Not much progress

There hasn't been much knitting progress here. I've been sick and now Chandler is sick so I haven't felt like working on much lately. I sure hope all of this stuff passes soon. I've got a lot of projects that need to be accomplished. Mainly baby gifts. I still have seven baby gifts left to make. SEVEN! Seriously, the people that I work with need to take it easy in the baby department. I had to rip out the LSU sweater and start it over again. Savannah spilled a glass of Dr. Pepper on it and it had to be washed. The problem came when it got wet. It grew and grew. I thought this was very unusual for acrylic yarn, but it really grew. It went from tiny baby to almost too big for Savannah. That's a big jump since she's 3. So I started the sweater over with smaller needles and a much smaller gauge and I've reached the sleeve portion again. I'm much happier with the fabric of the sweater this time too. I hope to have it finished soon. This baby isn't due until May though. I've got to get some ideas going for the other babies. I know that two of them are going to be boys now. I have one coming up in March so that's not too far away. I need to make something simple and quick, but what? I'm stumped. Here's a pictures of the LSU sweater waiting for sleeves and a bodice.

    You're a teacher, right? Can I just say that there should be an apostrophe in "My Kids' Blog"?

    Um, not when you did not intend for the work KIDS to be a possessive word. It's a blog about my kids not owned by my kids. But thanks for reading this blog! Hope you come back soon. But be nicer perhaps in your comments.

    I hope your family is feeling better soon. Sorry to hear about your sweater problem. Hopefully it will go better the second time!
