Where'd all my time go?

Wow, who'd have thought a baby would cut into my knitting time so much?! There are so many things I want to knit at the moment, mostly for Molly but I just don't have the time, or if I do have time, I don't feel like knitting. At the moment my time is taken up by Molly (obviously), my Montessori course, housework and working on the shop on my mum's website.

I did sit down last night and finally finish the first wool soaker I've been knitting for Molly. It turned out OK but looks huge. I haven't tried it on her yet. I need to put some decorative buttons on the waistband to cover up a dodgy seam but apart from that it's fine. Now I just have to treat it with lanolin to make it water repellent.

I'm still working on the Bergere de France cardigan for her too. It feels like I've been knitting that forever and I'm still only on the back. I seem to have to pull out every couple of rows that I knit too as I keep going wrong. I blame this on tiredness and that I'm not an expert at working from charts, in fact, this is only the second time I've ever worked from one. Plus, the pattern is labelled as 'expert' in the magazine, so that makes me feel a little better. There is a lot of cabelling to be done too.

Quite selfishly, there are also a ton of things that I want to knit for myself at the moment and my Ravelry queue just gets longer and longer.

I really need to try to get some work done for my mum's online store. She wants it live in two weeks, ohh err. There's still heaps to put in the shop, why does she have to stock so much yarn?! How terribly inconsiderate of her! It is looking good though. My friends have done a great job of constructing the site, especially as it ended being a much tougher job than they had orginally anticipated. Better crack on I guess, but not before I show you another picture of my gorgeous girl!
