Life and all that

So, we are better now. Poor Megan got the mild version of the cold/bug which unfortunately just dra-a--a-a-a-a--a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a--a-a-a-a-ags on.
Last night Norah stayed in her own bed all night and since I switched my iron pills to reasonable hours, all is well there too.
In knitting land, the February Lady's Sweater is complete- except for buttons.
A Better Bucket is complete - but is definitely not better.
Wedgette is on the way but I can't get gauge on the sleeves.
My rainbow sock has a mate being made - just before the gusset increases.
And in the queue??!?!?!?
more stuff than I know what to do....owls, a vest of some sort, a tank top, another hat or 7,... and the list goes on.

And somewhere in my house something is beeping. I have checked and turned off the cell phone. It isn't the camera. The carbon monoxide sensor is fine, the fire alarms are fine. The portable phones are all on the chargers. The indoor outdoor thermometer (all of which is inside) could be at fault, does one tell? There is the ear thermometer - I will go check that. not the ear thermometer either.
This is interesting to say the least - oh and it only beeps a lot when you are sitting doing something, as soon as you get up....all quiet on the housing front.

Okay on the inside maybe - outside it is blowing and raining and blustering... well maybe spring is coming in like a lion?

hmm i wonder if the beeping is that computer thing of Megan's... nope, not that either.

Happy Valentine's Day!

We are getting lots of loving around here as Norah and i have been home sick since Wednesday - she has infected ears and I have a cold. Poor Megan is putting up with us.
I finished the February Lady's Sweater - with exception of buttons and cast on Wedgette, just for fun. Too sick today to knit. Anyone know a good cleaning service - that is quiet and will just get it done?

Happy New Year! and February...

I haven't been around in a couple of months.
You likely noticed. I've been lurking and ravelrying, just not blogging.
I've also been knitting. I have a slew of FO's - even blocked ones.
They may make it up in pictures.
It will likely take me a while.

Just a moment while I go look:
This is my little Diva showing off her Blythe and 'our' neck wrap, based on this pattern.
This it my big Diva showing off her Monica. It was modified to be less ruffly cause of the way I knit it - another will be made with the correct ruffle.
And here is the big Diva of the household modelling her coordinating Grasshopper scarf and head wrap.
You can also link here for my other photos.
I have been successful in my yarn diet - to date only 5 skeins bought since the end of June.
I have made myself a promise that I must finish the February Lady's Sweater, at least two sock yarn projects and one more sweater sized item before I can buy anything else. Argh.
But I have had more money for, well, paying the bills.
And yes, the renovations are done for now. But my bathroom is a disaster.
