Super busy that’s where. Also I suffered from my usual bout of insomnia last week and I’m just starting to catch up on my rest.

I have been working on the cardigan though. And the progress has been slow. Here’s where I am:


Sorry the picture isn’t great – I just took it in my living room without any sunlight since it’s 9 p.m. It’s hard to see, but the diamond pattern isn’t showing up very well with this yarn. I knew the yarn would look different from the smooth, silk/cotton blend the pattern called for but I had no idea it would be this different. I’m not unhappy with it and I think once it’s washed and block the pattern will show up a bit more.

It was my birthday last week and I got a sewing machine. I’ve very excited about the whole thing and I can’t wait to try it out. I can’t really sew but I have many friends and family who have offered their help. I’m confident I can do it. For my first project I want to make a simple skirt. Maybe something to match my cardigan.
