Aaaaaand of course the day didn't work out like I'd planned. I was out of the house more than in it and got no knitting done until I took DD to her doctor's appointment this afternoon. This was probably her last visit to the pediatric office we've gone to since she was two years old. The appointment was supposed to be yesterday, but all hell broke loose, they got severely behind, so we ended up leaving before they saw us. We had to, if she was going to be on time for her driving test. She passed the test, we changed the appointment to today, and everything worked out in the end.
I'm still trying to wrap my brain around all these changes and milestones. My baby is gone, but I've gained a designated driver--she'll drive while I knit. Awesome!
Maybe I can finish the sweater tomorrow, but with my luck, I think I'll buy a lottery ticket--that might be a surer bet. I love the buttons I found--I think they pick up the colors in the yarn nicely. They're shank buttons, so I pushed some through the stitches so I could see how they'd look. It needs a good blocking, but I think it will be very sweet.
Giving a shout-out to My Kitchen in the Rockies. Check it out--she's got a killer watermelon cocktail recipe today. Kirsten, maybe next time you're going to be in Denver, let me know and we can do a yarn crawl together.
Dear Susan, thank you so much for the shout out. I love the little "Blumenknoepfe" for the sweater. They are adorable. I love that you picked them in different colors. Tilly will be so proud you made her such a pretty sweater. Yes, next time I am close to your house I will let you know in advance. Congratulations to your daughter for becoming the designated driver. I am sure she will have no problem driving while you knit.ReplyDelete
Have a great evening.
So many milestones for your family this summer!ReplyDelete
Those are super cute buttons!ReplyDelete
Hope you feel better! The buttons are beautiful, and thanks for the blog recommendation. I've checked it out, and I look forward to reading it. I've added it to my google reader. (still google reader until I figure out something else. Bloglines hasn't appealed too much but I haven't given it much of a chance.)ReplyDelete
The buttons are adorable!ReplyDelete
Never thought of a DD for knitting - but I think I have just a few years before I get one :)
Hope you are feeling better soon. Will you smack me if I say congrats on your daughter passing her driving test? Yeah, okay, I won't say that. I will, however, gush over how adorable that wee little sweater is. *gush gush gush*ReplyDelete
