I have five high-quality (non-iPhone) photos of Hugo. Pretty ridiculous considering his face looks like THIS.
His photos made me realize I need to start carrying my DSLR again. The iPhone, while convenient, doesn’t even compare quality-wise. I forgot for a second there
Hugo’s been with us for almost five months now and I’m happy to report that he and Lily are BFFs. I was really concerned I wouldn’t be able to handle two on my own but it’s actually a little easier as they keep each other entertained. His separation anxiety has disappeared and I think he knows he’s with us for the long haul.
I know I haven’t posted that much craftiness lately but with good reason. I’m putting together a small clothing collection! It’s not for retail or anything major, just my portfolio. I’ve grown a lot since I first started and my portfolio needs to reflect that.
I’ve been able to sneak in some knitting at night and have two projects on the needles. One is a cardigan that hasn’t reached the photographable state yet and the other has to be kept secret until the end of the month.
I have a dentist appointment today and I think they’re going to tell me if busting my jaw is really necessary. Wish me luck.
The right mitt was my first attempt at fair isle one and a half years ago. It sucked. The left mitt, which I just finished yesterday, turned out much better. Even stitches, even tension. I blocked the two together and while the right one improved, the difference between them is still noticeable.
Lumpy right mitten on the left, awesome left mitten on the right. (Guess I wasn’t paying attention when I put them down to photograph!)
Awesome left mitten on the left, lumpy right mitten on the right.
I have a few dresses to finish today and tomorrow I’ll be out and about. Hope you all have a great weekend!
I started the Sidewalk Shawl last week during the opening ceremonies. It took a while for me to get used to the written instructions (charts are my preference) but I got the hang of it after a repeat. So far I’m “meh” about the project. I was going to power through it but I think I have to set it aside and work on something else.
I finished my pullover (based off this one by Vince) a few weeks ago and I’m really happy with how it turned out. Definitely worth my time and the best part? The yarn was free.
Today I went to The Griddle Cafe with Katie and it was amazing. I ordered the Black Magic Pancakes and was shocked when the waiter brought them out. Seriously, 12″ in diameter. And there were three. She was a lot more responsible and ordered a waffle.
Now I’m off to re-knit these mittens. Lily and Hugo will be nearby, I’m sure. Happy Friday!
