Almost Done Monkey Socks

How boring is this blog nowadays?  After moving from no posts a month to fifteen posts a month, I lost two subscribers!  I'd like to point out that it takes skill to lose readers just for posting at all.  Anyway, thanks for the feedback on the fabric post.  I'm pretty sure I'm just going to do two elephant pillows, but if not, I think the turquoise fabric was the other favorite.

Baby number two is still freaking me out on a daily basis.  While I got the full results from the amnio and the news is that the baby is good as can be, I'm still a paranoid mess.  For reals, I hate kick counts.  If this baby is sleeping for about an hour during the day, I start to have mini heart attacks where in I'm convinced the baby is dead.  Then it kicks me about fifty times two hours later, and I'm reminded that I'm paranoid.  (Still, why hasn't the baby kicked recently?!  For reals?)

In further crafty news, my Monkey socks intended for a special person in my life are almost done.  They only took more than a year to complete.  Luckily, when I threw down a challenge to Helen, she actively ignored the challenge to instead knit on sweaters, cowls, baby blankets, and all types of other things.  I'm going to beat her handily even though she started a sock up.  Just goes to show that if you want to win a challenge, make sure to challenge a person who is not even trying.

Ack! I should have sabotaged yours when I had the chance. "Here, Bon Bon... Want a nice yarn ball to play with?" I'll get you next time, Gadget!

JEN! You're nuts. You're not supposed to do kick counts until 28+ weeks!!!!!! Before then, baby is not big enough to feel every little movement...

We lost subscribers (the two that we had) because we hadn't updated and RSS got hacked. Too busy to figure things out still.

You probably shouldn't worry about the kick count. The midwives at the hospital kept on asking me about kick counts and they were relatively low for a twin pregnancy...the girls were just kicking internal organs instead! This just led to unnecessary sick time taken going to be monitored at the hospital...
