I finished the baby sweater last night in time to unpick the ribbed cuff on the first sleeve and reknit it. The pattern says to knit the cuffs on size six (the rest of the sweater is on size nines), but I just felt like the cuff was too small so I reknit it on size nines. Even if it's a little loose, it'll be better than too tight. I know for a fact that I had to cut the elastic in every outfit my youngest daughter wore for the first year of her life. (She's quite svelte now by the way.) I even had time to give it a little soak in lavender scented Eucalan. This picture isn't very good but I took it around midnight last night in case I didn't remember to do it this morning. You can see the color better on my ravelry project page.
In other knitting news, Mere, my oldest, is trying her hand at a pair of fair isle mittens and S is learning how to cable and read from a chart. I thought I knew how to read a chart, even though I've never used one, but it turns out I didn't. Thankfully Mere set me straight after a conversation about it this afternoon. And now S will have to start over on her hat when she gets home from work. Luckily she's only five rows in and it's bulky weight so it shouldn't be too much of a problem.
Now I'm going to go make and eat pancakes for dinner. Comfort food. Sounds good, doesn't it?
