This is my sampler square made of different types of stitch patterns including seed stitch, cross hatch, and a sidewaysish cabley thingy. It pulls in sitting there but can be stretched out fine for blankie fittage.
All these squares are knit from Elsebeth Lavold Angora in a burnt Orange/Rust color which I had in my stash and it is VERY soft and squooshy and I just want to snuggle my squares-but that would be kind of weird.....I guess............right?
These are coming along just fine-only a bazillion more to go...(and by bazillion I mean 11 but it seems like a lot when time is limited by squalling babies, deck building, sick kids (Thing 2 has some nasty virus), school awards ceremonies (Thing 1 is now OFFICIALLY a second grader-woot!), and the bane of my existence....laundry. I hate laundry.
(Note to self: Look into nudist colony. Think of all the savings!! Detergent, water, money, time.... What's with all the clothes wearing anyway? Oh right, to cover the stretch marks...never mind)Finally, I leave you with a picture of part of my Mother's Day gift (I'm a little behind in my pictures...and everything else in my life) from my beautiful Things 1, 2, and 3 (and a wee bit of help from the Hubby)-2 skeins of Regia Bamboo that is INCREDIBLY soft and a sheepy tape measure whose tail is the tape which retracts when you squeeze his tummy and which I have been wanting for years so it worked out well when Thing 1 broke my other regular, non-cute tape measure 2 days before Mother's Day (she thought of it on her own, though-I've trained her well, young Jedi!). They TOTALLY spoiled me this year-I also got a gorgeous 14K white gold Mother's Necklace with real stones (i.e. not colored glass and one of which is a diamond-go Thing 2 with your birthstone!), lovely flowers and a super duper lunch out. Hmmm, I think I'll keep this job, even if it does involve laundry.....
