If you don't have one of these, you need one!
I've had a small GoKnit Pouch for years, but just recently acquired a medium size one from The Loopy Ewe. It's wonderful! The small one is perfect for a sock on the go, but the medium will easily hold the back of a sweater and a few extra balls of yarn.
I was really trying to stick with the above cardigan through its completion but I couldn't resist starting another lace project.
This is Juno Regina from last fall's Knitty in Malabrigo lace. I think the discouragement from Talia is best remedied with a project that will require no sizing, gauge, or finishing. (I also love pudgy little boy fingers.)
I have been mildly obsessed with this yarn since I received it last week.
It's Hand Maiden Casbah in "Smoke" and is a blend of Merino, Cashmere & Nylon in gorgeous shades of lavendar and greys. In hopes of being able to knit something large enough to wrap myself up in, I quickly tried to order some more but it was sold out. I'm not sure what I could knit with only 325m aside from socks, but I'm considering a small blankie to sleep with or just wearing the hank around my neck like a scarf. If you have any ideas, please, shoot them my way.
Remember that little loose tooth that JoJo was so worried about? The poor little guy has not even been able to go to sleep at night without some assurance that it won't fall out when he's sleeping... and that little loose teeth don't just drop out of your mouth without you knowing about it. So we get in the car about an hour ago and he suddenly shouts, "Where is my tooth? It's gone!" And so it is.
Whadda ya know.
Lastly, one of my not so favorite things... proudly displayed by my reptile catching son in the middle of my living room.
I don't know why the little guy didn't dash off his hand any more than I know why I told him to stay put while I grabbed the camera. But it did... so I did. According to my son, it's a Blue Bellied Lizard in case you're all wondering. But I'm guessing you're not.
