Hi! and Finished Object!


finished sahara
Originally uploaded by laurel717.
Its been a while since this has been finished, but I just haven't been photographing well. I give up and will post this one, taken this morning, anyway. This is Sahara by Wendy Bernard, in Katia Diana. A wonderful pattern, seriously, you HAVE to make it. I myself wasn't interested because its advertised in silk and sequins (see the link), and it wasn't until I saw a photo of one in an unfussy yarn that I saw the potential for me.

I had another finished sweater in the time since I last posted, but I kind of gave it to my sister I think.

Now I'm working on socks and a crocheted baby blanket. Going to start some koigu booties and the kate gilbert rabbit.

I haven't been able to find a haircutter that works for me since my guy moved away last year. I just can't stand to look at pictures like this.

Right now I'm wearing a thick elasticized band that allows me to wear my pre-pregnancy jeans unbuttoned. I feel real silly, I gotta say.

Talk to you later!!!!!

"crocheted" looks funny when it's in writing.

GULP! A bun in the oven? I saw J. on the street a couple of weeks ago and he looked happy - maybe it's the man-glow the guys get. Congratulations!

PS - I love your sweater!

Laurel said...

Thanks Wendee!

I love your version of Sahara, so much more wearable than the fancy-pants versions. That's a great color for you, too.

Congrats on your pregnancy! Yay! I just love those first months when you're not really showing but you feel like a potato. :)
