And finally- this cute little sheep was a present from the boyfriend's mom... Isn't he just the cutest thing you ever saw? It kinda makes me wish I wasn't allergic to everything and could raise sheep.
oops- before I forget, here's the update on my work shell. I'm sort of winging the sleeves, and not taking notes, because the shape of the back is not anything like the front. Wish me luck :)
I gave up the unending in- between project for this. Ignore the crazy looking kid from the fifties and focus on the cute cardigan. I'm making it in the 1 year old size for my nephew in Switzerland. He's only 3 months old right now.... you might ask WHY am I starting this now? Well... I got the cutest picture in my email - my nephew wrapped in the baby blanket I made for him. MUST...KNIT... MORE!
Happy Easter! For today's celebration, I've decided to post my progress on a number of different projects that I've neglected to update you on....let's start with the familiar- you probably recognize this baby blanket from a few posts months back. It's my in-between project, the one I can only work on a few repeats at a time before I start cursing it's existence. You know what I mean. This time I made it through 2 1/2 repeats (hot pink section, white, hot pink, light pink, hot pink and white) And now I've started a new project.Oh unconstant heart!

it's been a while
I haven't finished seaming the jacket yet... or worked on the lace sock lately. But I did bring the pink and white squiggly baby blanket. It's my in-between project, for when I am burnt out on other projects.
I have a little story though...
I was knitting in public. I can't remember where though, so that's a little strange- but it was probably at the law school in between classes or in another area. And this middle aged lady walked by me and said "that's a good thing to do with your hands" and just kept walking. It was a little amusing, since she didn't actually say it to me... just commented out loud and kept moving. I'm always surprised about how so many people have some comment.
