So, juggling motherhood (of both baby AND dogs), working, upkeep of a house and upkeep of myself (aka exercising) - I'm finding the knitting blog is getting ignored! I haven't given up on knitting though. When I have time to concentrate, I'm working on those beautiful Majestic socks from my last post (which, by the way, has errata that I found - the fix is up on the Raverly Woolgirl Sock Club group if you need it). I finished one sock and am at the heel of the second.

All socks should be cashmere.

But since my budget/stash is not built that way - I started yet another sock this weekend:

I think it is a testament to my state of mind that I am very entertained watching the stripes form while I'm knitting. This is Austermann Step (the one with the Aloe Vera and Jojoba oil in the yarn?) and I'm really loving it. I was more than thankful that I started this new carry around sock when I found myself at the doctors' today for an ear infection. That's right - I have an ear infection. I thought that was something that babies deal with! Although I'll happily take the ear infection so the Fishling doesn't have too.



Oh my gosh, I know where you are. Little one's last year has been filled with me so tired I have trouble concentrating, but love it just the same. She is running now! Take care of the ear.


Great sock - I love knitting simple socks sometimes! I hope you feel better soon!


Love the socks. We are all in the same boat at one time or another and sometimes something has to give :).
