The one button cardigan is just the way I wanted it. Just look at her - I cannot believe that I did not want any pink gifts when I was expecting. Of course my friends gave me only pink clothes for my daughter, and ever since she has not wanted to wear anything but pink. This simple pattern leaves a blank canvas for embellishments... I am anxious to finish it, but also slightly distracted.
See, I want to finish this blanket. We are all crocheting squares, and I hope to finish it before the grandmothers leave in about 3 weeks. I should add, my mother-in-law will join us in crocheting as soon as she finishes the mittens she is knitting. She says she cannot crochet, but I do not believe her :)
She whipped up this mitten in one afternoon.
My mother discovered cowls. She finished this one in the time my mother-in-law finished the mitten, and is now moving on to her next one, in signal red. (She is cleaning up the leftover yarn from the stripey sweater.)
And on top of that, I know of four little babies that will join us soon, and they all need something hand knit.
This picture appears as if it was photoshopped and something went wrong - I promise, I did nothing. Neither the yarn nor the grass is that bright, it just appears to be. I will probably be able to show you the finished product next week, since babies are so ridiculously small. By then I'll have done something to tone it down, I promise, don't worry. I know all about overstimulated babies, I've been an Occupational Therapist ages ago, I'll handle this. (If you suspect you are the recipient of this, and you hate it, just e-mail me. Keep in mind that I will simply say: "No, of course this is not for you. I knew you would hate this.")
Reading? Not this week. Just knitting and drinking way to much coffee and catching up on three years' worth of visiting. And of course, joining Ginny's yarn along.
