Good morning! We got to sleep in until 8 too! Bad thing is that Em was up twice last night... Must have been bad dreams.

Brrr to the weather you arctic ladies are having- it's supposed to be 60 today here.

Cute hats Melissa!

Wool looks like fun Mindy!

Ouchie on the swelling Andrea.

Vegging on the couch while I wake up, then getting B ready to go to Mom Mom's. I look forward to the day she takes Em for the day too. I started one of the legs last night on longies.

5) The pile. I purposefully dyed in blotchy chunks, so I can play with blending it as I card it

I was sewing and cleaning in between changing water pots etc
Mindy, that looks so fun and great pics! I need to come visit and learn from you!

CO a sweater for myself last night and got a few inches into it, yay! Now I need a good book to read while I

I'm sure Fi helped, if not. I can. I knit one w/dk. I just used the head circum on the pattern that matched my gauge. It comes out w/ a nice drape. I made it extra long so it could be floppy down the back. Yes, I see the KOTO They both look super cute!

Re: KAL ~ Christmas Crafts: Dec 2-8

I got the provisional cast on and I think its right.The way this lady writes patterns really trips me up- however, she is thorough. So I'll struggle through but ultimately get it right.

1 warm skoodlet, coming up!

Cassie, I hope the questioning subsides!

Anyone have any good links, videos, or advice on reinforcing a crotch gusset? I have a customer asking for me to do it. I've done it before while I was knitting the gusset, but not after. Tia
