Mondays are not my favorite. This Monday, coming off the high of being The Queen on Mother's day is especially crappy! It is rainy and cold (only in the 40's) I had a 3 year old visitor in my bed last night who's only mission was to stab me in the ribs every time I drifted off to sleep. When Mr. Fantastic left for work, I moved said 3 year old to the other side of bed was drifting off to dreamland, when son #1 woke me to let me know that son #2 is throwing up in the hallway.
Nice. The cherry on top is the 5 loads of laundry that I get to fold and put away......SWEET!
I need some Yarn love..........................here it is:
I am making the Herringbone Mesh Jacket in this yarn. Pattern can be found here I love the color, isn't it pretty? (oooh, I'm feeling better) Wait here is the money shot
I am having a nice time with it. I had a great time with the Baby Surprise Jacket. It took forever to dry in this weather. Here it is
I love making these, you can head on over to Schoolhousepress and purchase the pattern or even a DVD. I made this one on a size 6 needle, but I have made these jackets with different sized needles and yarn to make them bigger or smaller. I only seamed up one side of the jacket because this is going to be a store sample and the funky construction of the piece is a little confusing the first time you make it. Here is what it looks like open on one side
Cool Huh? I am going to disinfect the house now (don't be jealous!)
