Hi my friends. Looks like I am now down to writing once a month. I'm sorry about that but I have to admit I am just so exhausted on every level. Work has been crazy although as of this week I have discharged two kids so that should lighten my load a bit. Emotional stuff continues and I am busy trying to sort things out. Life will get easier but I fear for the next six to eight months or so I am just going to be a bit of a mess. But I know that things will eventually even out and I will find my safe and peaceful place once again. Hope you can all hold on until things settle down.
Here is my growing Little Buddy, writing apology notes for the second day in a row. We are trying to make some medication changes with this little boy that might be affecting his ability to be a nice and respectful friend. Don't let that smile fool you he can be a pistol. He refused to write notes and told me he is done writing apology notes. Well that was excellent news for me because that means he is done being a pistol at school, right? He is growing, and that might be affecting him as well. There is always so much to think about with this little guy.
I have been very busy knitting. This is a shorter version of the harebell sweater. I finished it in the middle of January. I used Berroco Remix yarn in the color New Leaf. Just over four skeins of yarn used. I used size 8 needle for the body, size 7 for the bottom, front and collar ribbing and size 6 for the wrist ribbing. I started the bottom ribbing at about 12 inches form the arm edge, you can make it shorter or a lot longer like the pattern states. I have already started another one.
Another baby blanket ripple has been completed. This one for another great niece or nephew. Made with Berroco Pima 100, in the colors mint and Sea Holly, the colors are more vibrant than these photos. A size H Hook was used and almost the entire 1,090 yards of yarn in the five skeins purchased for this blanket.
