When life gives you Lemons....well, make a vest!
Hopefully that will be the answer! A couple of days ago, BG tried the front/back on of his sweater. Big smile...lots of enthusiasm, Grandma is wonderful (and happy!). Yesterday, I had basted a sleeve on, and needed to have him try it on for a sizing. He pitched a fit! Wanted no part of the sweater - AT ALL! "No Grandma! No Grandma!" is all he would say. Not happy boy (nor grandma!). So....I'll give it another try next week, but as one gal suggested in my knitting group this morning, perhaps I ruined it by adding sleeves. So...I'll keep you posted. Keep your fingers crossed for me. I knew it was a risk.....oh well - I am normally a process knitter anyway. And, there's always room in the charity box for another toddler sweater. Sigh.....
My mindless, knitting while waiting in the car, etc, project is done.
Ohhhh....that's a horrible photo! Sorry...not sure what happened there. Anyway - nothing too exciting. Standard guy's vanilla sock. Used a skein of Opal from my stash. They will be gifted come Christmas time. Last of my "must do" gifts.
Soooo..... I am in need of a new knitting project. Only bad part of being a one at a time kinda gal is when the one is stalled.
It rained all day yesterday. Luckily, it was warm enough that we had only rain. They say that it would have been a 14" snowfall had temps been lower. I'm ready for cooler weather, but not sure I want 14" of snow just yet -- thanks anyway!
An update on the eye: Some days are better than others. Today is not so good. :( Apparently it can take a long time (months and months) to get better, or as good as it's going to get anyway. So...I'm just trying to be patient and grateful that it is not worse than it is. So far the left eye remains ok. I am being told it will be better - eventually.
Off to start a new project. Also started some spinning last night, so my world continues to rotate, even if a little lop-sided at times! Take care.
