I was digging into my stash and found a ball of Sugar ‘n Cream cotton yarn – in pinks, orange, green and yellow. I decided to make a “Baby Genius Burp Cloth” from the Mason-Dixon gals. As I was knitting it up I absolutely hated the colors! It’s all neon mushed up, and I really can’t remember why I bought the yarn to begin with – probably I was hoping it would stripe, what did I know? Anyway, it was a quick knit (a few days), fairly mindless knitting and I ended up with a practical item that I won’t mind if it is covered in spit-up or drool. I put it to use right away yesterday. It looks better next to a cute baby. By the way, the baby is a ham. Seconds before I took this photo she was fussing. Once the camera was out she was all smiles:
I found another ball of Sugar ‘n Cream – lemon lime I think is the colorway – neon green, yellow and white. It’s less repulsive to my eyes.
Other things going on – we’re trying to get Lorelai to take formula to supplement while I’m away on vacation. Rather foolishly, I tried to give her a bottle of straight formula and she wasn’t having it. We’re starting slow 90/10 milk/formula mix, today hopefully we’ll do 80/20 mix and hopefully get up to 25/75 or even 0/100 by the time we leave. I’m pumping to the best of my ability, but there’s only so much!
