completed and finished
I need some positive feedback, please. Every time I show my husband these adorable pants, he tells me that he really cannot stand that color. Or something clever like - "that is a great color for baby pants - you will never notice that the diaper leaked." I happen to love the color, but I know that my taste in color is somewhat, well, different. It is crème brulee, and yes, I bought it on purpose.
He does not want to get excited at all - not even when I show him the brilliant finishing, the nifty turning row and the perfect casing for the i-cord that I knit without breaking a sweat.
But I know y'all will be impressed. (See, I'm turning into a Texan).
I found the pattern in One More Skein. I am very glad that all knitting books are not available on the Kindle, I would have bought far too many...
I finished another children's book: Because of Winn-Dixie. I actually read it while knitting and watching Celebrity Apprentice with one eye (I consider some reality TV as an important part of my American Assimilation).
My favorite part is the part about the Littmus Lozenges:
"How do you get that taste in there?"
"That's the secret," she said. "That's why Littmus made a fortune. He manufactured a piece of candy that tasted sweet and sad at the same time."
I have been a bit melancholic the last couple of posts. But life is really sweet.
