Sad to See It End.

Have you ever knit a project and loved knitting it so much, or the yarn was so perfect, you were sad to finish it? Thats how Im feeling about a baby dress Ive been knitting. I sort of improvised the pattern, I did the top like the Monarch Butterfly Cardigan, then joined and worked in the round and knit it longer to make a dress. Im using Madelinetosh DK in Esoteric and its just SO beautiful. The way the colors move from being over-saturated to softer hues, and its so smooshy…

Im sad to see it end. I will probably finish it tonight and Im already planing out another project with some of the other Madelinetosh DK I have in the stash.

Maybe another baby dress is in order. I just don’t have many baby girls to knit for. This one is a surprise gift for one of my husband’s good friend’d daughter. It should be about a size 2T once blocked. I do have a vest on the needles for my sister’s little guy that I need to work on, and another Baby Kina that my husband’s cousin asked me to knit up for a friend of hers. So I have plenty to work on, I just can’t not be knitting the Madelinetosh right now. I’m addicted.

About zenren

I am in my mid-thirties, and blissfully married to a guy named Dave with whom I have a 15 year old daughter named Anela, and she is my world. I'm the RN Clinical Nurse Manager of a Transitional Care Unit where I work extremely hard to make my nurses and my patients happy. I knit shawls, and hats, and baby sweaters. I obsessively use Burt's Bees lip balm. I love spending weekends on our little slice of lake in northern Minnesota, and laying in the grass near the bonfire on a cool spring night with the kiddo watching for shooting stars while eating gooey s'mores with sticky fingers. I enjoy wrapping up in over-sized, snuggly warm sweaters in the autumn and going for walks with the smell of fallen leaves and trees blazing with color. I read a lot of self-help books. I frequently do not answer my cell phone. My husband adores me because of my quirks, not in spite of them, and I do my best to appreciate that. Im learning to meditate, and have a weakness for a good cup of tea. My nephew is adoreable, and brings me so much joy. I knit to wind down, stay sane, and create beautiful things.
