Bad Blogger....Bad Bad Blogger

OK...I have been a really bad blogger. I have not been in the mood to blog lately. I think it is the season change along with the anticipation of daylight savings time. I really really hate the day when the time changes. I don't know about you but I miss that hour the whole time until I get it back. I think it messes with my internal clock.

In addition to that, my allergies have already started. I have been taking a lot of antihistamine which dries me out a lot and makes me very tired. It starts when the trees start to open their buds and grass starts to grow and they both release pollen. Once the trees leaf out and the grass gets cut for the first time it is not so bad but does carry through the summer. When stuff starts dying in the fall, then I get the fall allergies that go along with the dust and mold.

I have been knitting but have nothing really that I am ready to show. I have a pair of socks on the needles and a sweater that are both progressing right along. Will probably have ths socks don this weekend. It will be a while on the sweater but that is ok.

I am working on something new for a friend who just had a baby. She is using cloth diapers and wanted a wool soaker. Not being up on the latest baby stuff I did not know what these were but now I do. It is a diaper cover that is treated with lanoline to help waterproof it. So I am working on a test knit of one for her to try. I guess this has gotten to be quit a bit item with the mommies. After doing some research, there are many site selling these form bit prices. They are even selling them on ebay so you know that has to be big. Will see how this first one goes. There may be a market there.

Will have some good stuff to show next time.

Glad you are back. The soaker idea is really cute. But don't get stuck making more than 1 of those! Teach the new mother to knit some herself. Tee hee.
