Technically it was "make a baby", because we are all about making stuff here Smiley

Oh, I know it doesn't get easier, it just changes with time. I'm actually getting almost enough sleep (probably enough, but sleeping used to be a hobby of mine, so I'm sleeping a lot less than I used to), my husband is totally involved (can't say helping, it just feels wrong), and my mom is just a quick call from here (same building, lucky lucky me Grin).
When I wrote "regular basis" I meant for stuff like breakfast and showers  Tongue

aliasgracie - congrats Smiley I hope you get past you're current "project" of keeping food down and have an easier time in the coming months.

And here is the bracelet I completed. It's based on a Kandi bracelet design that floating around the net, I just added more colors and more symbols:

and some more views:



I think I should review and update my list, but first, some sleep Smiley

haha  Some of us don't get those done on a regular basis, either. Wink  The bracelet is great!

astormorray, great socks and skirt.  (I don't think I will ever have the skill/patience for socks.)

Thanks!

It's handdyed by me, actually, dyed twice.  Initially it was all yellow with gold splotches, but I felt that would be overwhelming, and then I skeined it out for self-striping and overdyed with green, teal, and gold. 

Here's my tutorial on making self striping yarn.

I wound it into two balls. Then I started knitting and discovered I was running the stripes in reverse on one sock compared to the other.  Huh so on the leg, whenever the teal stripe came up I switched balls, so that the pattern reverses, and they don't look so odd, but about halfway down the foot, I gave up on that, and the pattern just runs whichever way it wants.

I think that the colors are so similar, that you really wouldn't notice the stripes running differently, unless you knew to look for it, but as I did know, and as I was spending hours staring at it, I couldn't just not do anything.

Alright, that was much more long winded than you required. Wink
