The adventures of Super Mom

Last night my childcare baby left at 5:50pm. Then I went outside and pulled the clothes off the line, went down the road to buy Milk and Mayo (and tuna and cereal cuz it was also on the WIC check), came home to where I had left SuperDad with the kids, fed the boy, got pooped on by the boy, changed the boy, hand washed his soiled onesie, scrubbed my hands clean, went to the kitchen to simultaneously cook dinner, wash dishes and scrub down the counters. THEN I ate dinner and washed more dishes, started the dishwasher; fold,sorted and put away the clothes; got the boy dressed for bed, fed him again cuz he wouldn't settle and gave LG a bath all by 9:00 pm. Woo!

Burp cloths!

When I was pregnant with both my children I attempted to knit them a blanket. LG's didn't get very far and it was the first and last thing I knit for 4 years. I began knitting hardcore for a while before I even became pregnant with the boy so I was convinced that I would be able to knit my son a blanket, I chose a beautiful pattern full of lovely cables but no I couldn't do it...why you ask? Because blankets are just too darn big! I'm an impatient person and I enjoy having a finished project in my hand 2 weeks after starting it, a month max.
So my adorable son has been spitting up all day and everywhere and I decided I would use some scrap yarn I had to make him a burp was a simple pattern just plain stockinette stitch with a garter trim. boring! then I found a basket weave pattern and I LOVE it! it was so simple since it was the same stitch pattern whether I was working the back or the front (well it was that way for 6 rows and then 6 rows of it reversed) And now I want to make so many more for the boy and for anyone else I know who will ever have a baby! I used Sirdar Baby Bamboo for this just because I had it laying around, this is the yarn I got to actually make his blanket with!
