My cousin Jenn came over to my parents house to see Sean. And to give me a few pointers with seaming. Here is my mess before starting to seam, and after blocking it overnight.
I love how the seam is so beautiful.... it's my first seam ever, with a little help from Jenn.
By the time I was leaving my parents house to go home this evening, I had finished seaming the inside of the pocket and seamed both sleeves together, so really, it went further than what you see above, but I didn't get a chance to photograph it yet. Also, the part for the button was knitted on, (here you just see the white knitted on the blue for the button holes, which are there, but after I knitted the extra part on the sleeve for the placket for the buttons to go on. A new progress report tomorrow - when hopefully i'll seam up the sides of the sweater, sew on the buttons, weave in the ends, and have a finished sweater! That would be fantastic! I am sure I can do it tomorrow!
This evening my sister was playing around with her laptop with Sean in her lap, and we decided to take some cute photos of Sean on the laptop. I'm going to email my parents in Jamaica from Sean's hotmail account (yes, I'm a geek Sean has a hotmail account - and a facebook account too!) and write a letter to his grandparents and I'll send this photo over to them. I'm sure they miss Sean, and would love to see him in pictures!
This above photo is for the Tattoo Meme - which I saw on Cynthia's blog. My Canadian Maple Leaf is a drawing straight off my passport, which I got done in April of 2002 while in London, England. It ironically DID NOT stretch while I was pregnant. This picture was taken in 2002, just after I got home from Europe. (I no longer wear my class ring, but now seeing it makes me miss it dearly!)
I want to get 2 more small tattoos. One is of cherries, I love cherries. I'm jealous of Cynthia's cherries tattoos. Also - I'd like to get a ball of yarn with 2 knitting needles sticking through the ball of yarn. Now that I'm not pregnant anymore, maybe I'll treat myself for my birthday! I have connections at one local tattoo place, Jamie plays baseball with the owner, so that wouldn't be a problem at all - to get good service! However, it would be f*ing cool to get a tattoo from like Miami Ink or Inked. But I won't be in Miami or Vegas anytime soon. So I guess I'll go local.
