The best Christmas gift, Knitting stuff!

Originally uploaded by tangledskeins
Here is a pic of the sweater I have been working on. The pattern, yarn, needles, and the bag it is sitting on were all part of the perfect Christmas gift from my aunt Marilyn. I started working on this on New Year's Eve, while I sat in our hospital lab for the 3 (really more than 4) hour glucose tolerance test. The pattern is the Sweetheart Cardigan pattern from page 43 of the book 'Lacy Little Knits' by Iris Schreier. The yarns (totally yummy) are Rowan Kidsilk Haze...super kid mohair/silk (soooo fine, and incredibly soft!) in colorway shade #582, and Fiddlesticks Knitting JaggerSpun Zephyr Wool-Silk...merino wool/tussah silk in colorway Juniper. The pattern is so light and airy, the yarns sooo luxurious, and the color just perfect for me. :) It is going to make the perfect summer cardi!

Been away for a while, back in the New Year...

I have been away from the blog for a while due to computer difficulties, but I'm (trying) to get back in the swing of things. Since my last post, I have finished the Sheepy Sack I was working on, made a couple more Aubrey Doodlepants, including one with a goldfish applique and duplicate stitch work (which still needs a little finshing),


a BUNCH of Mini Weasly Sweater Christmas Ornaments from the Charmed Knits book for use as gift tags for my husbands family, and a pair of baby sized Chuck Taylor Converse for the baby from a pattern I found on Ravelry.


Also, while I have been gone, my girls, Madison, Page, and Natalie, as well as my neice Sarah, and my nephew Seth have all had birthdays (December is VERY busy around here!!) Mady turned 5, Page turned 12, Natalie turned 9, Sarah hit the big 1-0, and little Seth celebrated his very first birthday! My pregnancy has continued to progress, though it is taking a bigger toll on my physically, and energy-wise than my previous ones. I'm definitely feeling the fact that I am no longer 19 years old! We go in this Friday for our long anatomy ultrasound, and even though I have had brief glimpses of our little guy, and even a very quick #D glimpse at my last doctors visit, I am really looking forward to a nice long detailed look! We have 72 days as of today until he is due to make his appearance, and it seems like no time at all, and an eternity, all rolled into one. Pin It
