One day late. I know.
Last weekend we celebrated Amber’s second birthday with the family. We had a great afternoon with lots of delicious cake (pumpkin pie, apple pie, cheesecake, chocolate cake and a “smarties cake” baked by Amber’s God mother). Everyone fell for the apple cake I baked. I fell for my cheesecake. I don’t like apple cakes. Did I ever mention that I love baking? I love baking!
Concerning my wip, I am currently working on a cardigan for Hazel. She recently told me she likes to wear something “on top” over her shirts, a vest for example. She enjoys wearing the Wild Vanilla I knit for her. For winter, I thought – and I am hoping I can get my point across with her too – something long sleeved would be more appropriate. The “skirt” will surely help too. She loves dresses and skirts and things that swing.
Color-wise I am really risking something – I am knitting something NOT blue! I am not sure how she will take it. It might very well be that this cardigan needs to wait till Amber fits in it.
Last night, I also tried something new:
Tonight I frogged the sock again. 64 stitches is most definitely to big!
Don’t know what I was thinking. Socks. Me!
