One of the reps at the shop came in wearing this beauty and it had to be mine! Completely appropriate–it was the day after I discovered my BIG mistake on St. Brigid. Cabling without a needle didn’t work so well for me on that sleeve so I thought a sterling silver cable needle hanging around my neck might help. It’s lovely. And heavy. I was an indentured servant for several days but I was finally payed up at 11am on Saturday. If anyone is interested in the necklace, let me know–I can send more pictures too. They sell for $160 plus shipping.
Life has been a bit nutty with Owen home. He has been very clingy and 12 hours of him hanging on me, requesting "tickle bombs" is draining. He is actually at his teacher’s house now for a couple of hours, hanging out with her kids and going in the pool. It’s a nice little break. I feel absolutely awful about it as he has such a short vacation but when he isn’t requesting tickle bombs–he wants to go get a "donut". We have to do something about that. He only likes pink frosted sprinkle Dunkin Donuts. I think he would alternate between everything bagel with butter and donuts if he could.
Knitting…not so much. I finished the Neapolitan sock but it is hanging at Granny’s. The worsted weight socks for my brother are a bit stalled. I couldn’t get the toe decreases right. I asked my mom to finish it for me–she is my brother’s mother–GASP! She insists I conquer my dpn fears. Honestly, I learned on dpns–I made Sunny’s Mittens with some handspun as my first real knitting project. I just suck at them.
Oh yea…Owen’s meeting went well. The coordinator doesn’t plan on doing 10 block trials of verbal imitation. Hurray!!
