It’s Hanukah and we surprise the boys every morning with a little gift for each of the 8 days.  Just little things like a matchbox-type car or coloring book, and occassionally a chotchka from the dollar store.  This photo was Jakob trying out his new horsie.  (Yes, same clothes as the party yesterday…the outfit did double-duty this weekend).  I have one of him actually facing me but it is really blurry ‘cus it’s mid-jump.

Henri got one too but wasn’t as interested as Jakob. 

I LOVE this face!  I can’t believe he’s going to be 2 in just over a month…I don’t have babies any more, I’ve got big boys and I love them!!  I just can’t stop kissing these kids…I could eat them for supper, they’re so yummy.

I’ve got a bit of a sinus cold and took some Clorisiden (sp?) which makes me sleepy, so I didn’t risk another “knitting while impaired” moment and instead FINALLY got around to putting all my knitting projects into my iphone.  Yes, I only got the iphone 2 months ago, but this project has been delayed for almost 2 years.  I keep my own records similar to Ravelry, and was using a program called MobileDB in my Palm.  When I upgraded my last Palm to the TX it had a different OS and MobileDB just wouldn’t work right for me, no matter what I tried.  I caved and started copying my projects one-by-one into their own Memos, which worked quite well to view and update, save, etc…except I got lazy and stopped adding all the backdated ones.  So I had a small group of  projects from 2004-2007 in my Palm, along with everything from 2008-onwards, but the bulk (over 150 projects) was exported from MobileDB to an Excel worksheet and I was deleting each record as I added it to the Memos.  Then I got the iphone and had to retire my Palm…and now I had records in 3 locations.  Finally now everything is in one spot with 2 backups.

Getting all the projects in order gave me a chance to update my yarn ball too.  Didn’t I mention the yarn ball once?  I keep a few yards from the yarn for every project I knit/crochet and tie it on to this ongoing yarn ball…not sure what I’ll ever do with it, but for now I like having it sitting around.

The needle is for scale.  It’s about 4-5″ high.

Finally, here is the progress so far on the Featherweight Cardigan.  It is fine yarn and will take a while, but I really like the coral color and I think it will make an addition to my wardrobe that I’ll actually wear.

  1. Nice! I love the yarn ball pic. What app did you use for your iPhone patterns? That little horse looks like what Erika rode on in the Nutcracker as a hobbyhorse. Making a sweater that’s not the cotton Rhinebeck sweater. For shame! 🙂


  2. I am so upset that I pretty much missed out on Chanukah this year, spending most of it in the hospital It really didn’t feel like the holidays for me this past year.

    Interesting yarn ball idea!
