Re: Knitters/Hookers/Dyers/Spinners WIP 09/30/2010

Morning Ladies,

It's raining cats and dogs here too. I convinced DH to stay in bed with me this monring. His commute will be over 2 hours in this weather! ugh He works outside DC and the traffic here is horrific.

Emily, with the way you have been feeling....MAybe 1/2 your first trimester is already gone?

I'll have pics later/ Lots of yarn. A few WIPS.

I am contemplating knitting a wendy sweater. Any feedback? I'd like to use a natural colored yarn. suggestions? I am thinking a pound cone of something would work, 2t size.

Hey!


So I must have gotten some of that special water that is going around, because this morning I got a positive!!! Due at the beginning of JUNE!!!

The funny thing is that I can't tell DH till tomorrow evening as he is out in the boonies and has no cell reception.

I've only knit straight legs, so i'm not sure how to go about tapering it as I go down.
Do you have the sheepy pants pattern? It tells you how to taper a leg, I've never done it either though.

Amber,
I am a bit scared of starting and never finishing the wendy.

Does anyone know if you're allowed to knit the Owlie sleep sack for profit or is it just for personal use?
