my life as a crocheter & knitter & working mom

Random Monday

Although, I liked Julie's suggestion about growing into the skirt, I decided to take it in. It's still a tad big, but I wore it to church yesterday.

Elan, you can go to and find the local store selling pints of certain flavors. Me, I need more creme brulee.

Drab is kind of in a time out. I spent much of Saturday trying to figure out an edging that would prevent the curling along the bottom. I had done a nice single crochet edging on the sleeve cuffs, but it didn't work on the bottom hem. Eventually, I did 12 rows of a garter-slip stitch which I love. So, we'll see how it all works out after a wash. It seems to have combatted the curl for the most part (although it comes right back if I'm not careful how I fold the sweater when putting it away). I've started picking up the insane number of stitches for the neckband and front edges. It's going to take a while. Fortunately, the air is off today at work.

I brought Serrano instead for my commute knitting. Drab is just too big to haul around. I'll work on Drab exclusively at home, but Serrano will be commute knitting. I should be turning the hem tonight which means I'll start working the eyelet pattern soon.

Mother's Day was good. I spent too much time cleaning, but M-i-L did the dishes and wiped the counters after dinner, so that was one chore I was spared. B was cute wishing me a Happy Bir-Mother's Day all weekend. He couldn't quite remember that it wasn't my birthday.

We're going to Vermont in about 3 weeks. I can't wait to see my Mom and Dad again. And if I see little sister, I need to get her measurements for her birthday present.

Nice day--it's always nice when someone else does the stuff that you dread the most...

The Cave Troll gave me his handprint--I told him he was my superhero, and he's been my superhero ever since:-)
