Here is the finished Dulaan sweater on Willow - I had to roll up the sleeves to fit her, but other than that it fits. The neckline was a little tight on her - it wasn't as stretchy as I hoped, despite the fact that I bound off in rib. I also think my baby has a big head, so that may have something to do with it as well!
See that drawing in the background? The one with the big head? That's Andrew - so I guess she comes by it naturally :)
Uh, Mom...? Remember how you told me to use dishwasher detergent to get the Sesame Chicken stains out of Willow's dancing outfit? This is what happened:
I don't know about all dishwasher detergents, but mine has bleach in it. Willow was quite distraught at first - okay, it was kind of funny - but I told her she was going to get a new outfit soon because this one was a bit tight on her.
And I wanted to show what I did to Willow's hair tonight:
It's finally long enough to french braid! Hair is very fine so I think I would need some sticky gel or hairspray to have it stay in place if I were so inclined... but I love playing with her hair. Really - when I was a little girl my barbies were always sans clothing because all I ever cared about was doing their hair.
Day 22: All baking powder is baking soda and cornstarch (and some preservatives) mixed together.
I'm still not entirely clear on why we have baking soda and baking powder and why recipes call specifically one or the other and they are not interchangeable, though.
And the anniversary I mentioned in the title? Today is the 10th anniversary of the day Andrew and I met in Katsutadai, Japan - at MIL The Language Center, where we both taught English.
