Zig Zagging in just a minute... before we get to that, a brief progress report.
I took a little break from my Buttercup blanket... I got a little bored with it. I'm more motivated now that little Bridget has arrived. I told you she'd get here before I could finish. My friend lives in another state, so I've only seen pictures, and she's a cutie.
Here's my progress so far...
5 out of 11 rows (plus the border)
So, in the meantime, I've been working on my zig zag projects. I had this idea of making a little Spring sweater. It is already super warm here, so I don't know why I thought about a sweater, but I did. I've never actually crocheted anything like this, so it was pretty crazy to just decide to wing it like I did, but I did. It's all one piece... it looked like a big plus sign with a hole in the middle before I seamed up the sides. I finished it up this weekend and I'm just now getting around to taking pictures of it. My floor looks terrible, but I swear I did sweep it. I need to pressure wash the whole freaking house. Kids, I tell you.
It's just a funky little cropped sweater. The neck, which I wanted to be big, was bigger than practical so I added the buttons on there to close it up a little. Little kids don't need the sexy off-shoulder look going on, in my opinion.
Want to see it modeled? Alrighty...
Aw, Zoe, you're so cute. Let's get a little sassy now...
That's without her modelling coach. We're improving.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I have swept again since then. Look, I'm just happy you can see the floor at all. It's a real challenge for us. You're lucky we're expecting company any day now and I've been putting forth extra effort. I'm beyond caring anymore, though. My house is a nonstop wreck. There... I admitted it. =) My name is Jennifer and I'm a slob, or at least everyone around me is and I chose to spend my time doing anything but picking up after them most of the time.
I want to just make a cute little skirt to go with it out of the zig zag fabric. Probably a paper bag waist. Sadly, I'm getting a little bored with this now. Hopefully I can recover so I can make a third outfit before Easter. I'm pretty sure I will... Bill's aunt sent me a message that they should be here tomorrow. She said she's ready to be able to see out of her back window of her car and hopes I have room for some boxes. You know what's in those boxes?
Oh, just wait. ;)
