Got to work today on Multnomah. She’s growing!

The color is not one I’d normally choose (greys/blues) but for some reason I was drawn to making a deep colored shawl to match my grey jacket. This seems like it’s going to be a quick knit.

I am kind of stuck on the 5 hour sweater. I got to the point (like I mentioned last night) where I need to do the garter ridge edging on the bottom of the sweater. Though, I feel that the body is too short, so I’m just debating how much more to knit before finishing it off with that garter ridge edging. I will pull out the Baby Surprise Jacket that I knit for Mack and measure it up against this sweater. I just don’t want the sleeves to be longer than the sweater, which is what it is now actually. If you place the sleeves downwards, they are longer than the sweater. The BSJ is knit 0-3 month size as well. Should hopefully it’ll give me a good comparison for length.

Today we had my husband’s Step-Niece's 13th birthday party with all the step-family. My SIL came into town with her gang, and the kids were so happy to see each other. They don’t get to see each other often, so that was nice.

And the birthday cake was just “WOW”. I love what can be done with fondant.
It tasted fantastic too!


While at the birthday party they had the Habs game on. We unfortunately lost, but a couple of times during the game they showed a girl knitting behind the Penguins bench in front row. (You can see her hands knitting). I couldn’t believe it! I’m not the only knitter who knits at Habs game! There are others in other cities!!! I did some research to find out that it’s the “Knitting Lady” and she’s on Ravelry! You can learn more about her here & here.

Wow that is cool to find out about others knitting! Funny you see it on the TV.

Sweater is coming out good. I debated doing the patern a year ago for either Lex or Logan, but never got around to it. It's knitting up nicely.

I'd love to know what you're using for the Multnomah too. It's gorgeous!
