Another one with no pictures.

Sorry about that. But knitting is a two handed task, as is baby cuddling, so picture taking has been right out. Isn't 4 months old a little early for separation anxiety? It's the best I can figure out for what's going on, though -- or else, my little trooper is finally actually teething. People have been predicting it for three months now, so I guess we might finally be getting there.

Project updates: the crumped lace, aka Kay's Diamonds, is on the final border. I've finished 3 rows out of 30, and it's going to take some time to get those last 27 rows done, a.) because I've got 400 stitches on a 24" needle (oy!) and b.) because my step-father's birthday is on Sunday, plus mother's day is coming up, and I'd like to knit my mom a pair of socks for then. If I survive. :)

I'm driving myself and Lucy down to Northampton, MA, on Sunday to see the Yarn Harlot! We will have a very good time; is it tacky to wear the shawl I made myself for Suzi's wedding last year? Am I showing off? Or just being comfy, in case it's cold?

Seriously, was that a year ago? Didn't even know I was pregnant. Wow.


Other than that, it's just been one of those crappy days where no one can shake their bad mood -- not me, not Robb, not Lucy. Unfortunately, the only way that Lucy will sleep (or even stop crying at all) today is in Mama's arms. It's not that I resent it, I'm glad that my daughter and I have bonded that well...but it'd be nice to take a shower without listening for the screams. Knowing that they'll start right...about...there it is.

Ah, well. This, too, shall pass. Tomorrow, she'll be using my showers to sneak my car keys out of my purse and head for the hills with some boyfriend her father and I disapprove of. I'll enjoy her while she's here.

Much love.

How on earth could it be tacky? Hey sweetie, take it, wear it, show off to the high hills and enjoy! I just wish I could come with you on the trip, and I'm very glad you get to go! Before you go, hug Robb hi for me.

Kristine!!! We have to meet up! I am going there too.
I'll bet that Stephanie will feature you on her blog, being that babies always get first dibs!

4 months is probably the right age to start teething. It is painful. I don't know how the poor things indure it. Have funny seeing the Harlot. I get to see her next month! Yeah!

This comment is actually a reply to your comment on Grumperina's blog about software which can generate PDF files. (I couldn't find any way to contact you directly) Most word processors, like Microsoft Word have this capability these days. Look under some equivalent of "save as". If you are not a windows user, you should check out Open Office, a free office suite which includes a word processor. It can save as PDF also.
