First I want to thank you all for the nice comments about Trellis. It was a totally fun sweater to knit, and I highly recommend the pattern to someone with at least a moderate amount of knitting experience. I think I'm going with plain ol' wooden buttons so they won't compete with the knitting itself. I tried the sweater on the child yesterday and it is too big, which is great - I was aiming for her to wear it this spring, summer and hopefully a little bit of autumn.
Second, a couple of you said you had some stuff in common with me from my 100 things. Peeps, ya' can't leave me hangin' like that! What do we have in common? Did your husbands propose to you in the supermarket too? My inquiring mind wants to know!
All right, on to the Olympic challenge. Real quick, head over to see Scout's supplies for Odessa. That hat's gonna rock the party, and I totally want it. What do I have to do to get you to send it to me, Scout?
I spent my aimless night pulling patterns and supplies together for my personal Dulaan challenge. A quick trip to the library for Ann Budd's book and I'll be set. I can't believe I don't have a pattern for a child size mitten knit in the round. I can't believe I'm so lazy I won't sit down and figure it out for myself. Oh well, Ann Budd already did the work for me I guess.
supplies, ready to go
And for those of you who come here for the kid stuff: Daughter still refuses to do anything that resembles crawling. But! She will now fixate on an object, get it in her sights, and roll over 'n over 'n over 'n over till she reaches it. Which is cool, but also dangerous. We have two wide, flat steps in the family room (leading up), which she will roll to and use to try to pull herself up. I'm happy to see her try, but now begins the 'watch like a hawk' stage of parenting that will last till she's oh, about married.
apparantly rolling to the tv stand and rubbing your feet on it feels good
