So, I’m still working on Fidget’s sweater. I have only worked on it a bit here and there after posting last Wednesday. I did manage to sew the one neck seam and pick up the stitches around the neckband and knit that for an inch or so, but other than that it’s just sat in the work bag. I was hoping to get to it today (maybe during Fidget’s nap while watching Breaking Dawn part 1 that Darling Hubby bought me yesterday) but it’s looking like it might be tomorrow or this weekend. lol I’m hoping for a snow day tomorrow for Bug since we are supposed to get our first big snow of the season…I can’t believe that tomorrow will be the 1st of March and we are just now getting some snow that will last more than a few hours! At least if March comes in like a LION it will go out like a LAMB, right?
On the other hand, I did pick up my hooded cardigan a couple times over the week. I finished sewing the button holes Monday night and last night at Craft Night I sewed on the buttons. It’s a bit bigger than the last hooded cardigan I made using the same pattern. Mostly because I used heavier yarn and I didn’t do a proper “washed and hung” gauge swatch. I just went with the needles called for on the pattern and my quickly knitted up, measured, and then frogged swatch. It’s fine as I prefer my sweaters to be a little baggy. It’s not like the sleeves are too long or anything! lol
Hopefully by next week I’ll have another WIP to write about. One of my fellow January Jubilee mommies approached me asking if I’d make a blanket for her 7 year old daughter. I’m looking forward to the task. I have to take some measurements of Bug’s twin bed and calculate dimensions and figure out how much yarn I’ll need. I also have to find a pattern. I’m thinking flowery hexagon granny squares in purples, pinks and white with some light green. I’m excited to start it!
