The baby sweater is done. Finished. I stayed up until 1:00am on Thursday morning doing the seams and blocking it. Thursday morning, I enlisted the help of my daughters, Jojo and Sami, to get the gift wrapped and a button picked out (to be sewn on during a break).
Then I had to chop up some celery and onions and mix the potato salad I’d made for knit night (yeah for knit night!), transfer it into a dish with a cover so it wouldn’t stink up the fridge at the office, and pack all my stuff and the kids into the car.

When I got to the office, I found, taped to my door, a reminder about the baby shower. I was a bit grouchy due to lack of sleep, so I tossed it onto my desk and headed for the coffee pot. When I came back (in a slightly better mood) and actually looked at the reminder, I nearly wept.
The baby shower is NEXT Thursday.
The up side to this was that I was able to bring the sweater to knit night and show it to the ladies there.
