so close i can taste it


I finally have a chance to sit down at the computer! I’ve been using my snatches of time to catch up on your blogs and read my emails, so this is the first time I’ve had a small block of time where I can actually post. I’m not going to catch up any more, because, quite frankly, my days are boring and just blurs of more errands and more taking care of Jakob. I’ll still post photos, because if I didn’t I wouldn’t have anything to blog about!

We did do something different and special last week, though. On Friday we had Jakob’s first music class. There were about 25 or so moms and kids, ranging in age (the babies) from about 2 months until about a year. The class was hosted by a guy with a guitar, I think he called himself Loony Lorne or something. It was like “Sing-along with Raffi”…he played songs and sang and we all sang along and “danced” with our kids. At one point they all got toys and Jakob shook a maraca while I tried to keep it out of his mouth. Each week has a theme, and this week’s theme was the Beatles which was funny because we’d just seen the Beatles’ movie two days earlier, and Jakob really seems to like their songs.

Mommy with Jakob at 19 (!) weeks. Like his shirt? It says “I Only Cry When Ugly People Hold Me”. :]
Here’s my progress on the Montego Bay scarf. Since Yannick is sleeping in the other room and I’ve been tired lately, instead of watching TV until late, I’ve been getting into bed as soon as Jakob is down for the night. I loaded up my iPod with some new podcasts, and have been knitting like mad until my eyes get too heavy.

All that is left of this to knit is that little ball hanging below the needle holder. I’m going to try and finish it today, because I have this
Smooth DK that needs swatching! I’m going to try to beat the clock and knit Jakob a Hallowe’en costume this year. Any guesses as to what he’ll be dressed as?

  1. What a great idea to knit Jakob’s Halloween costume! I have absolutely no idea what you’ll make though… Yellow, Blue and Red… A caterpillar? 🙂


  2. The montego bay scarf is looking lovely! As for Jakob’s costume, that’s a tough one. A clown maybe? I was a clown once for Halloween when I very young. The yarn looks fun, so I’m sure it’s for something great.


  3. Hi Jennifer 🙂

    Your scarf looks terrific; can’t wait ’til you finish it.

    Jakob is such a little sweetheart. Every time I see him in a picture he has such a happy, smiling expression. I can tell he’s a really happy baby.

    When my son was 2, I made him a cookie monster outfit for Halloween out of fake fur. It covered him completely except for his face; there were little mittens too and styrofoam balls for the eyes. It cost about $50 to make but I was proud of it and people were so impressed, they gave him extra candy.
