feeling sheepish

Joining in the Yarn Along with Ginny this fine Wednesday morning:
My crafting mojo has been on the wane a bit lately -- kids' tummy bugs, lack of sleep, and our first plane trip with kiddos (just Minneapolis for Easter) have taken their toll on my free time, not to mention my general sanity. Hoping to get back in the game with this easy age of brass and steam kerchief and Clara Parkes' Knitlandia, which is off to a good start.
 Tummy time again? Really? 

B is wearing her little garter cardi -- so sweet. The proportions are just perfect for B, which is a rarity for my long-armed, long-torso babe. I underestimated this sweater and didn't realize just how cute and cozy it would be. The yarn is Beaverslide Dry Goods Fisherman Weight, and it's wonderfully sheepy and natural, with beautiful heathered colors. If I didn't already have a yarn store's worth of wool in my house already, I'd buy more right now!

Glad to hear I'm not the only one with a houseful of yarn!
B is darling -- with or without the sweater!
I have Knitlandia on my Kindle but haven't started it yet.

I read Knitlandia during a recent plane ride. Quick book but enjoyable. My DD threw up Wed night, so I sympathize and hope that everyone in your household is feeling better soon and that you have some energy to knit. (sjn821 on Rav)
