Knitting progress has been, admittedly, pretty slow these last couple of weeks. The body of my Tea Leaves cardigan remains unfinished for any number of reasons. The finishing of the newest issue of Alphabet Glue, for example. Or, the strep throat thing. There's that. But honestly, I've mostly been slowed down by the need to wind a new ball of yarn to finish the body with. For those of you who are perhaps unaware as to why this would be an issue, you can catch up with this post.
But this morning, as the baby played in a basket of blocks, I decided to get out the swift and just get on with it already. Of course, the block thing was short lived, and before long, I found myself needing an additional distraction to keep Z. busy while I wound the ball of yarn. I plopped him on the kitchen floor with the following items:
1 saucepan and and accompanying lid
1/2 cup water (I know, terrible idea)
1 wooden spoon
3 dinosaur magnets
1 coffee scoop
1 large paintbrush
None of these items were used as I had intended, but they did buy me about four minutes of yarn winding peace.
Also, I suspect that over time, as Z. gets more active, this blog might just become a collection of blurry action shots of my children, who apparently never stop moving.
Good luck out there.
