Still not convinced I'm the world's slowest knitter yet? Check out my ravelry page regarding this project. Two months to whip up a baby vest? Geesh. Lesson learned; do not pick a cable pattern knitting project for knitting whilst watching movies knitting. This photo shoot was carefully orchestrated to keep the blaring mistakes from hurting your eyes. See how much I love you?
How stoic my little man looks wearing his new vest. I presented it to him and he says, "ooooo, pretty!". This guy is going to grow up to be the sweetest SNAG in town. I used leftover yarn from my Spring Oatmeal sweater to knit this up; both to be frugal and have something handy incase a Motherboy contest ala Arrested Development presents itself.
Looking at these pictures just makes me want to give him boob. We have commenced the process of nightweaning this week. Kale has been going through epic nursing bouts during the night that have been driving me and my hormones cuckoo. I decided I needed to spend a night over at a girlfriend's to see how the boys would cope without me around so I wouldn't have to hear him cry and succumb, bringing us back to square one. Plus I was convinced he would be able to smell my ladies from a mile away (luckily my buddy lives two miles away).
Turned out pretty well after all that fretting. Now at bedtime I nurse him until he falls asleep (only takes about ten minutes) then I sneak out of the room and eventually crash myself in the spare room. Here I enjoy an uninterrupted, sweet slumber and have a taste test of new found night life freedom. I'm going out to knitting tonight with my ladies (my my ladies, not Kale's my ladies) and plan on staying out later than my usual curfew of 7:30. Maybe I'll even stay out until 9:00 tonight. CRAZY!
