Alice Starmore must be brilliant. Her designs are stunning. How I am enjoying the project that must not be named. Take a look! Click to enlarge. Of course having a sick kid means more knitting time since she is taking a super long nap. I don’t want to wake her up so I have been quietly knitting and studying. This picture was taken at the end of the first pattern repeat. I am enjoying the Merino Style from knitpicks, seems to work very well for the project and what a deal! My daughter is thrilled she has socks that match this yarn. I am just pleased that she is learning what matches!


Once sick kid wakes up though, I will be doing some major cleaning! Some may remember the strange wormlike creatures that invaded my home last autumn. Well they are back and the completely freak me out! I really need to figure out what to do about them but for now I will do some deep down cleaning in order to make sure I am not missing any. Call it my autumn cleaning rather than my spring cleaning.

Oh, also, I have an idea to put some sort of little logo into this project.  So I will try to design something and add it in.  I am also looking forward to that!

Sick kid

My daughter is sick.  We have had a real run of health lately so I suppose we are past due.  She has a cold and a cough and we are headed to the Dr. today.

This weekend, she kept telling me “Mommy, my feelings get hurt when I cough.”  I didn’t really understand what she was trying to say but this was consistently the answer.   Finally I asked her where her feelings were.  She said “They are in my ears!”  I asked her to show them to me and she lifted her hair to show me her ears.  Apparently she is having some pain in her ears, as to why this means her feelings got hurt, I have no idea, but how cute and funny!
