Crazy? Me? Yes, thanks.

As soon as I saw Norah Gaughan's Loppem, I had to have it. The bummer is that the pattern has a lot of errata, and definitely requires more concentration than I think I can actually muster at present, thanks to the twins. Also, some days, I don't even have the time to bathe. So, what's a girl to do?

I'm not sure what I am thinking, especially since I have many simple projects already on the needles that I haven't touched in months. It's taken me about two days to knit those 15 or so rows that you see there, sneaking in some knitting time between feedings, baths, diaper changes, screaming, etc. I want to wear this thing now, but I'll be lucky if I get it finished before next summer at the rate I'm going. Happily, the husband has agreed to stay at home with the twins tomorrow night so I can spend some quality time with Loppem and the Hurricane Knitters. Hurrah!
