Game 7 of the Penguins vs Senators (I think?) with a cat napping in my lap. I'm grateful for the wool sweater I'm wearing and the wool baby blanket I'm knitting while Chris watches the game. It's an exceptionally cold night for the end of May. πŸ’❄️ #knittingwithcats #hockey #wool #madelinetosh via IFTTT

Power-knitting a baby blanket in madelinetosh DK weight before the kid shows up. Who's going to win the race? πŸ˜‚πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ‘ΆπŸΌ #knitting #babyboy #powerknitting #hurryup via IFTTT

Joanie says: "I see you're digging some holes in the garden. Would you be so kind as to give me your grubs and worms?" She wasn't that polite though. Followed me everywhere, screaming for whatever goodies I could dig up for her. Nothing is fast enough for Joanie. πŸ˜‚πŸ“❤️ #backyardchickens #garden #rhodeislandred #wormies #chickietreats via IFTTT

Yes. Yes we did. Two new Speckled Sussexes and a Buff Orpington. Joanie and Betty have pretty much stopped laying, which means this fall, they may meet their maker. These guys will keep the remaining ladies company. What's spring without baby chicks anyways? πŸ£πŸ€πŸ’•πŸ˜Š via IFTTT

Joanie gets baby time with Chris. She seemed to enjoy being held upside down in his arms. Cooed and clicked softly, which is just the kind of calm Joanie needs in her very complicated modern chicken life of scratching at the ground and sleeping in the sun πŸ˜‚πŸ“ #backyardchickens #goodbirdie #chickens #rhodeislandred via IFTTT

In between making a "couture crib coat," I'm working on a much-needed new apron. The Mamas & the Papas are keeping me company. Yay stupid little retro details! 😍πŸ’ͺ🏻 #diy #apron #sewing #inbetweenprojects #listeningtotheoldies via IFTTT

Chris has decided to take his down time and use it to put together a "travel system" for the kid. I'm glad he's doing it and not me. Way too much for me to get mad at here, I'll stick to knitting and sewing instead. πŸ˜‚πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ’« via IFTTT

Finally making something for the kid. I guess it doesn't feel real until you start knitting for a baby...? I love the Puerperium pattern, and I've made it for friends and family before. I had some Madelinetosh Vintage in Venetian in the stash, so that's what Sagan is getting. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜πŸ’« #madelinetosh #knitting #knittingforbaby via IFTTT

Two of the laziest chickens, Betty and Ethel, taking naps in the egg box on a rainy day. Betty doesn't really lay anymore, and Ethel is notorious for just chilling in the box well after having laid her egg. πŸ™„πŸ“ #backyardchickens #chickens #lazybirds via IFTTT
