After All The Fireworks Are Over

Now, doesn't that sound like the title of a country music song? We didn't get the chance to see any fireworks this Independence Day. Personally, I think Willow is still a little young for it and would be terrified of the noise up close. She fell asleep by 7:30pm last night, so in the end the point was moot.

I started a new knitting project and I didn't even have to buy new yarn for it! It is the 'Sweetness' pullover pattern from the Spring 2003 issue of Knitty. Incidentally, that was the same issue that 'Sitcom Chic' was from. I'm knitting it up in some aqua Lion Brand Homespun and it is soooo soft. I had originally bought this yarn for a baby blanket 2+ years ago... um, yeah... said baby ended up getting a different present. The yarn is knitting up in some subtle beige and light lavender stripes and is going to look so cool when finished. I'm altering the pattern a bit as well - changed it to 3/4 length sleeves and making the sweater into more of a A-line to accomodate my wide hips. So far I have finished both sleeves and have about 5" completed on the body - I'll take some pics later this week and show everyone what it looks like.

You are right, it does sound like the title to a sad country song! I've started my pink hat (just like Willows!), but I don't know if the yarn is going to make it till the end!

Too bad about Little Willow and the fireworks... too bad you couldn't find all the little ones that they have in Japan. Now those would be fun! Especially the ones that are slow, sparkle and end up in a blob of molten whatever. Great for 3 year olds, I'm sure!

Hopefully Willow will be awake for the fireworks in Honeymoon Bay [anyhow there are lots of us quite willing to keep her awake!!!]
