Sins and Needles

"With a new cosmopolitan, less insular generation it might again grow into a sincere expression of a man loving to create with his own hand, or shall we rather say-- woman, emancipated, finally creates with her own genius." --The Sacred History of Knitting, by Heinz Edgar Kiewe (1971).

DNA Along

It starts September 5th! I don't know what yarn I'll use, but I'm making this for my Mom for Christmas.

I haven't updated in a while because things have been really hectic. I started a top-down raglan from the pattern on, and it's coming out really cute. I'm about 1/2 done. I did special shaping on the bust so it's more fitted (I did decreases like a seamstress would make darts). I also cinched in the waist, because I still have a small waist and I want to show it off while I can!!

I also got a new job. I'm doing production work for a typesetting company. The pay is not-so-great, but it's a job.

ALSO! I brought home a little girl named Robin to foster today. She's all black and has huge bat ears. She has been at the shelter for about a year, and it is taking her forever to overcome her shyness. Actually, she's scared out of her mind. She would never leave her cage at the shelter, even though we want her to (70% of the cats free-roam at the shelter I volunteer at). So, she's in my bathroom now, still in the carrier I brought her home in.

She's really, really scared right now. My three cats are also freaked out. I really hope everyone relaxes soon. Robin really needs to overcome her scaredness, but it's going to take a lot of work.
