DB Baby Cashmerino in black
US 2 Inox Circulars-magic looped..heh, what else lately!
Started Dec. 6-Finished Dec. 11-road trip knitting
For Darling Daughter, who loves almost anything in black!
See them flat!
Not too bad for taking the picture yourself huh!! It was so liberating to drop those stitches..hehe..nope you can see I have not knit a Clapotis yet.
I had only one skein of the yarn that I got in a recent swap, I could have made them a bit longer, but you know they sure aren't for warmth, but for look.
Her penquin is going well..hoping to lock myself in my bedroom today to finish, then I must oil my serger and get crackin' on 3 cuddlewraps and her penguin fleece blankey!! I think I am going to try some fingering weight yarn to use on it. You see I use serger yarn (hehe way before I even started to knit) and it is pretty expensive when you use 2-3 cones (tiny ones) per project...I thought..hmm for those yarns you have that you may not like to knit with, you can serge with (upper/lower loopers only)
Oh, another reason for the title besides DD's pressie....my DS snagged his SAT results!! Yes, he is now qualified for the next step in getting a NROTC scholarship. (which if he chooses either school we visited this month..um..he's gonna need it!!)
So now the waiting continues to see if he is offered it. He also heard from VMI, and he's accepted there. He now has 4 colleges to choose from, 1 instate (and still waiting to hear from another one), and 3 out of state. He knows the weight of his decision and what accepting a scholarship like that entails, so even though we know what we want him to do..well he's 18 now (sniff) and the decision is his......
Well I'm off to take care of him, 4 wisdom teeth out before the holidays...eeek! Grocery shopping, then back to sew/knit/cook/clean for the rest of the weekend. Oh and have I got a Happy Bird ending for you, but that'll have to wait....
