I finished the back of The Sweater last night. And now I need to rip out about 6 inches. I don’t know what I was thinking. In the Eddie Bauer version, the solid areas are not equidistant between the colorwork areas, but I made them a little too not equal so that I don’t have enough solid right at the neck.
I held it up to David’s back though. The length is good. Looks like it will fit around him. But ugh – gotta rip. Now when I look at it, I am kind of embarrassed. What was I thinking?
Those big old size 11 needles and the bulky yarn are kind of hurting my hands, so I am taking a small break and going back to my socks for a couple of days. I want to get the Joy of Sox going again!
Here’s a photo of my little computer boy. I had no idea that trying to get him not to spend too much time on the computer was going to begin at the tender age of 3! He plays Little Einsteins games. He negotiates from game to game. When I offer to help, I hear the standard: “Mommy. I can do it all by myself!”
He also helped me make cookies today. He likes to scoop them out and put them on the cookie sheet. It’s not yet a pretty process, but it’s good practice for him. Coordination building and all that. Again, I heard “Mommy, please stand back. I am doing this all by myself.”
It is getting late in the day. It’s about time to get Davey to bed. We are reading Mo Willems Pigeon books. They are very funny, and I highly recommend them — to anyone!
