Does it really count as a FO if you haven’t really FO’d it completely? I mean, the knitting is done, the ends are woven in, but the buttons, maybe not. I planned to get buttons on Wednesday. Some on man, I am right there in a knitting shop that has buttons! Or I pass several shops where they sell buttons. But I didn’t pick up any buttons! My mind was distracted at the shop helping a friend
become addicted, um, learn to knit a shawl. Then I had to grab some groceries. Then I had to run Diva to the ER*. Then I had to get to choir. It was just not a good day. At least all the events afforded me knitting time.
My take on the Baby Sophisticate is pass on it. The sizing is not good, too long and narrow for my tastes. So even though it’s easy, just not the best choice. I prefer Gramps, but the gauge was not a good fit for the yarn on hand, so I went with the BS. Of course, that doesn’t explain why I cast on another BS! LOL. I have enough BC left over and with a few additional increases and shortening of the length I think it will be better. And when I finally do get out to get buttons I will just buy double!
*She started having pain on Tuesday that the Mec center said might be Gall Bladder. By Wednesday afternoon the pain had not subsided. Called her Doc and they said just take her to ER. Tests did not show any issues with GB, appendix, or kidneys. But the ER Doc prescribed a hida scan to determine if the GB is functioning correctly. I just want them to find something! This poor girl has been through it the last 2 years. With her cysts, pain, and surgery, to try to find answers, she is ready to just be done with all the unnecessary organs in her body! LOL
