Tuesday, September 4th

The Shaker Baby Sweater is completed. I need to weave in the loose ends and it's done. Now I need to drop it off at the shop. The other night we went to the Old Spaghetti Factory for dinner. We sat across from faux stone carving of two peacocks. I kept looking at the tail of the one and thinking, that would be a great lace pattern. I suppose I could look and see if there is a lace pattern out there already instead of trying to re-invent the wheel.

I'm a dumbass, no big surprise there. The Youngest has been knitting on a lace shirt for about 2-3 month’s now. She had divided for the front and I told her the wrong information. We had her try it on, it was too small. So I've taken it to be re-knit. I've added more stitches for a better fit. I've had it for four days now, she's already asking is it done yet. No, but I can give it back to you, so you can finish it...

It was a quiet weekend. We was going to go star gazing Sunday night. But the moon rose about the time we was ready to leave. No point in going, the light would be too bright. So we stayed home and I knitted.

Grilltech did his second sleep study. (He stops breathing when he sleeps, so they're going to fix the problem.) He said he did feel better, so that's a bonus. He also bottled the Frozen Bunny Beer on Sunday. Moved the Peach Mead, into another carboy. He's thinking the mead is about ready to be bottled. I'm thinking, it could wait another two weeks. Something about bottle bombs make me a bit nervous.

Have you ever seen 13th Warrior? My very favorite line about Mead is in that movie...

Yeah...I hate being the source of all knitting knowledge for anyone...I can screw up a rookie so much quicker than I can screw up myself...

I firmly believe in helping people learn to knit not knitting for them...

Sleep apnea is not that much fun... It is very worrisome when you or someone you know is suffering from it.

The Shaker baby sweater is wonderful! So is the yarn you used. I'm looking forward to the pattern, even though I don't have any kids around to knit for (sob!)

I love the sweater. What yarn did you use?

RYC, we have had some storms the last 10 days or so. The Friday before Labor Day a tree fell in our neighborhood and nearly crushed a car.
Hope Grilltech gets the sleep help he needs. Scary stuff not breathing when you are sleeping.
Have a good weekend.
And the sweater is very nice.
