In knitting news, I have been shirking my vow to knit two rows per day on the aran. I am still working on the second sock. I have been commissioned to make a baby sweater for a friend. I am making a child's chemo cap, which is horribly depressing.

But I want to push everything aside and start on this immediately.


I am in love with that sweater.

Shirking is BAD.

So is my perception. I didn't notice the title of your post at first, and I didn't even notice the owls. I just thought, wow, buttons that do nothing but look nice. I didn't know they were watching me.

Two days ago, you told me about this Sis B post:

I hope that folks find out how rewarding it is to volunteer and to make positive change in the world, and continue to do it.

You're doing it.

I am making a child's chemo cap, which is horribly depressing.

But the child may be a little less depressed knowing that someone - you - went to the trouble of making that cap for them.

The owls can wait for you, even if you can't wait for them ...

Yes, I didn't need Obama to get me to volunteer; I've been charity knitting for two years now, several hours per week. And hopefully will continue doing it, if it's not made illegal.

That is a really cute sweater. I see several variations on it. Do you think you could make a little preemie cap with that design, or maybe little sweaters for them, in colors that complement yellow owl eyes? That pattern is just unbelievably cute.

Cute sweater....and you can keep an eye or two on your hubby when you wear it. Heh.

that is cute, and I actually think little girls sweaters would be adorable

That's possibly the cutest sweater ever.
