Just in Time for Fall

Finished my new stripey fingerless gloves just as the weather turned cool. Wanted to take pictures. Set up the iPad in the yard...

Mom's Gloves

...tried to take pictures with my toe while L brought me leaves...

Mom's Gloves

...until he got interested in the iPad...

L's Apple

...and showed it his apple...

Mom and L

"Hey, L, can you press the button for Mommy?"

Mom and L

Of course he can!

Mom and L

Mmm. Juicy apple.

Mom and L

Perfect morning.

Twist and Shout

If you haven't had a chance to check out the Winter 2011 Twist Collective yet, I have a pattern in it! And look! There are horses!

I'll talk more about it in my next post (I am knitting a pair all for my very own), but right now I just want to jump and point and giggle with glee. I hope you like it!

Little Knitter

Z Knits

Since I am feeling too blah to pose for pictures, here is my Z modeling my (finally!) completed Round the Corner Cardi. It's a modified version of Shiri Mor's Round the Corner Hoodie, and it is lovely and very cozy, and I will tell you all about it some other time.

Really I just wanted to point out that green yarn Z is holding. She picked it up, wound it around herself several times, and announced, "I'm knitting a sock for Mama."

Z Does Not Like Wearing This

Guys, I've been in a knitting funk.

The purple thing, which in my head was this awesome möbius-like vest for Z, turned into this:

Purple Thing

Or possibly this:

Purple Thing

Urgh. I don't know. It hasn't been frogged, because part of me (probably the same part that thought I could make a vest this way) thinks I can salvage it with a hood and some sleeves. Maybe this is my inexperience showing; no matter how I sketch and swatch, nothing turns out quite the way I imagined once it's knitted.

So, who else has a disaster story to share in the comments?
