What do you do with a kid who won't sleep?

Oh dear. I promised pics of the jeans, didn't I? I did try and get some photos over the weekend, but the whole 'smear the peanut butter all over my funky new jeans' look that Grumbles was sporting just didn't cut it, so you'll have to wait until they've been washed and Miss G decides to play ball. However, I do have a photo of the Tweeeedy jacket I'm knitting her - check it out!

Cute, huh? It's from the Phildar Tricotez Calin Automne/Hiver 2002 book. So far I've done the back, the right sleeve and half of the left sleeve. It seems to be going well, but I'm positive I've made a mistake in the translation somewhere, and me being me, I won't pick it up until I'm trying to sew the darn thing together. Oh well. I mean, I could go over it all now and save myself the trouble, but I'm lazy. I'll just sail right on in and curse my ineptitude later.

Not much else to report. We had a busy weekend, and as a result Grumbles is overtired, and won't sleep. She's currently bouncing in her cot, bellowing out her versions of Wiggles songs. Get some sleep, wouldya kid? We've got things to do today!


  1. What a gorgeous jacket for Grumbles! Hope she(YOU) got some rest.

  2. I wasn't sure how I'd manage with no "me" time during the day, once C stopped having a nap. But it's great once you get used to it (no, really!). I've forgotten what it was like to have 2 or 3 hours every day. Just as well.

    The little jacket is so stylish and cute. I really like the collar and the side-fastening. Gorgeous.

  3. She is just going to look adorable in that wooly jacket. It looks bulky and chunky enough to hid any mistakes when sewing together, so don't stress.

  4. My son never sleeps in the day.

    The upshot is that when he's down for the night, he's down ;)
