here's a random smattering of lovely things from my weekend:
a sunday morning three-way video skype sandwich meetup! turns out there's no better way to start your day.
i reached a point where lily could actually try on her birthday sweater and (big sigh of relief) it will fit! there was considerable worry as i just cast on for this project without checking my gauge... and when i did check (maybe 8-10" into the body) my gauge was off. eep! luckily i had cast on for one size too big, so it all worked out in the end! (but i think it helps that my daughter is skinny as a bean pole.)
i noticed the other day that (gasp of horror) a lot of my dishcloths have holes in them and are falling apart. we certainly can't have that! so i immediately reinstated the "knit dishcloths while you wait for lily" policy and now have this lovely playful plaid (rav link) cloth to show for it.
my niece received her owl hat! all signs point to: "she likes it!"
