Remember this tank top.. well I wore it the other night and ... um.. little by little it started stretching.. and it didn't seem to spring back the way it did when I first tried it on.. as the evening wore on .. it actually started to get dangerously low.. I kept hiking it up.. (which didn't help at all) I'm going to wash it and see if that might help it tighten up a bit.. then I'll have to wear it around the house for an hour or so to make sure that it's safe to wear in public again..
This is what I have been working on for the past 2 days.. my bf's sister is having a baby in a couple of weeks and I wanted to knit a few items up for the babies arrival. They already know it's going to be a little boy. This will be her 3rd child. There's not much u can knit for summer baby in Florida.. So I'm whipping up a soft garter stitch blanket and some booties. Babies always seem to have sweaty feet so I don't know if she will use them.. maybe in the air-conditioning.. I want to finish the blanket today as I'm over the half way mark and have started decreasing. The yarn I'm using btw is Moda Dea Aerie in cream and lt. blue. It's velvety soft... and this is the reason I haven't touched my diamond shawl..>.< .. no progress there in the last few days.
The mail man delivered some fiber yesterday... I ordered the soft pink one which is a mohair blend and it took a while to get here so the seller sent me and extra 4 ounces of a pretty blue blend.. I purchased this on Ebay from Jehovah Jireh Farm... and now I'm itching to spin but I need to finish knitting my baby gifts.. I can work on a few projects at a time.. but I really like to work on one and finish it completely before I start something else.. or sometimes I'll do a gauge swatch for the next project I plan to do orI'll even cast on and work a few rows before finishing my wip.. and my spinning gets put aside " until I finish my current project". Maybe if I spin and hour a day ..that would work.. but I know me and I would have to spin 2 bobbins and ply it before I would stop. Oh well.. I'll work something out.. It's a beautiful day in Florida today..in the 80 deg. range not humid and very breezy.. The perfect day..
