Ha! You CAN knit with a baby!

To prove it, here is a representative sock from a pair that I started during my three hour blood sugar test during week 28 of my pregnancy. (Some kind of Regia, Charlene Schurch pattern that is reminiscent of Jaywalkers, but doesn't make me crazy.)
And here I am with a 5-week-old baby kicking around the house, and I finally finished them!


We've been busy, but not so busy that we couldn't go out to our friend Lynn's for the annual Fox Valley Folk Festival party. We tried to make it to the festival, but Jamie had other ideas about good ways to spend the afternoon, which, for him, centered on nursing.
The Fool found it is possible to fiddle and mind the baby at the same time, as long as the baby is content to sleep through an old-time jam.

Excellent sock, and that has to be the most awesome Daddy-Baby picture I've ever seen. :)
