Well, it's been a month since the arrival of the Second Princess. Some nights, I manage to get some sleep. Some days, I feel like I'm coping. Most days, I'm amazed that the Dude and I managed to create two beautiful little girls.

In spite of the demands of parenting, I have managed to do a spot of knitting. I have one Cedar Dancing Sock done, despite not being able to figure out the cast on. I quite like this pattern. The increases occur as you knit down from the ankle, so you don't have to worry about a gusset once you turn the heel.

The colour of these socks leaves something to be desired. It is G-Rocks from Blue Moon Fiber Arts. The colours are bright and vibrant but not really doing it for me. They may end up on the Christmas gift pile.

And in other news, I fit into my pre-baby jeans today. Progress, indeed.

Progress all round! I love the socks. Can't wait to get my hands on Bordhi's book.

Pre-baby jeans in 1 month... impressive. You look great, and so do the socks :)
Hugs to the 2 little princesses from me!
