Baby’s next book ~ 2006-08-31
I just stumbled on this absolutely fabulous idea. A children’s book by the Beastie Boy’s – A Horse named Paul Revere.Oh! And there are more:
Oh MY COOLNESS:
Links to kids video’s on YouTube.
I had no idea this stuff was out there. Our kid is going to be so warped!
Amazing Progress on Lace Shawl ~ 2006-08-29
Guess what? Heidi from Step into my Thimble has put together a page listing children’s books with fiber, sheep, or knitting in them. Heidi is the clear winner of the Librarian of the Day award. As another prop to Heidi, you should check out her Etsy shop. Cute stuff – too cute to resist (TCTR).
Ha! Remember when you used to write that stuff in yearbooks? BFF, TLA?! I was out with my Beantown girls a few weeks ago and we had ourselves rolling in laughter with our book signing suggestions for Debbie. “Have a great summer!” “Love ya!” “Thanks for a great year.” And my perenial favorite: writing “I signed your crack” on the crack of the page.
(appropriately blurry, considering the content. it doesn’t list a cosmo!)
Enough about that….have I told you that I’m knitting lace? Check out this (lack of) progress. I have knit zero stitches on this since I last posted it:
Ohhh, ahh….thank goodness the Bookish Girl is back to posting she is so full of surprises….
Welcome to my new world ~ 2006-08-27
Ah, see, it’s not really new. In fact, I purchased this URL a long time ago. It sat for awhile. I designed a new site. I waited to tweak it. I’m on WordPress now and it a whole different coding challenge for me. I had it just about ready and then, I decided to upgrade my WordPress software. So, it’s not ready but really – at this point, it never will be. Welcome to my new world….not really ready, but never will be. In the best possible way, of course.
As I mentioned in my last post I loved hearing from you all. I know you’re all out there but it’s nice to hear the choir of support and love. Mwah.
There were tons of questions in the comments and I’d like to take this homecoming opportunity to us them as a spring board for – the virgin post.
Norma asked – Is Daryl going to have a Brother Daryl, and Another Brother Daryl? Now, for those of you who are not American or are younger than oh, say 30, you may not know where this comes from – the show Newhart. This is exactly what I said to Rob when he started calling the kid Daryl. Since then the child has been referred to as: Apple (Fiona) and Jack (Lemmon). Each of these were brought on by the baby book descriptions comparing the size of your child to an Apple and a Lemon. We’re hilarious I tell you.
Rebecca mentioned that she couldn’t wait to see the baby’s library. A bookish baby this will be however, the library grows slowly. We have been waiting to purchase items because we are fortunate to have so many around us who are willing to share the booky love. Baby’s first books were from my friend Jess. They are from the “Baby be of Use” series and they, seriously, made me pee my pants I laughed so hard.
I was in a local discount store this past weekend and I found this book…
This is a reprint of a favorite of mine. One that I had totally forgotten about until I saw it. Ah, to be young again and easily amused by Grover.
That’s the end of the baby library…it will improve vastly over the next few months.
My favorite Cynthia (who is now a Boston girl, go give her some love) asked, whatcha gonna knit for him/her? At this point we have a single bootie. Then I got bored and moved on.
Rumor has it babies have two feet. I suppose I’ll have to knit another for it to be functional. I am holding off all other knits until the sex of the child has been confirmed. Our appointment is in 4 weeks – if all goes well knitting will commence then.
Fannie Pie mentions that, “There are some wonderful baby books with knitting in them when you’re ready for the bookish baby bedtime stories!” Susan, bring them on! But, if they have boring grandma knitting a boring afghan we should probably just leave them in the library. Or burn them or something. Ekkk!
Lorrette wants to know if we’re reading to the baby yet. We are not, but we have big plans. Rob has lists of music to play for the baby and has decided that he will read, On the Road by Jack Kerouac. Rob is a big Kerouac Fan and reads this every fall. I imagine this will commence as soon as we find the damn box the damn book is in. I am so tired of books being in boxes. I miss them. Wahh.
So I have a question? Could all of you knitting doctors get together and travel on over here to advise, deliver, and medicate me? Too much to ask?
Dear Allision is a bit nervous about her drinking water. “…But I am getting a little scared. One by one, I’m watching women around me get pregnant (well not watching them get pregnant but you know what I mean). Is there something in the water? Here’s hoping my Brita filters it out.”
Here’s a story for you Allision. I live in a three family house. Each floor is owned as a condo. We own the second floor. Our neighbors upstairs moved in shortly before us, the neighbors below us about 8 months after us. Rob and I were unmarried when we bought (I bought), J and G the couple upstairs were unmarried when they bought (she bought), and E and W downstairs were unmarried when they bought (together). We are all about the same age, education, etc. A very strange thing that we all came here under the same circumstances. Then the weird stuff started to happen. Rob and I were engaged the day we closed. J and G were engaged about 3 months later. E and W were engaged about six months after they moved in. Weird. Marriages were celebrated. We found out last summer J and G were pregnant. A bit of a surprise for them. They gave birth on Feb 21st 2006, which as I remember was little E’s due date. Does that day sound familiar? My due date is Feb 22nd, 2007. Dude, not only are/were J’s and my cycles synced but we also conceived at the same time one year later. WEIRD. When we told everyone here that we were pregnant we told E and W that they better double up this time next year – because, clearly, there is something in the water.
My reading has changed a bit.
Thanks to bookish Cathi for sending the bulk of these my way. I am a fairly pragmatic person and like to have all the information on hand so that I am empowered to make decisions that are good for me and my family. Each of these books brings something different to the table. I have favorites…but overall any information is good information in the sense that, even if you don’t agree with it, you come to realize why and how.
And that, I think is just about the end of this post. Most soon..if I can get my shit together.
The Baby ate my blog ~ 2006-08-15
All the love out there must of killed them. Thank you all, I totally know how you feel – because I have felt the same for all the other knitter baby birthers out there. It’s so exciting. And fun. And exciting.
More to follow…

You’re not the only one who was surprised by this news. It took me 7 weeks to clue in and even at that point I wasn’t convinced.
