Still here...

I am still around. I am still knitting. Just also very busy taking care of the three kids.... finding time to hop on the computer is challenging.  I am also in a bit of a rut knitting wise.  I started a rainbow sweater for Sawyer, and despite the tell-tell signs that it would be too small, I kept going.  It was a very fun knit, and in the end it was too small..... BUT it became a rainbow sweater dress for Lucy! So, win?


She loves it, and I love it on her, but I was apparently pretty bothered by my gage issues.  I have since started another sweater for Sawyer (Crazyheart from the Heart on My Sleeve collection, I would link but I have to leave in three mins for school pickup!!) and I am again worried it is too small.  My gage is spot on (even after blocking) so I am hoping it is just because it is jammed on the needle.  I am knitting him the 8-10 year size, which should be plenty roomy for my skinny kiddo. Hopefully. I am half way through the first sleeve. I also need to get some baby things on the needles.  So many new babies are expected this fall!! Exciting! And Dorothy needs a new hat (well, maybe, really all I need to do is go through our hats and find one that fits her, but I like making new things for each kid as well as having them wear things they have all worn).... ANYWAY. Off to pick up Lucy from preschool. I hope to get back into the groove of blogging more...and knitting more...maybe life will settle down next month. HA!
