That song is somewhat going through my head right now...
Anyway, the back of the wrap cardi continues to grow, we're 2 centimeters shy of binding off for the neckline. :) Oh yeah. Andy cheered, and then I said "Yeah, then it's only two fronts, two sleeves, and two ties". And then we both sat for a second pondering how much work that sounded like. Ah well. I know it'll be quicker than the back.
I'm a bit worried about it though...this is the first sweater I've made that will require seaming. My past attempts at clothing were all tanks, or were Tempting. There was one pair of shorts, but they were all one piece, just needed to be sewn together. Not like THIS will be. Makes me doubt my skills, but heck...it almost always turns out better than I expect, and if I don't try, then I won't become a better knitter.
So, when I'm using the computer to read blogs and such, I'm knitting lately...on PANTA. I figure that since I'm unsure how much my best friend will like the scarf I knit her for her birthday (more on that in a few minutes), I'd try making another accessory.
Can you see what I love so much about this project so far?
It's the pink vintage needles. A PINK PROJECT ON PINK NEEDLES. *dies*
For some reason, that makes me happier than I can describe. Here's something else that made me full of glee today:
These REALLY cute St Patrick's Day pj pants from Old Navy. I put them on as soon as I got home from my shopping trip with Steph, and dinner with her and Mollie. The bees just make the pants.
Lastly, the scarf I made for Dee.
(Ignore me and how puffy I am. I've been retaining water, strangely enough. I noticed this morning when I noted when I put on my socks, my ankles are swollen). Dee's jacket is the black version of this (and nope, we didn't shop for them together. We found out at a dinner party when we got there. How weird is that?), and I was attempting to match the wee little deer in the corner. Made with KnitPicks Sierra, which is only slightly scratchy, in 1x1 rib, and yes I AM crazy. I hated it. I did it because I wanted something that looked like stockinette, but wouldn't curl, but all I succeeded at was the not curling. It looks weird to me, and uneven, and I don't think it looks like I wanted, but it's not bad either...I DO like it. It probably looks short to you all, but I was going for that...I wanted a scarf that would just be tucked into a jacket in the front.
And that's all the news that's fit to print. Hopefully next update will be a finished back to the wrap cardi, or a finished Panta.
