Stitching Status: Never Enough Time

I’ve had a hectic few days and instead I thought I’d have a long week of knitting solitude to get my mom’s sweater finished. Ugh. Instead I’ve been back and forth to the vet with little Jellybean trying to figure out why she is constantly dragging her butt. It’s always hard to figure out the problem when you’ve only had a dog for a few months and don’t know their normal behavior as well. I went through the same thing after we got Cher and cleared it all up but it just takes time. Add to the fact that my husband was on travel for a week so I had to scramble to get to vet visits, get work finished, walk the dogs and then feed them and myself! By the time I did get to sit down I was simply too tired to knit. Fortunately, I’m just a few rows from finishing the front and back pieces of this sweater. Next is the sleeves and then the hard part – joining with the contrasting color yarn. I’m nervous and excited at the same time to finish it. I really think my Mom is going to love it. My goal is to have it all wrapped up by Sunday/Monday. Keep your fingers crossed please.
I also haven’t taken photos of most of my little knits I just finished. I’m slacking all around. But here’s a picture of Cher in a NY Giants hat for the polar vortex coming our way. This is a small and it fits her perfectly…Jelly’s hat is just a little on the big side but will do because when the wind blows it blows her and she needs an extra layer of protection. Things I thought I’d never discuss with my husband: needing to buy a chihuahua a snow suit. That also happened this weekend.

So I haven’t been as productive as I had hoped. Have you been? Or is the holiday crunch getting to you to?

  1. ‘Tis the season! I broke my arm before the vest I’m making for my son was finished… Cranked up the pain meds and seamed the sides mostly left-handed, then got a little braver and finished the armhole ribbing. Nevermore! I think you are wise to pace yourself!

    Here’s hoping your Jellybean is feeling good again soon. Can’t wait to see the photos of your mom’s sweater. That pattern is definitely on my to-do list.

    1. Definitely pace yourself! Don’t make the injury take longer to heal by pushing it too much.

    1. Dressing them up is clearly a source of entertainment but they let me do it and get belly rubs in return.

  2. Cher is so cute in her Giants hat!! Lol! Hope you get Jellybean’s situation figured out soon. Sending good vibes!

    1. I think that because Jellybean doesn’t have a lot of hair she’s getting irritated in the cold weather. Lots of skin balm and keeping her warm and cozy. She’s getting it together.
