Good News: I finished my brother’s sweater.
Bad News: I wasn’t 100% happy with how the zipper bands and bottom hem came out. If you are making Avast, bind off the bands very, very loosely.
Good News: I blocked the Maja shawl and I love it! I wish that I had the extra skein or two of yarn it would have needed to be full size, but I can always make another.
Bad News: I found huge holes in my jaywalkers after I washed them. Note to self, do not wear handknit socks with handknit felted slippers. Time to reknit the heels.
Good News: It’s been over 46 degrees for three days in a row. This means I can take H outside for walks and exploration time.
Bad News: I found an eraser in his diaper. I’m pretty sure he ate it and didn’t just stick it down his pants, but you never know.
