Jessamy is in england

Just got a call from Jessamy, she's in Newcastle, alive and well, and it's raining.

It was my mom's B-day yesterday, and I did manage to get her table cloth done, although the edges were a bit damp (she didn't seem to mind) from the starch I put on at the last minute. I tried taking a picture, but the cameras in our house at chronically out of batteries. Basically, it looked a lot like the unfinished pictures, but with a strip of white double crochet and a shell border of the same pink/purple border.

I'm to the armhole decrease on my sweater. yay. It's going to look absolutely nothing like the sweater I had intended to do.

Baby sweater is finished

The baby sweater I was making for a baby shower and didn't finish in time is now done. Baby sweaters do take no time at all to make, only things is, you have to actually knit during that time, and not continually rip things out for your project to ever be complete. The sweater is an updated version of EZ's baby surprise jacket, this one is in one of last year's Vogue knitting, except for a few changes of course.

New Sock Book in

We now have Cat Bordhi's New Pathways sock book. It's the first in a series of three awesome and unusual socks. This book is cool, really, some of the socks have the heel flap on the bottom of the sock!

In other news I did not make the August 4, at 4pm deadline for the baby sweater. All I had left was sewing and seaving and making the tie, but I can't work under pressure. Jessamy was able to complete her gift though (show off), it was a cute dress made out of the rowan denim.
