We now return to our regularly scheduled programming

I'm Back! The little guy is back in school, we got everything taken care of to get him ready to go back, and I've pretty much figured out a routine to get everything done in the morning. The best part? I haven't had to do my drill sergeant impression yet! I'm sure there will be a morning or two that I'll have to turn up the volume to get him going, but so far, we're doing pretty great. Finn is even helping to wake him up - one morning he barked at him and the next morning he licked his face from chin to forehead - both techniques worked. I appreciate the help, but Finn has ulterior motives - he doesn't get his breakfast until after Caleb is fed.

Anyway, now that I've gotten the morning routine figured out (for now), I hope to get back to blogging regularly on weekdays again. For those of you who are waiting on the finished pattern for MS3, I'm working on it as fast as I can and now have more time to devote to finishing it since the rest of my life is settling down. Just be patient a bit longer and it will be available soon. (I realize I've been saying this for a while but when you think about the fact that the patterns for MS1 and MS2 didn't come out until October, I think I'm doing a pretty good job of it this year.)

So, since I refuse to cast on anything else until the MS3 pattern is finished (socks don't count), and I'm pretty sure that you guys are sick of seeing gray socks, I thought I'd share some of the stash enhancement that's been going on around here.

kauniyarn


This is a skein of Kauni yarn in the EL colorway. I love the Kauni Cardigan pattern and I love seeing the way they are making up, so when Jannette started carrying the Kauni yarn, I had to get some. The color is photographing a little bit lighter than it really is: the navy is a very dark, almost black navy and the eggplant color is also very dark. The color that looks like royal blue in the photo is a darker, richer color than true royal. I have enough yarn to do the entire cardi in this colorway, but I'm not sure if the pattern will show up since the colors are so dark, so I might play around with using a different yarn for the second color.

Finally, if you haven't heard yet, KnitPicks is now doing wood needles for their interchangeable needle sets! I had just figured that wood needles wouldn't be strong enough for a set like their Options set, but apparently they've figured out a way to get them to work. I'm very excited about this because I really prefer to knit with wood or bamboo needles and I've already placed an order for some. I can't wait to see them!

Wood needles!!! Aaaaah, what are they DOING to me?!? Oh, well-they can go on my Christmas list :~) Thanks for the heads up, since I've been avoiding temptation by not going over there.

I finally ordered size four Darn Pretty Circulars after seeing them on Steph's blog and right after I got them (drop DEAD gorgeous and smoother than a baby's you-know-what), I got the KnitPicks email.

I like wood, too, and these are just SO pretty. (I used the Options for MS3 and they were a bit slippy, slidy, so I have great hopes for the wooden tips.
