It is amazing what happens when you put your mind to something. I decided last week that I would cast on for a sleep sack, and I did! Did I finish the sleep sack? Nope, but I hope to before the end of the month!
I started searching for a sleep sack pattern, but couldn’t find anything that I liked. That seems to always be the way with me. I decide to do a project, but then I can’t find a pattern I like. I think that is why I have so much sock yarn piling up in my stash…
I decided to just do a basic sack myself. Obviously no special stitches, but it is easy, and that is about all my brain can handle right at this moment.
I grabbed some thick grey wool from my stash, and thought that would work well. Not necessarily a girly color, but something that will keep her warm, and the warmth is the important part. I grabbed the biggest needles I have (size 13) and went to town.
Now, keep in mind, this was done when my husband had taken the kids out for a bike ride, and unfortunately I haven’t found a good chunk of time to sit down and work on it some more, but I have some appointments coming up, and I am sure there will be plenty of waiting time for me to finish up the knitting I have planned.
I am still reading Homeward Bound, and I love it. It is really interesting to read about all the different ways mamas are trying to bring money into the family, how they are raising their children, choosing a new sort of feminism.
What are you working on this week?
