Thanks to those who gave me the here-here on my last post. It helps to know that I'm just part of a special group. And not an "I rode the short bus" kind of special! Well I'm still working on the sleeves for baby Ashe's cardigan. He's due Sept.21 so, like Craig says, I've got time. But can I be honest....I'm afraid to be done with the knitting because I'm terrified of blocking and sewing it up. I'm not one to back down from a challenge and I'll face up to it bravely when it comes, but I'm TERRIFIED. How I quiver at the thought of seaming the sleeves. But alas, it will be done. All things were new to me at one time. It can't possibly be harder than intubating a two year old. If it is, I'll probably cry. I'll do it, but I'll cry. It won't be pretty....I get all blotchy when I cry.

You can do it!! I have faith in you!! It scares me quite frankly and I am glad I won't be there when you do it, b/c I would have to close my eyes. More rain today, so I guess I will be knitting. Have a great day!

Seaming is not as hard as it seems. (Sorry, I couldn't resist that one.) Do you have Nancie Wiseman's Finishing Techniques? It's indispensable for seaming, as well as other things. Just get yourself settled, get a cup of tea, a good light and go slowly. Intubating a two year old is way harder. And you have multiple chances with the seams, unlike the two year old.
