Houston - we have a pocket!

Here is the front of the sweater before the pocket was put on,
but the binding off of the pocket are already done:
And here it is after the white pocket lining is knit on:

This was my very first pocket. It was super exciting!
Now I have to get the front to 7 inches, do my decreases,
and then all I have left are the sleeves!
This has been a REALLY super fast knit as well!
I started the sweater on Friday I think it was, and it'll be done in a day or two!


Took this picture of Sean tonight at my parents house. We went over for dinner, and we ordered for pick-up. My father picked it up, got home, it was missing a meal, an order of French fries and my panini which was ordered straight off their menu, not altering what I wanted in it - was missing the key ingredient! It was a veal panini with provolone cheese and zucchini. No zucchini in it when my dad got home! So he called up and complained. Who does that? I ordered right off the menu - and it lacks ingredients. Also - my dad said that while he was there, there was only 3 people at 1 table so it's not as if they were super busy and they screwed up because there was a lot going on. The chef had NOTHING else to do! The sandwich was pretty good, but I will never eat there again or order for pick-up from there again.

I watched a bit of the Oscars and now I'm surfing the web doing some research for a project that I'm looking into. Tomorrow is Sean's two month check up and he's getting his shots. His 2 month shots - don't really know what they are for right now, but they're marked down upstairs. Jamie and I took bets for Sean's weight - can't wait to know what he weighs now! I've guessed 8 lbs 6 oz and Jamie's guessed 8 lbs 4 oz. We'll see what happens tomorrow! (What's scary is that he's 2 months old weighing approx. this - and most baby COME OUT weighing this weight that he's at now!) I've got children's Tempra on hand, because some babies get fever after getting shots. I hope Sean is okay. I feel for him! I hate getting shots as well. I also hope that he DOES NOT pee all over the table at the doc's office like he did at his almost 1 month check-up.

I didn't make it to Yoga this morning. I really wanted some extra shut-eye. (Which felt great by the way, but I'm still not caught up on 8 weeks worth of sleep!)

Secret Pal 10 signups close on Wednesday - I'm very excited for another round of swapping knitting stuff! I hope I get someone really awesome this time, as last round I was kinda neglected until the end! (Thank goodness for Angels right? Shelley - you rock!)

I also can't wait to see the finished project. I remember when my kids went to get their first shot. I think it was for "chicken Pox.Polio and something else. I hope everything goes good today.

OMG First of all the sweater looks fantastic! A pocket! Thats a knitting milestone! Let's see, you've conquored socks, pockets, you've done a sweater, lace, cables, double pointed needles...what's next? Intarsia? Fair Isle? You're a rocking knitter!
And I love the photo of Sean...it doesn't look like the same baby you brought home now that he's all filled out, now he looks like a real chubby little baby instead of a wise old man. I hope it went well at the doctor today!
