Sophie Could Become Habit Forming

Image hosted by

I can see many more of these in my future. What a fun knit! I've never felted anything before and I'm really excited to see how this turns out. I was going to make it solid and then I spied the leftover aran yarn from my mother's afghan and decided to make the stripe and one strap rope from it.. knowing for sure that it will felt.

The St. Patrick's Day parade in Pittsburgh is this Saturday. All the Irish gear I knitted to wear to the event may be for naught. It's supposed to be 30 degrees and snow. I don't think I can stand outside for three hours watching a parade in that, so I'm majorly disappointed. Last year was sunny and 50's. We may still go...I don't know. I HAVE to have that Primanti Bros. sandwich. I think I was looking forward to that more than the parade!

Oh, I had Primanti's the other day - YUM!!! I'm so surprised I haven't gained more weight since moving to Pittsburgh. :) Sophie is great. I can't even begin to count how many I've made. I've never done one with stripes though, so I'm excited to see how yours turns out!
