It looks like I am building a fortress from Boise paper boxes in my living room. I get these boxes free from work and they are nice because they are sturdy and you can only put so much into them so they can't get too heavy. But I am sick to death of looking at them! Green is normally one of my favourite colours and that Tudor green on the boxes is starting to make my stomach clench.

I'm coasting along in my experiment of commenting in 5 new blogs every day to see what kind of response I get from people. The segues that take you from blog to blog are very interesting - Pagan Knitters to Midwest Knitters to Queer Knitters to SAHM knitters to Sexy Knitters to Bad Ass Knitters. I have been primarily using the webrings to find new places. I have been keeping track of all the blogs I have been frequenting and I will post the list of 100 when I am done for everyone to see.

You're better than me, Jo. I also surf the rings but don't tend to track my hits. Then I leave a comment and can't go back to follow up.
Really liked your crochet blanket, by the way.

Hey, I guess I'm one of the new five for today! I looked for your email address to respond to your comment, but only found a post saying that you may have to put your email address up here, but had been resisting (from a post last February!).

To answer your question, I have a fabulous nursing pillow called "My Brest Friend" and I set the baby up on that and can nurse hands free leaving lots of time for knitting! Are you still nursing your little one?

Are there days when I don't? That is the real question.

Jo said...

Stitchin' Sheep - I see your point! I definitely feel hebetudinous this morning. May have something to do with staying up way past my bedtime finishing a baby sweater...

Batty said...

I'm feeling hebetudinous too. Time for a nap!

Ha ha, yeah boxes make me twitchy too!! God I can't freaking WAIT to be moved. But of course now that we'll be able to start moving tomorrow....it's snowing. Sigh. I guess I said I missed the snow right?

Good luck, have fun w/your move!
