FO ~ Mittens for DS

It's been a while, but I have a finished object.

I made this mittens for DS. Looks like I finished the second one just in time. The weather has changed and now it feels like fall. I will probably need to add an I-cord to them so he doesn't lose them right away.

I ... got nothing ...

Well, that's actually not true, I got stuff, but no photos. I'm still working on the same three projects.

I was making good progress on the vanilla sock, but then I had some pretty tense weeks and it looked like my guage was getting a bit tighter on the sock. So rather than worry about having one sock looser than the other I took a break.

I'm *this* close to making the first pleat on my stole.

I have one mitten done and just need to start that second one. Is there a such thing as second mitten syndrome?

Can't remember the last time I worked with my wheel. That makes me a bit sad.

There is lots of other things going on though. My son started Headstart. He's just loving it. I'm slowly adjusting to be the parent of a child in school. I'm still in awe of the fact that it's been 4+ years since he was born.

We also got the redesign done for work. I think it's pretty amazing that we accomplished in 3 months what other newspapers usually mess around with for a year. The web site is scheduled to debut Oct. 1.

So, a lot of changes at work -- in the whole building actually. It's been a crazy year.

In short, lol, I'm still here. Just trying to make sense out of the crazy that my life was for a while. It's bound to be crazy for a while longer. It better, cause I really miss my wheel and knitting.
