Yikes it's been awhile!

I didn't mean to disappear from blogland again, but I am trying to get my priorities straight. You know, like why should I blog if I am not taking care of my family (cooking, cleaning) or so exhausted I don't want to go to Bible study let alone daily quiet time, or just out of check with the world I live in.

But I think I've gotten some balance! Things are good at home and my new office at school! Math is progressing, so now the blogging. Don't worry I have been knitting...it is a must for relaxation! I think I mentioned that I have some serious baby knitting to do (two maybe three different babies to knit for....not my own....just don't want rumors starting)
Pattern: Ribbed Baby Jacket by Debbie Bliss
Yarn: Cottonease (1 skein!)
Needles: US 8
Mods: Well the ribbing is supposed to be a little longer (3 cm more) but I ran out of yarn and thought it looked fine shorter so I just called it done. I made a simple crochet loop for the button instead of a snap!
I don't know if this is going to a girl or boy....but I thought it was a fun gender neutral color. Not the standard green/yellow but not blue enough to have to be on a boy :)
and then the perfect button! This is going to a friend....she knows me so well and knows my love of giraffes so I thought it would make her smile!

Adorable baby jacket and the button is so cute. No baby knitting for me right now. No one else in my family and friends circle is expecting right now.

She will smile! And that design looks to be comfy-fitting for baby. (In complete agreement with priority-setting.)
