So, I have been knitting...I finished the Millwater cowl a couple of weeks ago. I didn't make it as long as the pattern says, but I like the length! My first finished knit! Yay!
I was so excited that I went out to our local yarn store and started hunting around for some yarn for a honey cowl. I have loved this pattern ever since I saw it (as did everyone else out there!) I found some yarn in the clearance section which is a pretty, shimmery gray. It is a cashmere/silk/rayon and super stiff, so it took me awhile to get used to it. It was really hurting my wrists at first. However, once I blocked it, the yarn really softened up! So, I am moving on from cowls and for my next project I am going to try and tackle a vest for Josiah for Christmas! *crossing fingers*
I am popping onto the sewing machine here and there, but lately I am *so* tired at the end of the day. You should see us once we put the kids to bed. We both become zombies on the couch for half an hour before we can even speak. haha. The life of parents with four small kiddos.
