My mother is proud of me November 6, 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — katy @ 2:21 pm

Making_my_mother_proud 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 I_can_do_it 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.  NoteBirds_nest_shawl  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!

    Swell, is well swell =)
    OMG – 4 hours…what a pain, but it looks so pretty.
    Way to go Cam! That’s like 2 points over the the highest mark.

    Avery wants me to make him Swell (he ran into the pattern when I had it on the coffee table). He’s picked out the yarn and everything! Yours is coming along very nicely.
    Your mom should be proud;)

    Good luck with the Parent Teacher conference. I have both of mine next week. I may send Rinaldo by himself to Ian’s. I think he’s doing really well and I don’t know how well I’ll take it if they burst my bubble…

    FOUR HOURS? Kathleen, I admire your persistence and patience!!

    You are a knitting goddess 🙂 Hope the conference goes well!!! Just to make you laugh today – We were running late and I did not notice until he was far away from the car heading into school that Patrick’s shirt was on inside out!!! I have decided boys are much harder to raise than girls LOL

  14. Rossana Says:

    Yay, Cameron! Good job on the crayfish test! Keep up the good work on your reading!

    And that’s wonderful that you and your mom are tackling Swell. I look forward to seeing the progress.
