Hello, everyone! I may have been silent, but I’ve been doing lots of crafting! I’ve been focusing on some child and baby projects. They’re relatively quick, and you know I love instant gratification. We’ve all been sick (and still are), but I managed to sneak outside with Kirsi for a few minutes to photograph her new Frippery. I quickly regretted that decision once we went back inside and discovered that Eva had found a way to entertain herself in our absence. You see, Eva got a pet fish (Frank) a couple weeks ago. She was told NOT to feed him without Mommy or Daddy present. She must have thought that was just a suggestion, because she fed Frank an entire bottle of pellets while we were outside. There was more food than water in Frank’s tank. Needless to say I banished the kids to the porch while I performed an emergency cleaning. Now Frank’s tank is cloudy because the cleaning messed with his biological filter. I’m more than a little upset. I need to stop talking about this.
Anyway, I did get some cute pictures of Kirsi in her top. The color really compliments her complexion and eyes. The yarn was a birthday gift from my friend, Kristin. Usually I shy away from variegated yarns, but this colorway worked.
I did find a couple of errors in the pattern. They are listed in my project notes. I contacted the designer a while back to let her know, but she never responded, and as of this post, no updated version has been released. Besides the errors, it was an easy knit. I bet Eva will be asking for one in blue (of course) very soon!
