First Week of Housewifery

Well, I've now been doing the housewife thing for a week. Last week was spent cleaning up the kitchen, in and around taking care of the baby. I'm rather pleased at the progress I made. I'm hoping to work my way around the house, though at this rate, I'll get through the house in about two months! Ah well, any progress is progress, and the house has been rather neglected for quite some time - it is going to take a while to get it whipped into shape. I had planned to hit the living room/dining room area, this week, but unfortunately, I seem to be coming down with something. Luckily, it seems to be mild, so far, but I've still been taking care of a baby all day, while sick. I've been returning to the "when the baby sleeps, you sleep" method of getting through the day, and figure I'll need to do that, until I'm feeling better. In addition to not liking being sick, in general, I figure that the milder and shorter I can keep this, the less likely KatyBeth is to get sick, as well. Really not wanting to have a sick baby, for so many reasons, I'm not even going to start listing them. I keep reminding myself that with luck, I'll be better in just a few days, and then I can get stuff done, to keep myself from chafing over making no progress on much of anything, for the moment.

I suppose one could say there has been a bit of progress on the knitting front, however - this morning, I put buttons on the baby hoodie that I've been making for KatyBeth, and finished knitting, over the weekend. I also got pictures taken, and put up on Ravelry. I've cast on a "chewy cloth" for the new baby nephew, and have gotten a few inches done on it, though I think I might not have enough yarn to get it especially close to the size the baby's mommy requested. We'll just have to see how far it goes, and if it falls too short, I'll have to consider doing it "two tone".

In case you're wondering about the concept of a "chewy cloth", it basically came from when I got the idea to give KatyBeth a gauge swatch I'd done, with cotton yarn. It is about 6" by 6", and she likes chewing on it. It has some texture, so it probably feels good to her gums, and since it is cotton, it soaks up all the resulting drool nicely. I need to dig out more of my leftover cotton yarn, and make some more of those...
