The 20 hour day

I swear, someone has to have taken at least 3 or 4 hours off the standard day recently. Otherwise, I just can't explain how I'm getting so little done.

The Little Whirlwind is now 15 months old, and walking. So she's clearly taking up lots and lots of time. But then the little cuddles and kisses make up for that. As does her hugely expanding vocabulary - interestingly, every animal appears to say 'quack'. Her little friend apparently thinks every animal says 'moo'.

But I still can't figure out where the time is going. I haven't written anything in months. The house is a disaster and I'm lucky if I manage to cook one proper meal a week.

But somehow, in all the chaos, I'm managing to make great progress on Rogue. I put most of the progress down to Aileen and the This is Knit Sweater Help class. I mean, she even managed to convince me to try steeking...

New skills learnt just by doing Rogue:
- spit splicing
- new cables
- double increases
- and, hopefully, by the time I'm finished - steeking

And that's before I even finish the body.

Hmm... perhaps I've figured out where those extra 4 hours a day have been going....
