Just About The Knitting (And Sewing) Today
I had thought about writing another Heidi-history post today, or an anorexia post, or some sort of deep meaningful post today…But then I decided to just let that all rest…I’ve got therapy tomorrow, there will be enough deep meaning then…Today is a light day. Today is a knitting (and sewing) post kind of day!
I got my first full square done for the blanket. I am so, so, so happy with the grey and blue! They look better together than I imagined they would.
Now, I need to cast on for an identical square and then after that, I have to knit two squares with the grey and the darker blue.
The crazy thing is that at the moment, my needles are empty! <gasp> I will have to remedy that ASAP! 🙂
Last night, I made a trip to get some buttons for the green sweater. I found buttons that are absolutely perfect. The purple flower will be for the outside of the sweater and the green will be for the inside. The flower looks amazing on the green. I am really pleased I found nice buttons. And I only need one of each button…So I will have to think of a project to go with the other two buttons!
And while at the button store, I perused fleece. We brought our little dog home from the greyhound rescue a year ago the 27th. As an anniversary present for her, I am going to make her a new coat. After hemming and hawing over fleece choices for half an hour, I finally spied this fleece. Perfect!
The little dog will love it, I am sure!
Yup…nothing like a
And lastly, as I was cranking out stripes last night, I had a friend “helping” me. The big dog is particularly attached to me and any time I am sitting on the couch, he curls up beside me and either puts his head on my lap or tucks it behind my back. Yesterday, his devotion even surpassed having yarn tickling his ears and my blanket square flip-flopping on his face.
Nope, no spoiled dogs here!
