in my attempts to use stash yarn. I started a little baby sweater using an old EZ/Meg pattern from Vogue and it just isn’t working with my 501 yarn. And from the looks of that shade card–my yellow is discontinued. What to do with just over 500 yards of DK.
My second attempt was to get back to pulsewarmers. First attempt, chart is lost. Oh mom…can I please have a copy of the ladies enjoying themselves pulsewarmers? And no needles available for the other pair. How many size 0’s should one have in their possession?
I have been working on a cute bag for the shop. I am using a purple and the yarn is just heaven to work with. I have knit with plenty of alpaca but this just feels so smooth going through my fingers. I have had one other experience like that…that buttery feeling…Handpainted Yarns.
We have been enjoying have Kevin at home. Lots of little projects are being done around the house. Unfortunately not as much fun as we hoped–Cameron is wheezing something fierce. Our doctor’s office is closed till tomorrow. He hasn’t wheezed like this since he was a baby in London and they called him a "Happy Wheezer". He’s an unhappy wheezer right now.
Moving Owen out on Friday went quite smoothly. I had told him he would be saying goodbye to his teachers and friends. He repeated me as we went through the names, "Bye Raine, bye Kim, bye Meg…" Well he took his goodbye to Meg quite seriously. When I arrived to pick him up I was told he and Meg had been affectionate all day long hugging and holding hands. Sure enough, I saw them sitting in a little corner cubby smooching and hugging. It was very sweet. I don’t think his teachers believed he was aware or could comprehend his last day but from the looks of he and Meg–I would most definitely disagree! I had worked that day and Kevin forgot all the bracelets I had knit and the cards I had written. Sigh.
Thank you all for your kind and supportive words regarding my last post. Change is hard. I haven’t responded to the majority of the emails because life is insane! But please know that I truly appreciate each and every one of them. The wisdom gained from knit blogging about all things other than knitting continues to astound me. Hugs.
