Goodness, this next month is going require a lot of patience, kindness & breathing. Oh and lots of wine. I took the boys home last weekend to visit with Mom and Dad. Mom warned me that she just wasn't quite herself, and that she was having a hard time with the jet-lag. Her version of "hard time" is different from my version. The list in the picture is from a manic period I spent with Mom trying to list everything that needs to be done for the wedding. But I think that things are under control and our family is in the final stretch of this wedding. I'm trying to imagine the posts that will come from this blessed event. The blog may finally be revealed when Ava and I are caught giggling around the computer.
I have some required knitting that needs to be finished within the next couple of months. Amanda is on hold because I'm waiting for my 40 inch cable to return from Ava's house. Mindless knit: Marsan Watchcap in Moda Washable Wool. I really do enjoy this yarn and if you use a coupon, it'd be a great deal for almost 200 yards of superwash. Has anyone used this yarn and how does it wash up? Our friend leaves the first week of August and I'd like to have it done prior to him leaving. 1x1 twisted rib is slow going, but it's easy to do while watching 2 kids. Regular ole knit: Tuck's Trellis in Lion Brand Wool Ease. This is a sentimental knit. I made Gus one in Wool Ease and I loved how he looked in it. Like a young Mr. Rogers. I'll try to dig up some pictures. I doubt that I did a swatch for Gus'. Why not? I was a young knitter and it's a kid knit. I really don't think that I did because I would have remembered the frustration! I began this with another yarn and it would have fit Tuck in 4 years. I tried it again with the Wool Ease and it would have fit Tuck in 2 years. So I made a crazy decision to knit the smallest size on needles 2 sizes smaller than recommended. If I could just remember the proper cabling without a needle technique, I'd be cruising.
Ava, we're real behind on ABC along. I think that we need to play catch-up. God we're lazy.
