Here is Owen modeling–or I should say–sleeping in his Sugar n Cream Bottoms Up Bucket hat. I finished it Friday night (before we left for Maryland). Kevin and I left in the wee hours of the morning so my mom gave it to him. He refused to wear it–such the charmer. When we got back on Sunday, I gave it to Owen right away and he wore it up until he climbed into bed (and threw it on the floor). Owen wore it to school the next day and it got rave reviews from the bus driver and matron to the teachers and staff. Way to go Bonne Marie! I mentioned earlier this week that we had Owen’s IEP meeting; it went well–better than expected, I think. His teacher confessed she stole the hat off Owen’s head and wore it herself. She assured me she gave Owen his Yankees hat instead.
I have one bucket left to make for Cameron. My arm has been killing me since knitting these two buckets. I *heart* Margene! She pointed me in the direction of this website. These exercises have helped tremendously. Michelle says holding the yarn in her left hand instead of throwing with her right helped her with the pain in her arm. I would love to learn this technique. And it is definately part of my Fair Isle knitting plans.
Gracie’s yarn arrived for her Katia top I am knitting for Kimberly’s Marilyn Along. I am blatantly copying Kerstin. They say imitiation is the greatest form of flattery. At least Gracie chose blue and turquoise.
