Aw, I'm sure you can make her something lovely to replace it. I felt that way about Pixie's rompers because she was so refluxy, they just didn't work and got ruined from me trying.

I want to try steeking but it gives me nervous twitches.

I need to know something I can make for ME from Tart. Pregnancy/nursing friendly pattern a bonus.

I really think this is where I am supposed to recommend the watercourse. But, well... Yeah, about that...

Rb went back to get the other cases of bananas and they were gone. Which, I told him they would be. It's cool, I still got one. Now I need to go get flour and sugar and butter and get to baking!

Karyn I need banana cake and all other banana treasures you have.

Re: KAL Oct 7-13 *Knit the funk away!*

I love KP Swish. It's really soft! And not hard on the wallet either. It's my go to for knitting for gifts for people so I don't have to use the dreaded acrylic. :shudder:

I like the Bella mitten. I made a pair last year. They were fun, but I'd rather not do it again. lol

Amen to that.

I like those patterns but I want longer during pregnancy/nursing. I like something that can open during huge belly phase but is long enough to cover postpartum belly, kwim? I like the vine one a lot but I'm not up for another bottom up sweater yet. I need to do my darn tea leaves but it *has* to be handspun and I'm not spinning yet for it.
