Maybe there is something to that theory that the new baby doesn't come until you are able to finish their little gift. The Yarn Harlot talks about it all the time and the last baby she was knitting for arrived as soon as she finished her sweater. Well my N/N just doesn't want to come. It is allowing my sister-in-law to be extremely productive while she waits, but I know she is anxiously awaiting N/N's arrival. She thought (s)he might come last Wednesday, but that didn't happen. That is when I realized it was all my fault! I didn't finish seaming the sweater last Saturday! I left it on the coffee table while I preoccupied myself with my cheerful green and blue towel (although at least I have a good excuse for the delay). So first thing on my list of stops to make on my day off yesterday was to the button shop.
It was amazing how that although there are completely equal amount of all three colors in this sweater, green buttons made the entire thing look green. Yet blue and yellow were just nice accent colors. At this point I think I like the look of the yellow the best, but there is one problem...
This may be the cutest button EVER. And what is the chance that I will make something else in which this button will look so at home and happy? So, I guess I have some finishing to do today, so that N/N will finally join us. ;-)
Also, I am playing the weighing game with the Dakota socks. Of the 4.5 oz. ball of lightweight Obsidian Socks that Rock, I have about 2.5 ozs. left. I am really close to starting the toe.
So I am thinking that I should *hopefully* have enough. But this is going to be a squeaker. Why do men's feet have to be so big? And these aren't even for a man with particularly big feet. I guess worst case, these socks will end up with black toes :-)
Finally, thank you for your kind thoughts for Jenny. She seems to be responding well to the medicine and has been taking it easy. She is definitly not herself, but she did bark at the Kitty again and she is stretching a little when she gets up in the morning. The good news is that she seems to really be enjoying her little doggie bed and has been hanging out in it most of the time.
Well, that's all for me today. Hope you all have a very nice weekend!
