Knitting Up A Storm!

Monday, June 26, 2006

With June almost to an end and all my parties and party preparation complete, I feel the weight of the world OFF my shoulders. Man, does it ever feel good to know that I do not have anything on the go other than the usual stuff. My house is pretty much put back to the way it was before the birthday party, other than a few more dishes and washing down the deck.

My daughter's 7th birthday party was a huge SUCCESS. Everyone had such a great time. The kids were all excited to go swimming, jump in the castle or play on the playground set in the back. I believe they were not too happy when they had to leave, but who could blame them? There was so much to do and all of it fun, fun, fun! I wish I took more pictures but it was difficult when you have a party to run.

I know my loss of knitting mojo wasn't that long. But I am sure most people feel like it is a long time when you can't seem to get the knitting on track no matter how long the period is. I think it is back, but who knows, the chickami I am making (I'm at the raglan section now, thank you very much) might be a tad too small. So I may feel like knitting, but the knitting doesn't want to happen.

I made the 34" size, even though my bust and hips are 36" hoping this cotton will stretch out by 2" and then it will fit me. If it does stretch up to 2", then if I made the 36", it would stretch to 38" - way too big.

This is a bit of a trial knit so I can learn from it and get to know my measurements a bit better. At the end of the day, if I turn out a few crappy items, at least I'll learn from them. If this cami fits, I'll be so happy because then I can finish up Tulip. I'm looking forward to knitting this tank top - the pattern, the yarn and the needles are a perfect match and I want to wear the Katia Jamaica next to my skin. It knits up like heaven and I'm sure it will wear like a cloud. Stay tuned, well that is if you are interested.

Have a good day.
