moving forwards...and yet backwards
I decided that C needed a sheep yoke neck cardigan to wear for her 1st birthday (along with a matching knitted dress and sheep booties). To me this is slightly insane b/c I have never done stranded work or followed a chart. I started a couple days ago and after a lot of help from the wonderful ladies at ravelry I am well on my way. I am really excited to be conquering a new knitting skill and can't wait to make my own charts to add designs into everything. So here I am expanding my skills and moving forward but yet today I realized I need to go backwards a bit. I goofed up the flower pattern in the cardigan by not reading the fine print on the next page after the chart so I have to rip out what I have done up to the top of the flowers and start over. That slightly stresses me out but at the same time it's not that bad because I understand what I am doing now so it will be a fast re-do. Woo hoo!! Sorry,that was all kind of boring huh?
I knitted up some baby legwarmers for C a few days ago and they came out cute. I wanted to make them a bit taller but that was all the yarn I had in that colorway but they are perfect for her. They are long enough for her now and will work great for the next baby. The woman that designed the pattern asked my permission to use this pic on her pattern page <3
K fell asleep on the couch with her Fiona bear the other night.
