I'm sad - but I'm ok. We'll go forward with another IVF cycle in Jan/Feb. Just wish this whole road to parenthood didn't have so many potholes.
On the good side of this (you've got to find the silver lining) with all of the bed rest and doctors appointments I've had in the past weeks, I had plenty of time to finish up my mother's Christmas sweater. This is a pre-blocking picture (it's soaking in Eucalan right now):
You'll notice that I didn't even try to be matchy on the front. And that right front was re-knit about 4 times (I needed to knit on Tuesday, but couldn't keep my head straight).
Pattern: Jabes from Simply Noro
Yarn; Transitions from Noro, Color 6
Needles: Size 9
Size: extra small
This is a super easy pattern, and at 3 sts to the inch, nice and fast (again with the nice and fast knits). It definitely needs a wash and block - as the yarn, while a wonderful mix of all things wonderful (55% wool, 7% cashmere, 7% alpaca, 7% camel, 7% kid mohair, 10% silk) is a bit rough. It also needs blocking to make that garter stitch band falls nicely. And, I'm going to wrap it and finish it mostly - and then make my mom put in her own zipper! Ha. I'm evil.
I have enough yarn to make this sweater for me also - which I think I'm going to cast on for once I finish my final Drive-thru sweater.
