Ramblings about knitting, life, and whatnot.
It's so tiny! But it's the 3-6 month size, so it's supposed to be tiny. I haven't been around a baby-baby for so long, I forget how small they start off. I love this pattern though, and will have to keep it in mind for anyone else I know having a daughter. The front of the dress will have to wait until I'm done with my Cheesylove and my project for the Knitting Olympics.
Speaking of Cheesylove, here it is:
Please ignore the cat hair. My two little friends like to sit with one on each side of me while I knit. It's definitely not good with the black yarn. I'm just about done with the sleeves, and then I need to sew the whole thing together and finish the ribbing around the neck. I should be able to meet my Valentine's Day deadline. Actually I hope to finish before Friday, so I can start my Danica scarf for the Knitting Olympics. The yarn is here and ready to go:
Isn't it pretty and a little 1970's retro? I did decide to make it for my DH, and since he bought a nice, brown wool coat, I think it will match well. He promised me that if I made it, he would wear it on the rare occasions when we are out in the cold.
Well, that's it! I guess I have been knitting my little fingers off! Now I'm going to spend an exciting Saturday night on the couch, in front of the TV with my DH who has caught whatever disease I had at the beginning of the week. Thank goodness for TiVo and Net Flix.
This has been a very tough week for me. Not only was I sick, but there were massive layoffs at work. Thankfully I still have my job, but it's always hard to see your friends go. This is about the third time that people I have really cared about and enjoyed working with have gone, and it seems to get more depressing every time. I could go work for a more financially secure company, but despite all the turmoil here, I really do love my job. Unless I was self-employed, I really can't imagine doing anything else.
I have one more thing to add to my crappy, sad week. A couple that I am friends with had a kitten who was about six months old who had a heart attack and died! How sad! His little heart was not growing at the same rate as his body, and it just couldn't keep up any more. I know how much I love my cats (despite the fact they keep me awake at night, and chew on all my possession, and vomit on the rug while I'm at work), and how sad I'll be when they die, but I can't imagine what I would have done if they had died when they were just babies.
I've had so much knitting progress this week, but I haven't gotten my DSL package yet, so I can't share it with you. I did finish the body of my Cheesylove sweater, and am now working on the sleeves (both at one time). Can I just say that I love Fair Isle knitting? I know this pattern wasn't very complicated, but it was so much fun that I am inspired to try something a little more complex. I have been eyeing the Fair Isle wrap from Wrap Style. But, alas, I have more than enough yarn to keep me busy for a while so I am trying to resist getting anymore.
I hope everyone out there is having a better week than me!
