I am so happy and excited about my French Market Bag. I have finished the base and have finally started my 1st color - now to decide how/when to switch to the contrasting color. I have a ways to go before I have to decide, but I am really digging working in the round!
Miss Gracie is feeling much better today, but she's in that "coming out of the cold" hot/cold stage. She'll be giggling and having a good time with me and then the next second she's yelling and throwing her body around, and signaling she wants to nurse. So far each day is still getting better, so this should be over soon :)
I had started a blankie for Gracie with Homespun I had purchased when I was first pregnant and debating crocheting or learning to knit. I was too sick/unmotivated to crochet/scared to knit so it sat and sat until I caught the knitting bug, and I used 1/2 of the stash for a ponchette. But now I'm looking at this other yarn that I was going to attempt IK's Isis Wrap with, and I think I'll do the blankie with this stuff and get some yummy/more appropriate yarn for Isis after/for my birthday - that homespun can just sit for a little while longer ;)
I happened to be on-line long enough last night for an old friend to find me, it is often neat to catch up with someone from another "era" of your life...at least for me, generally. I had lost his contact info, so I was taken by surprise when he IM'd me. So, thanks, Daniel for saying hello! I look forward to keeping in touch with you! If I find Marie before you do, I'll let you know ;)
Sleep is pulling at me...I guess I'm turning in early tonight....Happy Knitting! ~ and I'll get those update photos up soon, I promise!
