Re: Extra Fluffy Chat 10/07/2010

The other day I asked this, but no one answered, so I am going to ask again...
I am a beginning to intermediate knitter. How hard is knitting the STIH sweater? I really want to have one for Madison.

It is really much easier than it looks. It is mostly knits and purls with some YOs thrown in. The only part that might get a little tricky is the quilted pattern on the "skirt" b/c there aren't any picture tutorials on how to do it, but it was easy enough to figure out what you were supposed to do. Plus there are plenty of people who would be happy to help you if you need it!

Re: Extra Fluffy Chat 10/07/2010

Maybe I will tackle a STIH sweater for Madison after I finish a few more things. I need to finish my Kenna Top, my Family Roots Grapefruit Love SMSS bloomers set, and my Halloween outfit for Madison. Then I really should knit a few longies for my DS2. He'll still tiny, so the longies shouldn't take much time. I just need to stop on Madison's stash to knit a few pairs for him.

This is very pretty, and gender neutral, and a great price:

I love that, I agree it looks pretty gn.

Not too much going on this morning. In the afternoon I have to take G to the ortho doctor and see if she needs to have her arm casted (repeated elbow dislocations). Given how she was at the last visit, I think there will be a lot of screaming. She is so afraid to have anyone touch her arm. I have been coaching her on what is going to happen, but we will see. On the bright side MIL and FIL are going to watch I and L, so I can take G out for special Mommy time after her visit.

Oh no Emily!!! I bleed a bunch with my DD when I was preggo early on and kept getting worried and it was nothing. She was just fine! I will pray that the same thing happens with you.
