After the tortured bout of overthinking I went through earlier in the month, I feel really good about how just a few days out from Alice’s birthday everything has come together really nicely. Two of the suggestions I got that day have resulted in two of the loveliest knits I’ve had the pleasure of working on.
Early this morning I finished the hem on her Helena cardigan. I do so love a pretty picot hem!
This project has had a dream run. It’s all flowed beautifully from start to near-finish. Now I just have to get through the knitted on band and tie.
Meanwhile, Elijah is spending a lot of time like this, looking out the window asking ‘Is it Alice’s birthday yet?’
Soon, little guy, soon. But in the meantime, he needs to go and hide in the bedroom this morning because Alice is coming over to play while her mum runs some errands. I need to keep them apart for a few days more!
