I want to knit a one piece romper but that could be gender neutral. Any easier patterns or suggestions?

Oh and just for good measure a pic of our potty setup. It's perfect and keeps ds from falling off the potty. Love this stool.

I just found some merino wool yarn that I LOVE. Where do you ladies order from? Is there a better site?

OMG DYE WOOL! I DIDNT KNOW YOU COULD DO THAT!!!! AHHHHHH
you can use koolaid and other food/easter egg dyes as well


the sleeve on my sweater is driving me bananas! I was one sts off when I finished my SR's..everything is fine w/me continuting. I was so over pulling it out and it looked good otherwise, so I left it. Normally that drives me crazy to be off but this was the second time pulling it out, so I knit away and it looks fine. IDK what was wrong w/the sts count but you can't tell.

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

my gf just asked me to make her a poppy hat (just like the aviatrix except no strap). Since this was a baby pattern I looked up short row hat and came up w/the escargo and another (the one w/the straps hanging down, I can't remember the name right now) for her to look at. Any other suggestions you guys know of?

Are you using scotch tension? You probably need to turn up your tension a tiny bit at a time until it's pulling enough.

That's how our downstairs bathroom is, we're lucky we have a shower!

It should be non-stretched, unless it specifically says "after blocking". And for rompers, the gift-wrap romper I think is cute and GN, and the hat pattern is darling that she pairs with it.
I'll check the tension, thanks for the hint!

I just tried some crystallized ginger. I got it for the pumpkin custard recipe (its for the topping). MMm, its good....not too sweet, nice and spicy.

No, Pixie's never been with a sitter and it's a weeknight so I'm sure the kids will go along. It's ok, eating out is still a treat I just need to figure out gluten free options available and narrow it down. My mom asked if we wanted anything for our anniversary and seemed excited when I mentioned PF Chang's, so I thought she might send that, but she didn't send anything so IDK. (I wouldn't have expected anything if she hadn't asked, but the convo was weird otherwise). We might still go there, but if we're paying vs. gift card obviously there are more options to consider.

Did my MQ not pick up the einstein sweater? I'm only halfway through my tea. Both sweaters were adorable!!
