Fronts (Almost) Done, Rascal One Year Old!

Last week I pondered whether I should rip out the top half of the back since the stitch patter was wrong, and the consensus (from Kathryn and Beth, thank you!) was that I should rip. That's what I will do. In the mean time, the right front is done and the left front is getting smaller every night. Hopefully next week I will have better pictures to show off.

Far more impress than my knitting, my son Henry played his first concert with the school Jazz band on Wednesday night. He has been playing low brass only since the beginning of this school year, and joined the band only two months ago. You can't hear him in this video, but he's the little kid sitting in the middle of the stage with the biggest horn.

Last but not least, our Rascal puppy is turning one year old today! When the rescue people picked him up off the street they estimated him to be eight to ten weeks old, and the vet gave him this birthday. We are happy to stick with it. A birthday bash is planned.

Good decision to rip back. You've worked so hard and it will be beautiful.

Congrats to your son and the Jazz band.

Happy Fiber Arts Friday!

Happy Birthday Rascal! Your project looks great, you'll have no regrets!

I don't like undoing my work, but sometimes it's the best decision.

I am so not a fan of tinking, so I feel for your particular dilemma. I'm sure this decision will turn out to be best, but it doesn't mean it can't hurt while you're ripping ... :)

And happy b'day Rascal! I also love how big the horn looks - he'll grow into it. :)

Happy fiber arts Friday!

Yay Henry. You must be such a proud momma. I played the French Horn in middle school, so this video totally brought me back.

I'm glad you are feeling good about your sweater.

Happy Birthday to Rascal.

And finally, thank you so much for the beef broth link. I will try it out for sure. :-)

Reward yourself appropriately for frogging ;-)

The band sounds great!
