Finished Projects, Oh My!So I just realized I have 2 more finished projects that I haven't photographed yet. But since Monster had a meltdown last night until almost midnight (teething? random baby-angst?), I'll just go with what I've got.
And what I have is a finished Wild Apple! I love this sweater with a passion. Love it love it love it! I'm actually restraining myself from ordering another kit from Solveig.
I also finished Baby A's "Swing Thing" in a record time. I paired some silk yarn from stash with some pre-shrunk 100% cotton. I also used snaps covered by buttons instead of actual buttons, as getting things buttoned is a huge challenge with a wiggly Monster.
My only complaint is that the &#*@$ing silk yarn bled like crazy in a cold water wash, and slightly stained some of the cream cotton. I'm really glad I didn't use the silk yarn for anything else - it's not a big deal on a baby sweater, but could be a real problem in other garments. I guess if I use it again, I'll pair it with a really dark color of yarn.
Abby is still putting up with the whole "baby" thing, and has decided that all of the dropped finger food is a fair trade for the occasional abuse from Monster. She is NOT, however, quite as happy about the new exercise ball routine that S learned from the vet. Supposedly, it is like doggy pilates, and will help her compensate for the missing leg. Abby wonders how many extra chicken strips she's earning by putting up with S' craziness.
Right - off to start dinner and the bedtime routine. Here's what I hope to see in a few short hours...
