Roomba Unattended

This is what happens when you let a man do his version of cleaning:
yarn eating Roomba
This is AFTER I pulled the project (the dreaded Trellis scarf by Evelyn Clark) out of the clutches of the Roomba. John turned the thing on as we were leaving for international date night (which he always tells me NOT to do), and this is what we found when we got home. Everything turned out okay though. I didn't lose the lifeline, none of the stitches were gone, and my new needles came through the ordeal unscathed.
In other knitting news, here's another one of Jodie's market bags, this time in red for Shannon's birthday.
Shannon's market bag
Don't worry Shan, it'll be there. Soon. I really like this red one. I didn't change the pattern at all, well, just a little. I made the strap like I made the last one - knit from one side, then grafted on the other side. These are great gifts (right Shannon?).
I'll leave you with a family portrait. This may be one of the last photos of a very pregnant Katy. I took her for her non-stress test the other day, and snapped this one while she was hooked up to the monitor. I hope to have a picture of all 4 boys (with the other 2 outside the uterus) very soon! Her baby shower is tomorrow, so she can go after that!
Katy and the boys

I love my bday bag! Can't wait to get it. You're the bestest!

Hey, did you ever see the Saturday Night Live skit on the Woomba...go here to see it:

Katy looks great! Those boys won't know what end is up pretty soon. I sure wish I lived closer so I could help everyone! Lots of Luck!

It's a good thing the camera is back in action though. There better be lots of baby pictures! Like I even have to say that!
