I need my fix.

Dear Online Yarn Store,

Hi. Do you remember me? One week ago, I ordered a large amount of yarn from you. You said I would have my crack--excuse me, my yarn--in two to three business days. It has been six. Now I know what you're thinking. That so-called knittah isn't in any rush to get her new yarn. After all, she's only knit one baby hat and one sock all summer long. And she can't even be bothered to update her blog regularly.

But, listen here, Online-Yarn-Store-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named. All it took to light the fire under my knitting needles was to click "Confirm Order" on your site. I'm itching to knit, but I can't. The stash yarn just won't do. So every day that I go without my new yarn, you are assuming more of the blame for my less than productive summer. Because I'm sure that if my yarn was here, I would knit it. And, um, I'd also blog more, too. Now please release my hostage yarn.

Thank you.

Boy Parts

Per Nanda's request, here are some pictures of yesterday's ultrasound.

Can y'all see what that arrow in the second picture is pointing to? The title of that shot gives it away (and cracks me up). It's a boy!

Our little boy, who is currently nameless (oh, how I wish I liked the name Harry better), already has his first knit hat. I'm sure he will one day be inundated with OU clothing from the rest of my family, but I think this hat more accurately represents the family into which he will be born.

Pattern: Umbilical Cord Hat, by Jennifer L. Jones, in Stitch 'N Bitch
Apple Motif: from Tech Guy Socks, by Alison Hansel, MagKnits February 2006
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft from the stash
I may be so computer illiterate that I had to take pictures of my ultrasound pics instead of using the scanner, but I am married to a computer geek and am just geek enough to knit an Apple logo! Poor baby doesn't stand a chance!
