So far the only thing I've knit for my baby grandson, Colin... due in May. Look! They match! I don't normally display my fo's on a garbage bag but I had it on the table to lay wet towels on to block the front of Kepler. Yesterday, when I pinned the front and the back of Kepler together, and tried it on, much to my surprise I found that it fits me like a glove. I can't believe it. Now, if I can just get the sewing right, it will be a very successful FO. The last piece (sleeve) is currently blocking. In finishing it, you sew all the pieces together and then add an I-cord neck edge. I'm almost there. Could it possibly be that I WILL be able to wear it to the baby shower on Saturday? Stay tuned!
Thanks for all the nice comments on the yarn that I spun. Actually, I tried to knit a ear warmer thingy with it and it didn't work out at all. Shelly spun the first so many yards of it showing me how to do it, then, when I started spinning it, I was making it much thicker than her's so, as I was knitting with it, the width of the band kept growing and I had to rip it out. (that was a run-on sentence if there ever was one) Anyhow, the yarn is pretty, but I don't know what I'll be able to do with it.
I finished the baby hat for charity knitting this morning. I guess I will continue to take photos with my film camera and have them put on CD's so I can post them here until I figure out what to do with my digital camera. I still haven't checked with Circuit City to see if I have any recourse for a refund for that thing. I need to go back in my archives on here to see when I purchased it. I know it hasn't been a year. It's very frustrating. I'm not a happy camper about that camera.
Today is my mother's 79th birthday. As we were all sitting at dinner last night, I was thinking what a miracle it is that she is still here. You just can't believe what she's been through... so many health issues that she should not have survived. She's a fiesty one. Tomorrow she is having two additional surgical procedures that I'm a little nervous about. I'm sure she'll be fine but given her history, it's always a worry.
