I hate to say it, but here are Knut's Christmas mittens...again. I'm down to just the thumbs now. I was planning on finishing the thumbs last night, but Ingrid had some other plans for me. So 2 thumbs for the mittens, and 2 thumbs for the lining. I'm hoping that will be an easy finish today, and tonight they will be blocked. I'm hoping at least.
The good news is that Ingrid finally took a pacifier for the first time last night. It's been 3 kids ago since I've had a baby who didn't think they were getting death-by-Nuk, so I'm excited about the prospect of having that tool available with this child. Well, we'll see if she sticks with it. If not, we'll just deal with it I guess. Elias took the pacifier I think for awhile but he never learned to hold it in himself so I took it away because I didn't think it was helping anyone. Silje was the only one of my kids who took it for about 9 months.
Back to knitting news, though. You may remember that super soft cardigan I'm working on. I was hoping to have the pattern out sometime this month. That's certainly not happening now, because as I'm working on finishing up the collar, and I've been enjoying this little baby-moon of mine, I've been dwelling on the design of it. I'm not digging the design down the side, and I'd really like to tweak it. However, in order to tweak it, I'll have to rip up most of the body, and in order to get to the body, I'll have to rip up the collar. After much debate, I'm just going to rip. I know the cardigan is almost done, but it's gotten to the point where I'm annoyed whenever I look at it, and that was not the point at all. I want to be delighted when I look at it, not annoyed. So it's about to get frogged. It's about 3 weeks worth of knitting gone, and that's a bit depressing. I'm proud of myself for making this choice, though. The event should take place sometime during nap today.
And just because my mom is probably aching for another picture:
Little Ingrid is chunking up in a hurry! Her legs are now getting rolls, and her cheeks are starting to get even more kissable...if that's even possible. She's starting to smile from time to time, and her awake time is getting more and more. She's such a little sweetheart.
Linking up with Ginny. She's the home base for this whole Yarn Along party.
