Anywhere but here.
Today is one of those days where I don't know where I want to be. When I'm home, I want to go out. When I'm at school, I want to be at home, and when I'm at work, well, I never want to be at work. But I just don't know what I want to do or where I want to go. I just know that it's not here.
Finally got around to taking a picture of the sweater I knitted for the grandbaby. I used Caron Simply Soft, and made it a little big since Baby was born in August and won't be wearing it for a few months. She's already outgrown the gorgeous hat my daughter made for her, though she did have the best hat in the nursery. And we can always make her another hat to match. I got the pattern from the book Style Your Own Kid's Knits. I must admit that when I first looked at this book, I wasn't too impressed. The motifs in the back all looked my then-6yr-old had drawn them. But I received it as a gift for my birthday, and I love it. I'm thinking about modifying the basic pattern for the knitting machine, and making matching sweaters for Baby and my younger daughters.
Baby had her first official doctor visit yesterday - she's up to 8lbs. 5 oz. (a gain of 17oz. from her birth weight) and has grown 1.25 inches. She's awake more during the day, and about three times a week we can get her to sleep for 6 hours at night. Right now her mom's giving her a bath - which she doesn't seem to be enjoying too much.
As for myself, I'm off to bed. I guess I finally figured out where I want to be. Asleep.
