Quiet Saturday

I have been on a roll crocheting these little baby rompers in boy colors. I haven't done any knitting in a few days. Tonight I have to teach myself how to do a provisional cast on. That should be fun.

I brought a bunch of blankets and hats to Southside yesterday for the babies. There was this one baby who was soooo beautiful I just wanted to snatch her/him up and take them with me. I love going to drop off the donations, it makes me want to come home and start on the next batch as soon as possible. That is what I'll be doing as soon as I am done here.

Corset Tee Finished!


I did it!! I finished my first sweater. I put the buttons on last nite and they are a little to small for the buttonholes. I am going to sew up the front and make it a pullover. Its a little tight in the chest so it pulls and I'm afraid the buttons will pop open. I used Wool
ease in Blush Heather.


I have everything packed up and ready to go to the hospital tomorrow. Blankets and hats and some sweater sets. I love going there, the nurses are always so happy to see me and what I've brought. Time to start working on the next batch. I go every 2 months so I'll be going again the end of May. Have a great nite!

Finishing up

This week seems to be about finishing up. I have to get my baby stuff washed, bagged and tagged. Friday is delivery day. Then I have to finish up a sweater for me. I joined a KAL and it starts on Monday so I want to get this one finished up before I start that. And I have a fingerless glove that needs a mate. So I'll spend the rest of the week on clearing all my WIP's. Then I can start fresh on April 1st. That seems appropriate, I consider April 1st the first day of spring. Also have to get my easter decos up. I guess I should get to work....
