For the last two days I've been making a big push to photograph all the FOs around that haven't seen the light of day in far too long. I've also been trying to do something even bigger: photograph and post on Ravelry everything I bought this year at Stitches West and at Sock Camp, along with the miscellaneous yarn that has been acquired in the last 6 months or so. Oh yeah, there's also the yarn I bought last year in Alaska. It hasn't been photographed yet either. How will I ever knit it all? That's it! I'm officially on a yarn diet!

I've entered 27 new yarns, which isn't everything from Stitches and nothing from Sock Camp or Alaska. Plus I entered 10 more projects into Ravelry, including less than flattering pictures of some ugh! projects. A couple of my favorites:

Left, Dream In Color Smooshy, Dusky Aurora (Rav link)
Right, Handmaiden Camelspin, Midnight (Rav link)

On the poop front, we have hit a rough spot. BoyMonkey pooped in the potty for almost an entire week. Then he went back to pooping in his diaper. Nothing will convince him to use the potty. On our way back from camping last weekend, we stopped at Toys R Us and bought a slew of toys he could get (one at a time) when he started pooping in the potty. Some are small and he just needs to use the potty once. Others are much more significant and will take a week or two of consistent potty usage before he earns them. But the toys haven't even made it out of the car yet. Every nap time we talk about it, since that is his normal poop time. He says all the right things. He even makes up new verses to The Poopsmith Song ("Not on the pillow, not on the penguins; Poop in the potty, poop goes in the potty). But he either poops in his diaper or doesn't poop at all. I guess I'll give up for now and try again in a month or two. Which is so hard to do since I know he can do it.

Starting tomorrow (well, really today since it's nearly 2am) I'll be childless for nearly 3 days! My mom will be coming up to take care of BoyMonkey and we won't see him again until Sunday evening. We're not even sure exactly what to do with ourselves beyond eat at grown-up places and sleep in as late as possible. Ahhhh, childlessness....
