Yup, I'm a follower...
Yes, this is becoming a very boring blog with no pictures and no interesting reading. Please bear with me, y'all! It's tough blogging and designing, because everything I'm knitting is top secret. It's kind of a bummer. Hopefully I will be able to start linking to my published works soon.
In the meantime, know I'm knitting my little fingers off for the Knit Net sweater, which will be debuting in February. Unfortunately, you won't be able to see it without a Knit Net subscription, which is $12/year. And it doesn't look like you can buy access to individual issues... Hopefully I will be published in a print mag soon, and you'll be able to just go buy the issue (or check it out at the library).
Just for you, Mom, here's a little udpate on the kiddos (sorry, no pics!). Owen is over his ear infection, but he's incredibly crabby so we're waiting for those top teeth to pop through. In the meantime, he's driving us absolutely crazy. Sydney was never that bothered by her teeth, so we got spoiled. I can't imagine what it's going to be like when Owen is working on his molars... Who needs sleep, anyway?
Sydney and I took a class at The Children's Gym last night. It's kind of an early gymnastics training center for kids under 6, and we had an absolute blast. Sydney jumped on the trampoline, walked the high balance beam a couple of times (I was very impressed with this, since she doesn't like heights - just like her mom), and swung from the rings and the uneven parallel bars. Bill is skeptical about this whole thing, since he's anti-gymnastics in general (he says that any sport where athletes train so hard they delay puberty is not a sport for our darling daughter). But the class before ours was the 4-6 year-olds, and they were not at all advanced. So I don't think he has anything to worry about (plus there's the added fact that Sydney is a little klutz and won't be winning any awards for her gracefulness anytime soon). It was a great class for her because she's in that stage where everything is all about the physicality - she's always running, jumping and throwing things. And it wore her out. She fell asleep in the car on the way home and slept all night! Yay!
