Happy Emma

Voila, KiddieKami the sequel.

Once again I resized Bonne Marie's Chickami and I'm really happy with it.  It's a tad big so she can wear it this summer and next.  Nothing goes as fast as knitting something sleeveless for your kid.  The yarn is Needful Yarn's Kelly in a nifty strippey blue.  I have enough left to knit 5 more of these things--so it was only a minor stash buster.

Now I'm back to the sleeves on Eris


Loafing

I haven't had an evening like this since I moved.  The kids were in bed, I left the dishes in the sink, grabbed a beer and a new project and plonked myself down in front of the tv and got to it.

A kiddiekami and Clueless--the perfect combination.  This is classic no-brainer knitting.  I figured out the sizing for the body (I'll get to the armhole shaping when I need to), casted on and away I went.  Here's my progress so far:

Kiddiekami

I'm using reclaimed yarn from the abandoned Grace.  I think it's called Kelly by King. 

Today I'm supposed to be cleaning off my desk so I can take the next few days off.  Except I want to start my time off today.  I'm not sure why I'm so anxious to be on holiday since the first task is to finish painting the dining and living room.  We did one wall in the dining room so we could put up our wall unit and then just let it slide.  It's particularly bad because another wall is partially painted (well, it's the wall we used to get the rest of the paint off the roller before we washed them).  It's got to be done.  Right after I drink my tea and knit a bit more.
