And Now a Word About Cables

I'm not sure what that "word" is except maybe...ooh. And I don't mean that in a good way. I mean it like "wow, learn to read cable instructions before embarking on anything containing them!"

Sadly, my husband said the hat looked like brains.

So a C6F, C6B means something different than what I have here.  I actually don't think its completely horrid but I did get some really unpleasant looks from my family. Maybe it is horrid.  The picture looks better than the hat in reality.

I'm still learning, that is the bright side.  I feel really good about making a project with cables even if it does look like brains.

Baby Cardigan-again-again

I've finished the baby cardigan.  It is so sweet and soft and cuddly...mmmmm. I wish I had one for myself.  A great big, soft cardi to snuggle up in.  Babies are so lucky.  I know the baby I made this one for will be blessed as I know he will be loved! Matching hat too!

Now the buttons, well, I just couldn't find a button I liked that was the right color.  And strange as it seems, I really don't care for specialty buttons like little duckies but these matched so darn well. 

Happy Mother's Day to all.  It is truly a privledge to be someone's mom and to be loved by one!

Off the Farm

So wow, it has been a significant time since I wrote in my blog.  I'm sure I've lost all two of the readers I had. I have been knitting and reading.  Usually if I'm off the farm for a period its because some book(s) has called me away.  But I seem to have been reading and reading and reading lately.  I've read all three of The Hunger Games books, the first three books of A Song of Ice and Fire (Games of Thrones series) and am about 1/3 of the way through the Fall of Giants. I am not sure when my reading appetite returned but I just can't put the books down!

I have done some knitting, I have the dress for a girl turning one started and a baby hat with matching sweater and the front panel of a sweater.  I just need to get back in the swing of things.  I've lost direction.  I understand that there's is yet another baby to knit for so maybe I can get back on track!
