The “I’m not posting”-post

Well, I wanted to sit down this afternoon and write another catch-up post. But I can’t find my camera, my sewing machine is broken and I found my current knitting project in the dirty-laundry pile this morning. (I desperately need to knit up a hat for Elizabeth. It’s really getting ridiculous. The newborn cotton knit hat just isn’t cutting it in November. Any hat-makers for hire out there?)

And what I really want to do right now is toss another log on the stove, sit down with a cup of tea and catch up with all of you. I see the number 617 glaring at me in my feed reader–(I’ve switched to a new one, by the way–NetNewsWire. I really like it!) I miss reading your blogs. They bring me so much inspiration and sweetness and peace. So forgive the no post-post, but I’d rather hear what you have to say today.

In the meantime, thank you so much for all your etsy suggestions. I’ve written another handmade holidays feature and there will  be plenty more thanks to all of you.

And I’d love it if you’d check out my latest post. I think many of you will get what I’m saying. (and thanks to those that left comments this week. you have no idea how good it feels to see some familiar names over at my new gig.)

  1. Molly, consider Elizabeth “hatted.” I’d be happy to knit one up for her. Do you have a pattern or color in mind? Let me know, or I’m just going to come up with my own thing (and you may not want that…)!

  3. Molly, sounds like you are having a rough time of it there. Sorry… hang in, it’s bound to get better, tomorrow is Saturday after all!Your latest Momformation post is Brilliant!!! You really hit the nail on the head, I’m right there with you each night replaying those moments that could have been handled with more patience or a gentler tone.If I knew how to knit I’d send along a hat…..it’s on my list of things I’m wanting to learn, any great resources for instruction?Hope you have a relaxing and peaceful weekend!

  4. Hey Molly! We all have days like that. I still want to know when my life will return to normal play speed from fast forward. Don’t you love your blog-buddies? Look at all the offers you have already for hats. I would offer but my knitting speed is pathetic – yup – my own children never wore anything I ever knitted them because I was always finished so late nothing ever fit. Arg.

  5. We’ve had to turn our garbage pails around because things are suddenly getting thrown out by a certain little helper.

    I’ve been knitting a bunch of really soft wool kids hats in the the last few weeks, if your interested. I going to put up pictures tomorrow of the results on my blog.

  6. Molly!!

    You have so many offers already but I have a hat knitter for you! My husband’s grandmother from sweden is a phenomenal knitter and sells her wares on darlybird.com She also sells them at the toy store in HdG that sells my barrettes.

    I have some hats at my house right now! Come over this week and look through them. What colors are you thinking? She can take orders as well.

  7. Molly – We’re still waiting to hear “the rest of the story” from your post about spending the day with all the horses??? :)I’m sure Emma was in “horse heaven”.

    We were up in the cities this weekend to see our son and got to hear John Piper. I think of you . . .

  8. i really liked your tatoo idea post at parentcenter. those wordsthat kick it all off were great to read – such a good reminder.i think the post-it note on the computer is a smart compromise. 🙂

    look forward to seeing more of your handmade gift pics.

  9. I miss having your words of wisdom here on your blog…and man, are those words wise. What a great post about something we all need to remember. Having older kids, I feel funny about visiting Momformation. I need Teenformation right now. But what you said is true forever I guess…they’ll never stop being our kids. I was going to offer a hat (I’m knitting one now for my own daughter that may be a little small…) but looks like you are covered! Have a wonderful, peaceful, restful week. Well, do your best to have one.
