My mother in law is coming in today from Buffalo to visit for a few days. This is the only woman who had enough patience to help me learn how to knit. She helped me with the sweater that I have posted, the light blue and white one Baba was wearing. There was no way I could have made that without her!
I did do a little knitting last night. I am almost done with Baba's Easter vest- I just need to pick up the stitches and rib one armhole, then block it. I think it will look very nice on him.
I started on the chart for Elsie, and it is going slow, until I get into the groove. I am enjoying working with the Jaeger luxury tweed. It is a little scratchy, so I am glad I am making a cardi with it.
I had tried to order the yarn for a tank from Viking Knits from Jimmy Beans, but I found out they ran out of it. So I will be buying the yarn tommorrow when we take Mama to Southport. There is a great shop there, Angel Wing Needle Arts.
Thank you to all who posted about George. I am still really upset about his loss. I will definitely get another German. He was not successful breeding before he left, but my breeder does have some of him relatives. God, I just miss him so much. We did destroy the hutch he was in (wood) and the next buns will live in wire crates and inside of my garage. I would rather have rabbits in there and park in the driveway, anyways!!
Hubbie has the next few days off while his mama visits, so I am enjoying spending time with him. I can't wait until I can stop working every Sunday and take back the sabbath!
