Victory dances all around! The Four Season Afghan is finished! I sewed the last end in over the weekend and had a very unsuccessful photo shoot with Kevin. Final details: Berroco Peruvia 14 skeins altogether (3 of 2 colors and 4 of the other 2) and a US 9. Admittedly, I was finished with this project at the specified 3 strips but the overall opinion was it was too small for two men. I added another 2 strips and it is perfect. I continuously screwed up on the last strip as I was DONE but I kept plugging along and it was a happy day when I cast off. Cameron loves it and asked for one of his own. Sigh. I can’t do it.
Teacher knitting was finished today too for Cameron. A couple of super chunky hats, a pair of Fetching, a Scaruffle and a funky Tahki scarf. Oh–a Pidge knockoff too. I completely forgot about the speech teacher. And see, I forgot her again. I just need to sew on the buttons and run the ends.
Owen’s teachers aren’t getting handknits this year. I just couldn’t do it and finish the afghan too. And we just had the most wonderful news for Owen! The district bought him a brand new augmentative communication device. I am not exactly sure what model…I pick it up on Thursday. In my excitement, I didn’t really pay attention to what I was told by his coordinator. I was just thinking of all the amazing things I hope to hear Owen say!
