I'm sorry for the way I've been acting.
I'm sorry for the way I've been talking about you.
I'm sorry that I've chosen other projects over you, and yes, even started other projects to avoid spending time with you.
I know it would have hurt, and I'm sorry.
But Dolce, please forgive me. You really are so lovely, and now that we've been spending time together really trying to figure out how each of us work, I have to say, I really do respect you. You are beautiful.
Thanks Dolce for being patient with me.
I see alot of time together in our future.
P.S. Dolce, this might be asking too much, especially considering our recent separation, but if you could somehow work out to be the perfect fit for your recipient, I might even make you some brothers and sisters.
Well, it's Thursday, my little boy is asleep, and my creative space is full of a cosy blanket, some tv watching, and a sock that is frustrating me. But I want to move past the frustration, so I can finish it and move on to less frustrating creations!
We've had highs and lows in our house today.
From a sad boy who I think is getting a 2yo molar...
To a very happy 3yo whose mum finished her new shirt!
The ruffle at the bottom is driving me crazy, but short of adjusting it every time she moves (!) I'm just going to have to let that go.
"Summer Ruffled Top", a free top-down seamless pattern for 8ply, knitted from stash in yummy chocolate brown and pink 100% wool.
I knitted the 3-5t size, and it's as written, apart from being 1" shorter at the bottom than suggested. I was worried at that point that I wouldn't have enough brown left to finish the sleeves, and this is how much wool I had left over...
so I was pretty close!
We finished off the modelling session with a Tea Party. As you do.
I love the way that colours can soothe, or excite, or make you smile... I find it amazing that something your eye interprets as a particular shade or hue can affect your mood.
Back to the chocolate brown knitting :)
