My little man is 4 today! I can hardly believe how fast the time has gone. Here is a pic of him as a preemie in the NICU, and the handsome boy he is today. I love love love this boy. He makes me happy every day. Happy Birthday Nathan! Posted by Picasa

The watch cap is done

And I can't believe I forgot to take a picture. Eric left this morning for the boat, and won't be back until Monday or Tuesday. Hopefully they will do well. I'm really glad to be done with that hat! Now if my yarn would arrive, I can start on the bags I am making for a couple of friends. I'm hoping it will be here today.

We will drive up Monday with my fil to meet the boat and see Mackinaw. Mmmmm, fudge!

Here is the the band of the watch cap so far. The boat my husband sails on is named George. I hope I can finish the rest of it today. Posted by Picasa

I had to frog it.

My kids got into the tivoli t-shirt and I wasn't able to fix it. Can you see me crying? I had to frog the damn thing. I haven't had the heart to start over. I have a couple of bags to make for people once the yarn arrives, so I'll do those to get my mind off of it. I may do the tank from Interweave, too, while I'm waiting for yarn.

It just sucks so bad. I was almost done.

Tivoli t-shirt in progress. I may add a seed stitch border that isn't a part of the pattern. The stockinette rolls and I think that will bother me. We'll see. Posted by Picasa

A cap for my sailor

My husband is going to be in the Port Huron to Mackinac yacht race in a week, and has asked me to make him a watch cap to wear on the night shift, as it gets pretty cold and wet. He is one of those guys that operates the winches that turn like coffee grinders. He always has fabulous shoulders by the end of the summer. Now I have to figure out how to get the name of his boat to come out right on a brim you turn up. I'll need plenty of coffee and an absence of kids, I think. Intarsia and small children just don't work well together.

I keep waiting to feel better without the chemo, but I'm still barfing. ugh. Maybe it will take a while for the toxins to clear my system. It's bad enough to have kinky, strange colored hair in place of what I used to have. Why do I have to keep on puking?

Well, enough feeling sorry for myself. I think I'll plop in front of the tv and knit. A cup of coffee sounds nice, too.

Cleaves is done! I really like it. It isn't see through in the front. My camera kept picking up the white tank top for some reason. Posted by Picasa

My first day off of chemo!

What a fabulous feeling! I feel like I've been freed from prison. I might actually start to get enough energy back to get some things done around here. That might take a little while. At least I'm not nauseated.

I'm using some eBay money to get the yarn for the cabled shrug from Interweave. I'm hoping to get it done by the cool weather this fall. I've done small cabling projects, but this will be my first complicated one. We'll see how it goes.
