FEFI Update

Here's my progress on Fairly Easy Fair Isle (FEFI), as of last night. I ended up making a bunch of mistakes because Ruby had been a giant grump all day and her unruly behaviour extended throughout the night. But, everything (including a dropped stitch, which I almost never do!) has been fixed and I think she's coming along nicely. The colourwork has been a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to taking on more complex fair isle, even though I'm not sure I like the look of most fair isle patterns.

I'm not going to say much about the election -- I'm not happy that Stephen Harper is our new Prime Minister, but I am happy that Paul Martin never will be again. I do think it's a very Canadian thing that we all collectively decided to not make a decision at all by choosing one of the most splintered minority governments in history. Oh well, I'm sure we'll all be back at the polls before Ruby's third birthday.

the sweater looks great! really nice color choice, and so impressive that you can concentrate with a child around.

Oh, I don't knit when Ruby's actually awake. That's just asking for trouble. But I do tend to get distracted if I'm sleep deprived or if she continually wakes up during my evening knitting time. What a little trouble maker!

I can't wait to see this in person!

(Oops, no pressure or anything.)
