Day 9: Not Fit For Company

Today’s day 9, and I’m tired, cranky, and NOBODY wants to hear what I have to say right now. So I will spare you all, and I am taking myself off to bed with Innocent In Death, my Kindle, and the cat. I will be back tomorrow hopefully more myself.

In the meantime…have y’all seen the Sesame Street Google Doodles this week? Very cute. While I’m a big fan of Oscar, The Count’s Doodle was the most creative.

Day 8: A Wedding

One of my pals, Emma, is getting married in two weeks! It’s sudden, in that she didn’t expect to be getting married quite this quickly, but it’s a long time coming, in that she and her Soon-to-be-DH Tony have been together for quite a while.

They’re getting married in Vegas, and I’ll be going. I’m kind of excited. LOL I haven’t been to Vegas since I was about 13, and I hear it’s changed a little bit since then. LOL.¬†Two of my friends might be going with me, and it’ll be a fun, quick girl’s weekend if they can both make it. I hope they can.

Any suggestions for things to do/see in Vegas if you’re only going to be there for 2 days?

Day 7: …Vs. Girl

So yesterday was the “boy” version of the Easy-Peasy Baby Sweater, as I call it. No, I can’t tell you where to get it, because all The Fabulous Anita had was a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy of a… and the name/source of the pattern has been lost. Buttons once again purchased at JoAnn’s. There’s also a lavender version of this button I couldn’t resist.

Now, the only changes I made were to knit it in Stockinette with a 3-stitch Garter edging all around, and to crochet a row of Berocco Plush around the edge. That’s it. Other than that, it’s the exact same pattern, made the same size, with the same yarn (Cascade 220 Superwash). Because the pattern is asymmetrical, and it’s knit as one piece, I knit it so the buttons were the correct way for girls vs. boys.

Here’s the Girly Version (Ravel It!)

Cute, huh? The mom loves it, and has told me she can’t wait for this little girl to try it on. She says she keeps holding the sweater up to Baby to see if Baby’s big enough yet. LOL. When I have pictures of the baby IN the sweater, I’ll share them.
