Yesterday I did a lot of finishing on the blanket, I'd say it's about 50% finished with finishing. I got into a good groove with it and Ali was easily distracted with Play-doh and art projects so I could just sit with her and work. Here's a picture of the bulk of what's done, there are some other little pieces that haven't been attached, but good progress nonetheless:



Last night, when I could sew no more, I finished Ali's first Pink & Purple sock and then cast on for the second one. I'm really starting to enjoy sock knitting. It's just interesting enough, but not a huge project so you can feel accomplished.



While cruising craftster this morning I stumbled upon yet another fun-sounding Knit-a-Long. The Yarnmonkey is hosting a Knitting World Cup -- I don't think I'm going to do this one due to the baby's due date and how awful my performance in the Knitting Olympics was, but it sounds cool.


On a baby note, I've begun thinking about what I should pack to take to the hospital. With Alison I was horribly unprepared -- I had a list and I packed those things, but once there I needed several other things which Wayne would diligently schlep in when he'd come to see me and which in the end would not all fit back into the original bag because it was overflowing -- so I want to do better this time.

But everytime I start thinking about it, all I can think is 'I'm going to need an extra bag for yarn.'
