While the majority of our weekend was spent indoors due to the rainy weather, we did have a few bursts of sunshine here and there. On Friday, Eddie took a four hour nap and Sam was determined to spend the entire afternoon outside. I really wanted to sit on the couch with my heating pad but I feel like my one-on-one time with him is going to be so limited (if not nonexistent) after the baby arrives so I set up a lawn chair with my knitting and watched him play while working on my Milo vest. I have to admit, the sun on my skin did feel amazing. It made me long for summer.
I have been coloring here and there but not too much. I have found that if I spend more than a half hour or so at a time coloring, I start to feel guilty. At least with knitting I’m producing something for myself or my family. Playing with colored pencils is just so…delightfully frivolous.
I finished Milo and after going through all my boy and girl knits, I am realizing that this baby really doesn’t need a single knitted item. May will be cool, but it will quickly warm up and the baby will be almost five or six months old before he or she will need even a light sweater. I am casting on a pair of socks for Gabe with a lovely hand painted yarn called Mountain Colors Bearfoot. The color is Mountain Trail.
I hope everyone had a lovely Easter filled with family, friends, and lots of chocolate.
