August 29 of 31

Today I got some stuff done around the house, did a LOT of laundry (it really never ends) and cleaned up my office. I can now see the floor in there! The reason I couldn't? There was a LOT of yarn in my office from a recent order I placed. More about that as soon as my shopping cart software for my website upgrade is working (I'm hoping tomorrow!) Almost all the kinks are worked out!

Here is progress on Sophia. I am loving it. I can't wait to see how it turns out. It's definitely a long knit. Takes me a while to get through 1 row. (Almost 200 stitches on one row). At least in 4 rows I get to do the first decrease row to start shaping!

Here is a close-up of the pattern! I am just in love with it. And the color too - a dark fuschia, it's going to look great. I hope it's done by the winter!

My clicker for my house alarm (Yes no need to punch in the alarm code anymore!) I have a "Stay" button (man standing in house), "Away" button, (man walking away from house), and unlock button. The panic button was disarmed because it accidently went off once in Jamie's pocket and sent the police. Not a good thing. Anyhow, as you can see, the part that is supposed to go on your key ring broke. I have a dilema. Should I knit it a cozy to then hang on my keychain? Otherwise, it won't stay on my keychain..... Debating it.... we'll see!

Tonight I went to the NDG Knitting Meet-up. It was sooo good to get out of the house. Sean woke up last night at 2:45 am sick. Runny nose, congested, slight fever, coughing. I am hoping he's cutting a tooth. (It would be about time!) And now, getting home from an awesome night out with my knitting friends, my throat is killing me. It hurst to swallow. I hope I am not getting sick. I'm hoping it's just because I talked too much tonight (LOL). I am going to go to sleep, and see how I feel in the morning. (So happy I have someone coming to clean my house tomorrow!) YEY! Because I'm surely not feeling too great right now.

The same thing happened to me with my key chain thingy. I put the ring back through it, then took a lighter and melted the plastic to close the part that broke. It worked for me. The sweater is such a pretty colour and looking great! Sean is such a cutie!

I hope you feel better! Maybe you're cutting a tooth! (LOL)
I love, love, love the progress on your sweater, the back of that sweater is absolutely stunning. I think I'm going to have to put that on my list of things to knit....would it be number 10000000 or 10000001? :)
