The problem with sick kids, I've learned... that they can get you sick, too. You don't want the gory details, so I'll just put it this way: cold, cold/ear infection/adverse antibiotic response, stomach bug, cold/ear infection. I have been caring for the baby and/or sick myself almost non-stop since the New Year. I hate cold and flu season and will be overjoyed when people can go outside and the world can air itself out again.

In the meantime, I finished my February socks during February. I even took pictures of them, I just didn't get around to blogging about it. Here they are: DK weight Zauerball, basic sock recipe from the Yarn Harlot. Mindless and fast, exactly what I needed for the shortest (and hopefully sickest) month of the year. I realize that the picture is actually a smidge blurry if you click on it, but it's a pretty cute picture of the beagle, and the color changes are the most exciting thing about the socks...

I'm also (finally) making a blanket for N. I'm following the Moderne Baby Blanket pattern (Rav link) from Mason Dixon Knitting, and using Cascade Sierra. I'm really loving this yarn - it's pretty and soft and N loves to chew on it. What could be better? Pictures later, when it's not just a pile o'garter stitch in my bag.
