Knitting is good to me today :)

The soaker saga continues. I forgot to blog about the fate of the soaker.  Suffice it to say it fit Natalie, my sturdy 4/5 Natalie, when it should have been a size 12 months. Yeah. Straight to the frog pond it went, and was reborn using this pattern. Or at least, the pattern was a guideline since I didn’t read it correctly.

Did you notice that this pattern is knit in the round? On DOUBLE POINTED NEEDLES?! Oh yeah baby. I am the new knitting hotness! (this pic was taken after it switches to straights)

That’s called the Kitchener Stitch, punk!!! 🙂

I spent the afternoon knitting this up on my balcony, sitting in my fabulous orange chair

I drank tea out of my new teapot set (gotta love the thrift store!)

And enjoyed the view. The ducks are the resident pets, and will come when Natalie calls them. Cute!

Wanna see my little garden? This is my windowbox planter, with tiny little pots of lavendar hanging from the bottom (just planted this morning)

And look! The first sign of life from Natalie’s butterfly garden:

I’m off to tackle an icord for the soaker drawstring, and weave in the ends. Will share the final product tomorrow! 🙂
