Who knew bucketing could be so much fun? Everyone wanted to wear the Bottoms Up Bucket. It was made for Gracie but Cameron and Owens are on the needles. I keep on casting on with one strand. Why do I have a block when it comes to casting on? Thanks Becky for hosting this fun BottomsUp Bucket Along.

 

What’s knitting?

missionowenHere is Owens one-sleeved Mission Falls sweater in all of its unfinished “glory.” Why didn’t I finish this? I “adapted” a Debbie Bliss pattern, knit it in the round on a different gauge. It was all wrong. Now is my chance to make it right. “Mission Owen.” I think I am going to just knit off the existing sweater and make it a raglan. However, I may not have enough yarn to knit for Owen—all of a year and a half later. I used Chicory. Any suggestions for coordinating color/s?

graciechiccamchicNext up we have my bottomless bucket of mistakes. I knit it at the wrong gauge. Floppy city, with multiple counting errors due to television knitting. I ripped and reknit on 6’s. Why I have I become such a loose knitter? It is now standing on its own and should be finished by tonight. Cameron wants a blue one. I wonder if Owen will wear one. I will make him one anyway. You never know. Gracie was cute. I just started the decreases this morning and as she’s putting her shoes on to leave for school she wanted to know if it would be done for school. Sure sweetie.

Maryland Sheep and Wool is on for Kevin and me Saturday. Yippee. I am looking forward to meeting all you knit bloggers. Off to Michaels with my mom. I think I may knit that mitered square rug in Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton. I would like it for my kitchen. It is currently pea green and yellow with faux brick. I don’t think I will use those colors but it brings up the question—how will we be doing the new kitchen? The architect is coming on Tuesday.

 

Sleep is good April 27, 2004

That was a pretty depressing post yesterday. I am sorry. Sleep deprivation is truly tortuous. I went to bed very early last night, at about 7pm and slept. Owen was kind enough to sleep till about 6:15am. I am not sure. I heard him come downstairs and he was sitting on the couch in his pajamas with a Yankees hat on holding the television remote.

I dug up his Mission Falls sweater. It is almost finished except for one sleeve. But it is now too small. Do I rip it out? Or just knit from it as it is. I think the latter. I am inspired by Greta and Annie knitting into the mystery.

Rough days around here. I think I have written before that Owen was waking up early. He slept through last night. I didn’t though, just waiting for him to wake up. Don’t you hate when that happens? He is going through some thing right now that is driving me nuts. He won’t put his hands flat, they are permanently clenched. Holding a cup, eating a bagel…everything. I know when I am tense, I often find my hands clenched. Could that be the cause? I don’t know. There is so much I don’t know and it just destroys me sometimes. We have also seen an increase in self-injurious behaviors again. Is it the time change–still? Or environmental allergies? I feel so helpless. He seems so unrelated these days. So lost. I wonder where he is. Will he come back anytime soon?

April is Autism Awareness month. There has been a lot of programs on television about autism, on the news. I wish I knew more. Will I ever know enough? Perhaps it is time to dig up his old Mission Falls sweater and knit a prayer into it for his well-being, for his happiness. For him to find his way back to me again.
