Your music was lovely and sad and I have a tear in my eye for you.

crossover sweaterOK, here are photos finally. The sweater as appears in the Phildar Layette book, and, the version I did with bulkier yarn and embroidery embellishment. I thought it looked kind of plain and now I’m wondering if I want to add another little flower to each sleeve near the cuff. I’ll give it to them soon enough. Meanwhile, I need to continue on with Latifa, as it’s getting to that scarf season and I want to wear it! Also need to think of what to knit for the newest grand niece.

Blue Monday

I never did get to finish that sweater last week. I meant to give it on Friday night but I just didn’t get the snaps sewn on and ends woven in in time. I know, small details, but freelance work kept me busy. So now I have a few more weeks to give it and since I have more time, might do a little more embroidery and maybe make a pair of booties to match. Pics coming soon, I swear.

It’s a glum day around here though I had a really great weekend. But there’s been a rash of suicides at nearby NYU and the latest one happened to be the daughter of a coworker. I never met the girl but still, not the kind of news you want to come into work to.

On a lighter note, saw School of Rock this weekend and if you haven’t yet, GO. It’s so good, so mood enhancing, I want to see it again and again.

Again, apologies for the silence. Just been a busy little bee! Anyway, almost done with the Phildar baby sweater for this week. I promise I’ll have photos tomorrow! I have one sleeve left to do, and it’s already half sewed, and I decided since it was just a plain stockingnette stitch that I would do some embroidery to liven it up. You’ll see!

I’m in kind of a funk today because this morning my bird, Kelly, injured his wing somehow and was bleeding when I woke up. I tended to it with tissues and Neosporin and Liquid Bandage, and against better judgement came into work anyway. He seemed OK when I left, he was eating, but I’m worried he’ll pick at it today and bleed a lot again. I’m worried sick but trying to get through the day and hope he’s fine when I get home. It didn’t seem life threatening or I would have ran to a vet.

Anyway, back to knitting. Oh, my nephew just had his second baby this weekend. A girl. I now have *3* grandnieces. Looks like more knitting for me…
