Blah knitting days

I have been knitting, I have nothing exciting to show. I am making a simple shawl out of handpaint yarn that starts with a cast on of 807 stitches. By the sixth row, you are down to 273 stitches. On the second decrease row, I read the pattern wrong... it said k3, *k2 tog* to last 3 st. So what did I do? k3, k2 tog across the entire row. Then I struggled through knitting through the back loops in the next row...only to discover that on the decrease row I should have k2 tog across the entire row. :( I frogged back to the decrease row and am halfway across the k2 tog row. I was so surprised when I was marking the halfway point and when there should have been 30 stitches left, there were about 100. oh wellllllllllllllllllllllllll. I'm not discouraged, I'm only working on it at work anyway. I didn't take any pictures because how many frogged pictures does a blog need? haha
Other than that, I have just been working on socks here and there. They are all projects I will finish for sure but I can't seem to stay with one pair. One of these days I will have LOTS of new socks!
Lauri gave my little guy a pirate hat today and I took his picture, dirty face and all. He didn't take the hat off until bedtime. I haven't been real thrilled about sharing pictures, but I thought he was pretty cute. This is exactly what he was saying.


Well, the adventure goes on...first thing this morning, this is what jumps in front of me:

I just can never get him without his eyes closed. Lol....he's much cuter than he shows sometimes.

Well, he must have been worried because the next thing he does is this:
