I hope you enjoyed my article, and don't hate me too much for liking to swatch.
If you're trying to figure out what the heck's going on around here, here's the cheat sheet:
The state fair turn-in day is October 4, and I'm trying to finish a copy of the Blue Shimmer and a doily (knit on 0000 needles with size 70 tatting cotton) by then. It's about all I do.
I've got a year-old baby I spend a lot of time feeding, diapering, chasing, and playing with. Ditto for my six year old cat. (I also break up a lot of baby-cat situations where the baby wants to hug the cat to death.)
For those who've been following along with the drama, I've now got the knitting needles to do the sleeves on the Blue Shimmer (they came in the mail today), but now I can't find the size zero/2mm needle I need to knit the hem of the body. I don't think I've ever in my life knit a project this disorganized. Of course it's on a deadline.
I may have to go to the local yarn shop. It's run by a troll. Urg.
