thankyou!

Deniasha
has been kind enough to tag me for this award
and I have to tag at least four others who then have to link back here - and so on - you all know the drill.
I almost always end up nominating the same people -and they know who they are - so I've decided to spread the joy a little further this time:
Caity
April
Lisette
Jejeune
you may all consider yourselves awarded

now I know this sort of pales into insignificance when set against the goings on over in the land of the free and the home of the brave

but the blogosphere has to keep on chugging along even when momentous things are busy being momentous
so here's the current knitting:
vintage baby cardi pattern found among BJC's late mother's gear and dragged home in triumph from Tassie
needles - 3mm Kp Options and dpns
yarn - 1 ball of Patons Big Baby 4 ply [ fingering ]
modifications:
the pattern was already a top down but written for knitting on straights and in separate pieces below the yoke so I've just converted it to more modern practice, to whit: back and fronts in one piece and sleeves in the round.
I've left off the lace pattern below the yoke as well ... to make it a little more boyish in keeping with the colour.

there has been quilty stuff happening as well but I'll save that for another day

so sorry we didn't catch up when you were here - but next time (of maybe over Christmas if I can convince husby to get to Bendi...)
Glad you had a fun time though!

Frankly, I find blog thingies to be much more interesting that elections. Elections take too long and I get tired. Then I wake up and don't know who is president...

Congrats on the award and on that lovely jacket! (and, for the record, I am now clear on who is our Head Of State. It just took me a while to wake up enough to catch on. :)

Thank you for my award! And my what a time you've been having of late! Hope you're feeling rested and that David is settling back into his familiar routines. Bugger about it being so hard to get away, though :/

Love the little cardy, very cute :)
