Knitting

I can't believe how much knitting I have gotten done in the past month! I am crazy knitter! I started and finished a hat for my dad (I think he actually liked it). I finished one sock for me to use in the hospital. I haven't even cast on for the second, but I'm not in the hosptial, so I don't feel any desire to finish it. I finished seaming up one side of the neverending Aran. I finished one whole repeat on my DH fair isle vest. I started a sweater for Ayanna. It is going to be fair isle, but I am still stuck in the one color ribbing on the bottom. I am knitting with size 0 needles. 204 stitches around! I am almost done with 2". I am making the 24 month size to make sure I don't give myself too much stress and she will get a lot of wear out of it. I am making her a baby blanket from Stitch n Bitch. That one is going rather slow as I don't like knitting with two strands at the same time too much - it is going rather slow! I am trying to figure out what colors I want to use for 5 stockings to be knit by next Christmas. I have them mostly charted out on graph paper, but now I need to decide on colors.

Also, the one year anniversary for my blog passed early in December. I knew the anniversary was December, but I was a bit busy and didn't check the date. I figured I would acknowledge it after I had a baby - so here goes:

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY JEN KNITTER!!!

Ayanna is doing very well. She doesn't cry too much, and she sleeps ok. Usually 3 hours at a time. Sometimes more. I am feeling at about 85%. I am too scared to use a vaccuum, or pick up anything too heavy, but I was able to shop at Winco for 2 hours yesterday with no pain or fatigue. C-section was so much the way to go for me.

That is all for now, I wanna go cram in some more knitting time!
