i've been recuperating with a lot of knitting, reading, and bunny petting. it's difficult to be stressed out during a gorgeous weekend in venice!
yep, that's the cuff of a sleeve! i've finished the body of my mrs darcy cardi, knit all in one piece up to the arm scythes because i. hate. seaming. (no, the minimalist cardi is still NOT sewn up.) i can do it, but i don't like it. due to my fragile already-stressed state right now, as seamless as possible is the way to go - the sleeves will be knit in the round up to the caps too.
i also went to ikea this weekend and bought mr b his very own pillow; he's been borrowing one from the couch (he likes to sit on it at the foot of the couch and watch tv with us; it also helps him gain foothold and jump up to sit with us). i covered it with a nice soft piece of (washable) fleece velcroed together on the bottom and he's enjoying trying to pull that off!
just because it's been a week, i'm going to post gratuitous pet photos. we all need a little cute sometimes, right?
(don't worry, cole's still with us - he just won't pose for me this morning!)
finally, before i sign off, i wanted to thank the lovely folk at craftster and lime & violet for featuring bella's mittens this week!
happy sunday 'yall!
