, so chat with you all later.


Well off we go... next stop on the wild rollercoaster of life coming up...

Well, I'm about to be off on our family's new voyage. I'm sorry I wont be able to keep up on all my reading of blogs and groups but well the baby is calling and "he" says he wants to come out soon if not now. I've got some knitting packed up to go with me, a dishcloth, a handtowel (on my new size 7 circs from knitpicks) and the baby hat I need to finish while I'm in the hospital. I also always have my sock yarn in my purse and if I need I'm sure someone will run and grab me different yarn from home :D. I'm very excited about our new addition to come, I've got some boy clothes packed and need to go dig out a girly outfit for just in case. We have names for both genders as well so hopefully we're set there. I need to get some picking up done and some more laundry, yes I'm nesting, I know I never do laundry. The dishes are for the hubby as I can't sit to do those and I washed is damn underwear today so pbbbt :P. Well all of you out there take care, I'm hoping all goes well, and will be on again soon, actually probably before you even realize I'm missing. :D
Knit on.
