My Least Favorite Cast On

Sorry for the pun, but it’s true. Sweetie Boy rolled his foot in PE about a week and a half ago, and after resting it for a week, it wasn’t getting any better. The orthopedist said there wasn’t any fractures that could be seen on the x-ray, but recommended casting his foot for a week, so he could get proper rest. That’s what we did. It comes off on Thursday, so fingers crossed it’s all better. Even with the cast slowing him down a little bit, Sweetie Boy is still all smiles. He’s always been my happy boy ever since he was a baby.

Lest you think I don’t knit anymore (even though I don’t seem to blog about it much), I have been making progress on Ariann. Look! She even has arms now.
The color is a bit of a deeper teal color, and I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of this sweater. I’m using some Cascade 220 which I scored for a pittance from the Knit Happens Online clearance. We have had a nice couple of days which actually felt like fall. This weekend, at Sweetie Girl’s 8 a.m. soccer game, I was chilly enough to wear my wool CPH! Unfortunately, it’s not long-lived as temps are predicted to get back into the ’90s this week. Ugh! Fall, where are you?

It’s Done

Hanami, aka the pink blob, is finally done. Only two weeks late. I’m relieved and it has not yet registered that my greatest knitting achievement is complete. I think I’ll let it sit a bit before blocking. The weather is supposed to heat up again to the mid 90’s so I won’t have any chance soon to wear it.

I’m heading back out to sleeve island to spend some time with Ariann. Hope to resurface again soon!
