Look! A Sweater!

So... I've been knitting! Hooray! The most exciting part is that I finally finished a sweater that fits!

(Please don't look too closely at my hair. Or my butt because those pants, while comfortable, make my butt look goofy)

This is the Hey Teach! cardigan from Knitty, knit out of Knitpicks Comfy. Buttons from JoAnn's, because where else am I going to get buttons here? Seriously, if anyone knows, please share the knowledge. Buying buttons online to match a sweater seems like an exercise in futility to me.

I also knit some preemie hats out of leftover sock yarn:


Very cute and tiny- I should have included something for scale. Trust me- they're little.

I've been writing. And re-writing. Perhaps when I'm done with this round of writes/rewrites I'll be up to recording the process. For now, it's still a little too fresh.

That is my life these days: work, write, some knitting (although not much), snuggles with SirShedsALot. I've been prepping my applications, and perhaps one of these days that will be bloggable but alas now it is not. Hence the distracting knitting photos.

Tomorrow: finish the re-write on chapter 1, re-write chapter 2 and edit chapter 5 in light of the re-writes. Starting chapter 3 would be good too, seeing as how all the other chapters have at least a first draft done and submitted.

Wow, I am in awe of anyone who can use yarn to make clothing. I think i will be sticking to blankets for a long time, and maybe branching out into dishcloths and tiny stuffed animals. :)

Keep on trucking with the writing. :)
