I know it’s not Tuesday. But it was Tuesday, Aug 31st when I drafted the photos for this post, and I don’t have the energy or desire to go change the permalink.
It’s been a lot of same-old around here since my last post…at least until today. So now I’m grumpy. Why I’m choosing to post while grumpy is beyond me, but I found a few minutes of time so here you go.
I did some crochet this week. I’ve been working on one project as a birthday gift for a friend, then decided to squeeze another project in a few days ago. That one proved to me that, just like knitting, crochet doesn’t work well while on painkillers. I took photos before fixing my mistake, but they’re still on my camera.
Here are the boys last month sometime. Henri loves wearing stuff on his head…hats, glasses, etc. That’s a pair of sunglasses he’s got on there. Jakob is always pulling Henri’s chair over to feed him or swipe food off his tray.
This was one of the progress photos of the Enchanted Forest Cardigan. It’s hard to see, but it’s the complete back (on the right) with the left front attached by 3ndl BO on the shoulder. That’s not in the pattern, but I prefer it to seaming the shoulders, so I’d short-rowed the decreases to prepare for it.
A shot of Jakob wearing Yannick’s sunglasses. Just because.
Here’s the back of the cardi after I’d seamed in the sleeve and the side seam.
And here’s the fronts. Since this photo was taken I’ve finished seaming both sleeves and the sides, and picked up and done a few rows of the button band. I’m planning on ripping out the sleeves to redo them and make them more streamlined, ‘cus really, they’re huge. It’s cute when they’re pushed up, but that’s about it.
This is one of Henri’s 18 month chair photos. I can’t believe what a big, gorgeous boy he is. Let’s just bask in that and ignore all the eczema, m’kay?
As for me…I’ve got a few more patterns coming out with KnitPicks, some I’m currently working on, and some waiting for the yarn to arrive. I’m healing from the surgery, and gearing up for the tonsils next Friday. Tomorrow’s my birthday, and I’m seeing friends in the afternoon and evening, and that will be a lot of fun. And this afternoon my hernia popped out again. So apparently, despite the odds, I had a screwed up c-section AND a hernia in another random spot. It hurts, and it really, really sucks, but I’ll get it all sorted out. And eventually I’ll be all fixed up.
Eventually. I hope.
