I've been trying, very hard, to get things done. But it's really not happening. I'm making progress, but not much.
Starting with the Little Bunny Foo Foo Socks:
No, I didn't finish them. But I did finish one. And I couldn't wait to show you. I'm about 50% done with the second one. But again, one sock won't do anyone good unless you are a one legged person, which I am not.
I've also been working on the Cabled Tunic, but two or three rows really isn't working out too well. I'd have to do one 24 row repeat to see a noticable difference, you know? Cables are endless!
I made a gauge swatch out of the Lana Grossa Elastico yarn:
It's going to make a Diamond Sweater by Debbie Bliss for Scout. I've actually knit this sweater twice, (one in cream Debbie Bliss Wool/Cotton and another in some Sirdar Snuggly in a pale pink shade).
So that's it really. Not much to even blog about.
Other things to note in life:
I spoke with my therapist on Tuesday morning and we went over the DSM, (which is a book that psychiatrists/pyschologists/therapists use to follow the criteria, and diagnose, mental/behavioral disorders). Jem has 9 out of 9 under the ADD symptoms guidelines. He has 8 out of 9 under the ADHD symptoms. I've spoken with his therapist as well. We have a psychiatric evaluation on May 9th and then we can go from there. I know there is much controversy about diagnosing and medicating, but it seems it's our last option as this point. And I'm really hoping that it will help him.
We still have Scarlett, though I don't know for how long. We haven't found anyone who can take her, which makes things hard because I really don't want to take her to a shelter not knowing what will happen to her, you know?
I went the LYS, again, for the sale and bought two more skeins of cashmere. I'm thinking I, (might), try Eunny Jang's Anemoi Mittens. I'm not sure, mind you. But I might. They'd be awfully pretty in baby blue and white cashmere, don't you think?
Not much else to report really. I did finish Scout's letters for the bedroom, but I couldn't take a nice enough picture. Believe me when I say they look great! Jem says he wants his done too, so I will do his next week.
This weekend, you ask? Tomorrow, I'm going to have my nails done. (It's time for a fill.) I'm also going to catch up on my blog reading, since it's been about a week. I plan on making lasagna, (from scratch), and maybe something from The Cake Book. (If you are a baker or you just plain ♥ cake, get this book!) Sunday, I'm going to sand and paint Jem's dresser, (it's pink and white...he wants blue and white). Then Shawn and I are going to paint our bedroom.
Pictures to follow...
