Waiting to Feel the Love

I've made lots of progress on my Sunkist Cardi. Just have to finish the sleeve and it's done. Not sure yet if I love it or not. We'll see . . .

Since you heard from me last, I knit this:

It's the Anthropolgie-Inspired Capelet. I got side-tracked after seeing it on Ravelry and couldn't wait another second to make one. I knit on it like crazy, adding some length to the body to accommodate the boobage, and got it finished pretty quickly. Then I tried it on.

Not feeling the love. Yet. But I'm going to try to love it. Really. Tonight, I've ripped back the sleeves a bit so that I can knit them longer. They're too short. I think. It seems to me that this cropped little ditty needs either tiny little cap sleeves (which will call all kinds of unwanted attention to the jiggliest parts of my upper arms) or elbowish-length sleeves. Elbows, here I come. Stay tuned.

I opened the refrigerator door this afternoon, felt a little thud, and heard a little mewing sound. I hadn't seen her, but Emmie was laying inside the kitchen curtain, enjoying the sun, and I clunked the poor thing with the door. Look at the spot she found for herself.

Cuteness.

I think the capelet is cute too. And I'm with you on the elbow length sleeves.

Emmie Ming May is adorable. My little pug likes to sun himself in the morning on our deck. It's ok on the weekends when I can leave him out there for a while. Not so much on the weekdays when I'm in a hurry to get to work!

The sweater is pretty. I think you're right about the sleeves. Nice color for you.
Emmie's so cute!
XXXOOO, Mom

Emmie cracks me up! My 115 lb dog likes my bed. Any chance he gets, he sneaks onto the bed even though he's so hot, he still want to be on it! It's not as funny as Emmie, but I totally understand the "their spot" deal.

I love the caplet and the new cardi. Can't wait to see them finished!!! :)

Love how pets find those sunspots... Jackson is a sun-puddle-loving-pup! The capelet is awesome, and the cardi is great!! Yay!
