Trying Something New

For Valentine's Day, Andy and I have made it a tradition to make each other gifts.  So far the tradition is also that we don't actually manage to get them done BY Valentine's Day.  BUT, in a fit of forward-thinking and being-on-top-of-things (which I can only guess is a leftover effect from the cold medication as it is so obviously not a part of my nature), I started Andy's gift yesterday.  Any guesses?

That's right....pajamas AGAIN!  I promise, I really don't have a monomania for pajamas...well, maybe...but these are cotton and will be short sleeved, so they should be nice for summer.  My little sidekick felt the need to help as usual, until I distracted him with an organization project that must have looked like more fun to interrupt

The pajamas are all cut out....and I haven't lost any of the pieces!  I hope to distract Theo enough to start sewing them tonight.  After all, the Ravelympics start on February 12, and if I'm going to do something crazy like knitting a whole sweater, I won't have time to be sewing.....or probably sleeping, come to think of it......

So let me get this right... you signed up for the Ravelympics to knit one whole sweater. These things are to challenge yourself *during* the event, not the rest of the year while you scramble like a squirrel up a greasy pole to keep up with your own 100 projects challenge! ;-)

See, I think it would have been wiser to do something like making 50 coffee cup cosies. They'd make great gifts, too!

Wishing you the best of luck for the Ravelympics and the aftermath,

Good of you to get in some quality time with your sidekick before the Ravelolympics takes over!
