Knitting content

so i am trying a lil fairisle sock. worsted weight, adapted from a Philsopher's Wool book...sock hop? i think is the title. i wanna make the fairisle booties in the debbie bliss baby book. so this is practice. it seems a bit tight....maybe after blocking, or when it is OFF the needles.
bought some deep purple glace' from berocco. do not know what i wanna make yet. but it is pretty.
tax $ came so i am making my wish lists.
i need to get just some "cheap" baby soft yarn. cuz i do not want tomake an $80 baby sweater that i have to hand wash...this is baby6! i do not have the time. michael's has these fabulous coupons this week..50% off anything (reg item) friday, plus the reg 40 % coupon. so i need to gas up the car and go to the big city.
lang coco poncho is going nicely. only on ball 2. have 7...hope it is enough.

hey there,

As a fem I need to say that anyone who tells you off for having 6 kids is not understanding the reason that we fought we the battle we fought, well not me but my grandmothers sure did. The whole point of feminism is that women have choices, no one forces us to stay home anymore and it really annoys me when people look down on women who do choose to stay home and raise children. I think that you have the hardest job in the world and I admire you for doing with courage and love. You go Girl.
And you are right not to knit a hand wash sweater, I don't have any kids and I don't even get around to washing them!

I agree with J. for sure. It's all about the choice to do whats right for you. Even though I dont have any children, yet, I see motherhood as the most important job in the world. Anything else I do, will be of secondary importance.
Changing subjects... You have a package in transit. Mailed it today, should be there monday. :D
