I started my Kersti sleeve this weekend. I love it. The colors are more beautiful than I could have imagined. I can hardly believe it was my 3rd choice. The way the colors sometimes overlap…it is just lovely. I definately see more Kersti in my future. My only issue with the yarn is the splitting but it is more than worth it. As far as the raglan pattern–I am not loving Sally’s increasing technique and I spent some time reading the Audrey Knit-along archives. I am varying my increases between the second and third stitch depending on where I am in the rib pattern. It looks much better. I didn’t rip it out and reknit the first few increases as I have read Kersti doesn’t rip well. It’s all in the seam anyway.
Cameron and I got Gracie from the airport on Saturday. It was a bit of a disaster with delays on the outgoing flight where Gracie was expected to arrive and a gate change that I wasn’t notified about. I found her but it was a bit disappointing that American Airlines employees were so slack in their care of an unaccompanied minor. Gracie had a fabulous time but was glad to see us. ‘Course she wanted to know who the sweater was for…ME!
We are off to see Garfield this morning. Cameron and Gracie are anxious to see it. The reviews have been the pits but what the heck–the weather stinks today. I hope everyone had a terrific weekend. Thank you for all of your kind comments regarding Owen. He has made a lot of good progress. It’s hard not to always want more…and more…And I signed Cameron up for FastForword. I am keeping my fingers crossed that he has some tremendous success there.
