A semblance of normalcy- HA!

First off I want to thank all my lovely friends for their thoughts & support. It has been so nice to know I have so many to turn to in this trying time. You guys ROCK!!

In the real world my knitting has been pretty lackadaisical. Amongst the important things I forgot to pack for my trip last week (deodorant, black dress socks, a hair brush) was anything to knit. Luckily when we arrived in Jax & stopped at target to pick up all the other things I had forgotten I found a knit this kit on clearance for $2.77.

I figured it would make a great Christmas gift for Coen & it was an easy knit to keep my mind off of things. I've finished the hat & the booties (which still need to be sewn up) plus I need to add the embroidered features. I guess for $3.00 it wasn't a bad deal. It came with a DVD & pretty decent knitting instructions. The needles were cruddy plastic but I can't complain. At least I had something to keep my hands busy.

My lace leaf pullover is sitting at home mocking me. All the pieces are finished & now all I need to do is graft it and set in the sleeves. Double HA! Easier typed than done. I've only grafted one other thing & it was the bottom of a bag so it didn't matter if it was perfect or noticeable. Someone on craftster posted this wonderful link to
grumperina's grafting advice. I think I will sit down with it this weekend & give it a go.

Now to leave you with something I promised a week ago! Pictures of my finished ballet tee from loop-d-loop.

It was done in Lamb's pride cotton fleece in the color "Rue" on size 15 circs. It was a fast knit & I really love the way it looks lengthened! No crop tops for me!! Eek!!

Oh, Leah. That's gorgeous as always. I love the color. I can't wait to see how the hat turns out... Target's really kicking it up a notch with $1 yarn and kits, huh? Beautiful top.
Leah that looks great, love the color and length on you.

I'm glad you are feeling a bit better, though I know that it will take some time.
The ballet tee is beautiful! The extra length came out perfectly.

I'm glad you have good friends and good memories to get you through your loss.
Love the top!! That is such a great color!

I just got Loop d loop last week- i can't wait to try out some of the patterns!
oops, wanted to add that I got the tamarind! I sent you a card, but I dont have your email to check : )
