Ravelympics - day 9

Wow, it's day 9 already and I'm not halfway done, oh no!!!! I had a major mess up 2 nights ago that I realized at 10:30. I thought about waiting until the morning to fix it so I would be fresh but there were still hours left of olympic knitting. So, I frogged about 5 inches of the left front and reknit following the actual directions (you think I would have done that from the beginning!) I was able to make it to just about where I started frogging by the end of the women's all around. Last night I finished the left front and cast on for the right front. I'm not too far on that yet:
In other knitting news, look what came in the mail today:
I will probably wait until Monday to try them out so I don't have to explain this purchase to my sweetie. But I don't know if I'll be able to wait that long! I really want to get the back and the left front of the sweater blocking.

Now for some non-knitting randomness. My sweetie and I went raspberry picking today!
Unfortunately the owners had just picked most of the berries to bring to farmers markets, but there was still enough for us to get 2 pints. My sweetie was a bit cranky at first, thinking we were not going to get many berries, and he felt weird cause it was basically just someone's house. But he cheered up quickly and we had a great time. The best part was these little guys popping out of the bushes:
They almost made me want a kitten, then I remembered how allergic I am and that my dogs would probably eat it! After berry picking, we stopped by the farmer's market and picked up 2 pints of blackberries and I'll be making blackberry/raspberry cobbler today and my sweetie is making some berries and cream thing!!

On the baby front, no baby yet. But her room is complete! Every thing I could possibly think she might need is in there, clothes are folded and put away, shelves are hung, and diapers are stacked and ready to go. This is my favorite part of the room, the nursing area. I'll be spending plenty of time in that glider. I'm definitely gonna have to work out how to nurse and knit at the same time!!
OK, off to make some cobbler and do some knitting!!

Julie I know we haven't met yet, but if you need ANYTHING at all after the baby comes, please don't hesitate to call me or send me an email! I can email you my number at Kenyon if you need it. I live nearby and even if you just have a baby topic question (I nursed both of mine), and can't reach your mom or sister, please call me!!
