Ok, so I have been absent for too long, but it has gotten unbelievably busy around here. . . you would think I had a family of 12 or something. . . thankfully, I don’t since it is taking all I can do to keep up with my family of 3. I seem to be constantly distracted and having trouble keeping all the balls in the air. It doesn’t help that I am working the job of two people, with a corporate guy that has me bouncing around like a pin ball wizard. No wonder I can’t keep anything straight.
We moved into this house one year ago yesterday, and it may be a coincidence, but it snowed then and it snowed yesterday and this morning. You all know how much I like snow. . . I guess we are just that much further north that this is the way winter is here. Certainly nothing like Buffalo, NY, and I am thanking God that I am not there right now!
So, on to knitting. . . are you sitting down? I think maybe you should before you look at this:
So, it looks pretty good in low lighting at night, I took another photo this morning and had a small heart attack. It wasn’t noticed as I was knitting, and nothing can be done about it now, but, it is quite evident in bright light:
You see it don’t you? Yeah. Well. That’s what I get for not working with four balls at the same time, I guess. I should have alternated every couple of rows with another ball of yarn to keep the handyed differences between skeins to a minimum. But I was frustrated with having to knit another front. . . that left front is really bad, I guess I could try to over dye the whole sweater, but I have these fabulous buttons:
from Shelby at Heartstone Ceramics and they match perfectly. . .
So, in short, I will probably just chalk it up to idiocy on my part, and wear it anyway. I still need to do the collar and button bands. . . oh joy, but at least there will be no cables. I always have a major hard time at getting the button hole placement correct.
Now, I am off to finish a Christmas present for Mom, (can’t show ’cause she reads here sometimes) and to finish her socks that I started in July. Good God, how bad is that?
Take care, everyone, and I’ll talk at ya, later!
