Lazy Blogger

Fortunately, I knit something for E., so I can distract you with cute.

It's the Little Sister's Dress, knit at a different gauge (I think), and after I finished the stripes I just joined the body to knit in the round, casting on a few stitches in each underarm when I got there (the pattern asked you to knit a few rows flat on just the front or back before joining), like a top-down raglan. And I added the stripes--the original was solid.

Too bad everything else I own you pictures of is adult-sized!

In other news, I have a race on Saturday (rowing), and then Kevin has a tri on Sunday. In preparation for the race, we practiced every morning this week (rather than just 3 or 4 days). That extra day or 2 of getting up at 4:35 was painful, and to make matters worse, I wasn't home either of the days I wasn't at work (on Monday, the SnBers went on a field trip to MA, for yarn and fabric shopping--incredibly, I only bought a bowl of soup!--and on Thursday I was doing some consulting) so I couldn't nap. So I'm tuckered!

As a result, it's taken me all week to knit 2 inches of sock--or at least it feels that way.

Beyond cute! Please tell me the wonderfulness of the dress is appreciated by ALL who see it.

That is some very distracting cuteness! Hope your race went well!
