my life as a crocheter & knitter & working mom

Not done yet

The lilac yarn on the left is the bit of crochet cast on to be removed. It's still a lot after an hour and a half's work. Would have gone quicker last night if I'd had scissors to cut the waste yarn. Maybe tonight, I can start actually turning the hem. Don't get your hopes up.

In Drab news, Hubby says gold buttons. I've just bought some really pretty ones on eBay. Oh, and the first cuff has been re-knit and the second ripped out and put back on the needles. I should be weaving in ends at some point tonight. Then a bath for her. I'll put some modeled shots up even if I don't have the buttons right away.

I was a pretty good girl last night and barely got on anyone's case. It's amazing how 2 days back on the hormone-delivering green pills makes a difference. I used to want to believe that PMS was overblown and women weren't hostages to their hormones. Now, I know differently (well, I kind of knew it with the PPD). Most women don't have these issues. Me, I'm a loon and if I could go the rest of my life without a mentrual cycle, I'd be happy, and so would everyone around me.

Ooh, there's going to be lots more sewing in these here parts. I'll try to get a pic of the gray skirt I finished last weekend and am planning a teal one this weekend. I bought 7 patterns recently (McCalls had a huge sale and free shipping), plus I hit again hard for the first time in 4 months.

I had severe PPD after DD. Lasted months and was pretty dismal. I'm glad to be past it. I swore off the pill for that reason -- it nearly sent me over the edge. It's DH's problem to solve now. ~evil grin~

Good luck with the provisional CO. Scissors do help, but getting it to work right is a dream. Looking forward to pics.

hormones are SUCH a male chauvinist plot to make us dependent on them for the smallest things. It could be the wrong man, but he's got the right pint of ice cream at the wrong time of month and suddenly he's looking like McDreamy and you can forgive him ANYTHING... (I hate being a slave to my hormones as well... it's so not fair to have your body mess with your personality...)
