See Betty, I'm in a picture!Vacation is never really a vacation anymore. Having a baby sort of detracts from rest. But totally worth every second! e has a tooth! On friday it finally popped through. I think more are close behind. He did pretty good for having a tooth come in. I've also learned the importance of a nap. Enough about baby though!
I started knitting! Ahh. I'm knitting my first color work piece too. Endpaper Mitts (Ravelry link) I think they are looking pretty good.
You can see the new office space in the background! A little messy, but an improvement.
I'm probably knitting too loose to air on the side of caution. But I also didn't have the right needle size to make the size that would fit me. I think it all works. I've done one full repeat of the pattern and have started the second, I'm not sure what I think of the colors I chose.
I might reverse it on the next mitt to see if the pattern shows up better. I almost wonder if I messed up the pattern because it's not coming through very consistent. I was knitting this while on the train with my mom and e. Trying to hold a conversation and make sure e was adequately entertained! We'll see what the next pattern repeat reveals. I decided to knit these as samples for the booth at OFFF. Now that I'm back I feel like I need to dye everyday to get it all done! I need to call my baby sitters!
More to come later about the trip, e is now international, and about a treat that will be at OFFF! E's working on somethings that will be in the booth!
