Stealing one from Carole

The Good

Owen_and_other_stuff_009_4 I absolutely love our new bedroom.  Thanks to my mom–we came up with an economic window covering solution.  A big rod over the window!  It was a rushed decision, at Bed, Bath and Beyond, made with three children.  But I like it.  My favorite blue linen duvet won’t match but I have seen some pretty ones in Garnet Hill that I am saving my pennies for.

The Bad

Owen_and_other_stuff_011 The Broadripple Sock is not going to fit Cameron’s teachers foot.  It doesn’t even fit my foot.  Will it fit Gracie’s foot?  Or is this a cat toy?  It’s knit on US 3’s.  One would think it would be pretty  big.  I think I am holding the yarn too tight and not allowing it to relax.  Sigh. 

The Ugly

Owen_and_other_stuff_008_1 I had an idea to knit washcloths from the Mason Dixon book as end of the year gifts for teachers.  And I absolutely love Plymouth Royal Bamboo.  However, my bobbles are wonky and my dpn skills crap.  With a nice bar of soap it was a good idea.  C’est la vie.

Lastly, thanks for all of the supportive and understanding and insightful comments regarding Owen and our upcoming school transition.  He was driving me nuts yesterday but then he found my mom’s tam and put it on…my heart melted and I cracked up.  As nutty as he makes me, there is something wonderfully beautiful about that boy.
