WIP Wednesday

Progress is still slow in these parts, but I'm working on finishing up a lot of little unfinished projects that have been lying around forever. I just finished up one of the two monkeys that I had hoped to give the kids for Hanukkah. They will now be for birthdays, hopefully. Here is the one that is finished. I'm pretty happy with how it came out.

I started a little owl back in the fall that I should have finished in the next couple of days. He needs wings and eyebrows. I'm really loving the knitted toys lately.

Happy New Year

We've had a whirlwind December. Our usual roadtrip went a little less smooth than we had planned. Because of the blizzard that hit Virginia, DC, NJ, MD and all of the surrounding areas.... well the traffic was pretty terrible. It took us TWICE as long to get to our destinations. Then Claire ended up with food poisoning and was vomiting every hour. I ended up with a respiratory infection after being at my mom's house -- I had a fever for a couple of days after we got back. We had a nice time with our families, but I'm DEFINITELY not going to be doing that drive again. I think 2010 will bring a holiday at home here in South Carolina.

I recently found out we are expecting our third child and I am very excited about that. Let the knitting of wee items begin!
