I love the saying, "And on the 7th day, God rested!" Hallelujah! I am taking a break!

You would think that after a weekend of having company, my house would still be in somewhat good shape. The reality is, after all of that frantic decluttering and cleaning, I am exhausted. The toys have arrived in places of the house that they should not be, and my knitting is in strange places.

I have been knitting like a fiend, trying to get my knitting fix all caught up. I have at least 5 days of non-knitting to make up for. Of course, Andy does not understand this explanation of why housework has gone by the wayside, but that's tough!!! I hung out with his family ALL WEEKEND LONG! I have to re-create somehow!

For example: Why is this sock, on rosewood needles no less, in the kitchen in front of the sugar bag? The real question is, why is the sugar bag not put away?

I am finding children in strange places as well! Whose feet are these?

Of course, I forgot! 3yo's like boxes more than toys.

DS is sporting his daddy's newly finished hat in handspun. I am right proud of this hat. Just the right mix of creativity and manliness. They are exclusive concepts you know!

i know the feeling! your table looked eerily familiar! why do i find bits of aerial and belle in my sheets-when my bed is still made?! how long have they been there? why is there bits of knitting all over the place, yet not a finished anything in sight?? ahhh, motherhood! save up your energy for your trip to the beach-and yay to the end of nursing! i love havinga baby but i am really looking forward to weaning-the week at the beach just about did it in for me-sand gets in all kinds of odd places!!

That is a beautiful hat (incredible colors and you spun the fiber yourself)! I'm awestruck.

Enjoy your knitting this week; it sounds like you definitely earned the break!
