Its been a while

at least for me since I'm so chatty!

I got the cardigan done and despite the measurements saying it would fit a 26" chest and my gauge being perfect (and yes, I even followed the pattern exactly) it would barely close on dd's 22" chest.

I added more seed stitch so I'll take a pic either tomorrow or after I put the buttons on. She wants dinosaur buttons so I'll have to find some for her. I may put it off since it is a wool cardigan, its not like it needs to be finished immediately.

For a baby shower gift a friend gave me a gift card to Have You Any Wool so I went by today. They are starting to carry a larger selection of Cascade 220 so I get a nice tweed in blues and greens. Thinking it may be a sweater for the baby. And I got their fish pattern. Its an adorable stuffed fish that reminds me of a blow fish.

I finished one sleeve and fixed one side. I forgot to bring enough yarn with me to SnB so I didn't start the second sleeve yet. I actually didn't bring any extra yarn so I couldn't even start my back up project (the booties from SnB Nation for a pregnant friend).

I've been told they take less than an hour so maybe I'll work those up tomorrow if I find the time.
I have a very busy day planned.

I made a Ribby Wrap but the picture was fuzzy and I've not taken a new one yet. I think I like the pattern but some parts were confusing to me. Often in a pattern there is something that doesn't make sense but by the end you understand why. There was one part like that but at the end, I still don't know why. It worked though so I'll just do what is says.

I have the LTK mocs pattern too but have a question that I need answered and don't have forum access yet. So I wait.

I also started dd's cardi. I had the back done and was starting on the raglan decreases for the second side when I realized I made the body too long on the first side. So I'll need to redo that, finish the right side and do the sleeves.

It calls for a zipper but that is so scary. I might instead add buttons and a crochet trim. I'm not sure yet.
