Sounds like my act is finally together doesn't it? Umm, wrong. Finished the front and started on the back and kept thinking the bottom looks different. Well, duh, I messed up the front. Fortunately, it is a pretty quick knit, so I plan on finishing the back and loosening the bind off to allow me to unravel and knit the sleeves from the messed up front and then come back and do the front AGAIN! Sheesh, perhaps the knitting gods are trying to tell me to quit messing around with baby stuff. Yarn being used is Kraemer Perfection in a lovely shade of spit up. (they will thank me later!)
I would share more about the Dahlia, but it needs some Miracle Gro as I am only on row 27 of 90. What fun, a few stitches in seed stitch, a whole bunch of stockinette, and a few more of seed stitch...over and over and over.
On a happier note, my weekend
This is what I got:
Pictures don't do it justice. Every year he works in a different medium with the silver. My first piece was a druzy agate, last year it was polished jasper, this year it is polished spiny oyster shell (plus an amethyst). For all his hard work on such beautiful pieces, and for not calling for Security when I told him about the stalking, I gave him a hug...doesn't hurt that he's a cutie pie either!
