Look what I did! I am knitting Swell from the summer issue of Knitty. I can’t even begin to tell you how proud I am. And my mom is too. I am using Knitaly for the solid and Reynold’s Odyssey for the contrast. It is meant to be for Owen’s teacher although it seems a bit tight. The inside looks pretty good too.
I got started–finally–on the Birds Nest Shawl. It only took 4 hours to rewind the ball by hand. Note the sarcasm. I feel like it’s tight but it has a lot of give. My mom looked at it today and said it was fine so I will forge ahead.
Parent teacher conferences for Cameron tonight. Kevin is going. I will stay home with Owen and the other two. I did run into the reading teacher last week and she said he was coming along nicely. And he got 102 on that crayfish test!
