crossing another baby off the list

Last night I tooled around with a gift for my friend LK’s baby. LK is perhaps a bigger Buffy fan than I am; she owns all 7 seasons on DVD, whereas I stalled out at the first 3 (and she bought me season 3!). Now, I don’t know if the baby will be a boy or a girl, but I think she’ll like a Buffy-themed gift even if she has a boy—maybe he’ll grow up to have all the good qualities of, say, Xander (but not the dumb ones).

So I knit up a baby-sized Mr. Pointy.

After finishing Kiri, I had a little PPD: post-project depression. I didn’t want to knit anything else. But, of course, I had a baby to knit for–our friend BK’s baby shower was Saturday, so I whipped up (if by “whipped up” I mean took an inordinately long time, compared with my speed on other projects) a Nautie for the upcoming baby girl.

The procreating this year continues to amaze me. I added a list of babies to my sidebar, because I need to keep track of all of them and this is the best way I can think of. If you read my “the future” post, you read about six babies. Note that there are eight in the list at right. Ah yes, the dad of one baby that I decided I wouldn’t knit for has just invited us to the baby shower–in a very informal capacity, but it’s not as if I can show up empty handed. And another coworker announced the expectation of his 2nd. (Not til October! Phew!)

Both will get little toys of some kind–NOT sweaters! Stop being so fertile, everyone.

day trip to cape may

The boy and I decided to rent a car for our long weekend and play around a bit. Originally we’d thought about going away for a few days, but that fell through, so we kept the car reservation and chose to do some day trips. (We got a brand-new Saturn! Nifty.)

This afternoon, we decided to check out Cape May, NJ. It was about a 1.5-hour drive, and we were there for maybe 2 hours.
