WIP Wednesday

I am working on one of the baby blankets using my Bubbles Baby Blanket pattern up at CPC. This pattern is one that will be in the Crochet Pattern a Day 2007 Calendar also. It makes a good stroller/car seat blanket. The Caron Simply Soft (pale blue and white) is working up nicely, super soft. I should be done tonight.

I am caught up on the Mystery Pattern CAL from CD. I still can't figure out what it is and it has me a bit perplexed. It uses Aunt Lydia's Denim "Quick Crochet" and is a chevron pattern that I had to sew into a tube. I don't get it at all, but the last part of the pattern will be put up on 8/20, so I'll know soon enough.

My Noho yarn from WEBS should be in sometime later this week. I ended up choosing black, but hate crocheting with black, but it's the color that I want to make it with and it will be able to be worn with a few different things.


This is what I want to make (yes, others have made it, and it's tested and approved, which is great in my book). Thanks Stacy for the great patterns;). And yes, I look exactly like that model-so it should be stunning, no? The pattern is in Tahki Crochet Spring 2006 Patterns, it's not a free pattern. I've linked to the first place that came up when I googled it so you can see the patterns in the book. I will probably make a few of the items, with yarn substitutions (of course).

Okay, off the crochet stuff and onto personal stuff-This next paragraph will contain "Too Much Information" for some and, if you only want the fiber stuff, stop reading here.

No Kids College today for Elena. I noticed the past few days her stomach seemed off, but she didn't say anything, so I let it go. Last nigh she woke up in the middle of the night and had to, well, go #2 (TMI, I know)-she never does this (get up in the middle of the night. She woke up around 7 and went several more times this AM-kinda running into the bathroom. Her stomach isn't upset, but I think she has a little bug-she usually never has stomach problems. She asked me if she caught them from me (no, she didn't), but is okay, just perplexed by what is going on. The class she's in this week has a male teacher and the bathroom is up two flights of stairs and I was worried 1) She would be embarrassed asking a male teacher about the bathroom (she usually avoids all public toilets anyway) and 2) she would wait til last minute and have a little trouble getting the teacher to stop class to take her up two slights of stairs to the bathroom-it might have taken too long and 3) If it gets worse, I want to make sure she's not scared or anything. She freaks over stomach things and I just wanna make sure it's okay. I worry whenever she doesn't feel well and frankly, the break from the driving back and forth is kind of welcome-not that I am happy she's not feeling good, but figure a day of chilling never hurt anyone. Edited: Okay, perhaps we aren't chilling. She just ran by and, with a quiver in her voiced announced "I hate pooping like this, will it ever stop?". Followed by "This is the first time in my whole life I ever had this-it's not a good thing". Poor baby.

I love that pattern! I think it will look fantastic in black :)

I hope Elena feels better. Stomach bugs are no fun!!

Kari said...

awwww poor little thing
I hope she gets to feeling better soon.

Brandy said...

Awww poor thing. I hope she is feeling better soon.

BTW I love that sweater. Did you post where the pattern is or am I just having a blonde moment. Have a great day!!

Deneen said...

Sorry, I linked the pattern book now. It's the Spring Crochet Collection. Apparently, I had the blonde moment.

Ohh, poor baby--want my home remedy? It's carob powder mixed with applesauce--mix 1/4 cup carob powder with 1/2 cup applesauce, and ask her to eat as much as she can--it doesn't taste bad, but the texture is a little wierd. It really works. Carob binds, and also removes toxins as it moves through your body.

Aw, poor kiddo. I hope she's feeling better soon.

I love that top--one of these days I will break down and buy that book.

Jaye said...

Poor little peanut! Seems like a good day to hang out on the couch with Harry Potter, a favorite blankie, and mom.

Feel better, Elena!

Kathy said...

Ohhh, poor baby. I hope she feels better soon, I agree it's no fun being rumbly in the tummy. Hugs to you both, and make sure to drink lots of water; it's hot again and that could be part of it.

Jewels said...

Oh I hope that little Elena is feeling better by tomorrow.
That top you're making is mucho georgeous!! This book looks like a must have. The crochet shawl pictured in mauvey-pink looks really pretty too. Love the NOHO yarn cotton you ordered too!

Priscilla said...

Poor little one. As Mom always said "this to shall pass".

Kelly said...

I sure hope that she is feeling better now! Poor thing.
