Congratulations to Tim for winning the movie line contest from Housesitter (with some clues from Tam and her top secret source).

The next movie line is a complete giveaway, but I'm in a generous mood, so here goes:

"Swing away".

Good luck to all.

I haven't posted for a few days because Sproutie has been sick. It's hard when babies are sick, because they can't tell you how they feel, all they want is for you to hold them, and you feel so sad for them. But he's almost fully back to his curious little self again, which makes me very happy.

I haven't gotten to do a lot of knitting due to a clingy sick baby, but I've tried to make as much progress as I can on the Girlfriend's swing coat. I'm liking the ease of the pattern. I'm almost ready to bind off the bottom edge, and I've been working on knitting the sleeves in the round. Tomorrow night is my knitting group, where maybe I'll get a chance to work on the attached I-cord around the border. Here is an update on my progress:
You're looking at the back of the sweater. Still to be knitted up and added is a very sweet sweeping collar. And I'm trying to decide whether to end the sleeves plainly, or add a decorative garter stitch or seed stitch cuff. Any thoughts about that, anyone?

My love to all.

WOW. I'm totally impressed. You are making CLOTHES!!! :)
I love it.

(and your little snow flakes and patches were so cute)(not to mention, of course, that little baby bundle)

OK - It's not Signs, is it?

Still Painting !!
Love, me

Tim said...

Sandy, I'm such a dork. I accidentally deleted your comments. Maybe it was the baby crying in my ears. Please post again, sugar. *love*

OK, well, I think I was commenting you on what a good job ur doing on that sweater. I think you should do the fancy sleeves, because you're so good at knitting, It would just be a shame not to. I knew it was signs, too, but I came in 3rd place.
I'm so happy to hear that Sprout is feeling better. I want him to be 100% at Scooterbutt's party so I can try to get him to laugh again.
