My youngest child, Mirabella, turned 2 today. I spent lots of today and yesterday making her a birthday sweater. Totally improvised, it is bottom up, raglan shaped sleeves, and uses some of my favorite tricks. Those tricks include EZ's fake seam, Techknitter's criss cross of stitches at the armhole, knit as you go i-cord, and an i-cord bind off. Hippo Birdy, Belly.

Today is a blocking day (among other tasks). I am blocking a newly finished Hitchhiker, a long ago finished Traveling Woman, and hat that needed a wash. I took the pompom off and will reattach it to the hat after all is done. I used Kookaburra on all 3 and Retayne on the Traveling Woman in hopes that it will stop bleeding on its second run at blocking.
