Wilbur and Retrofit

The last few weeks have been full of snow, knitting, and life. I’ve been doing a lot of knitting, which I guess isn’t really news. I did finish part of the package I’m putting together for the Hot Cocoa Swap. I have named him Wilbur, and he’s awesome. I really think the wings make the pig ^_^

I have also been knitting away on the garter stitch jacket. I’m about 10 inches into the first sleeve and it fits really well! I had a bit of drama trying to figure out the sleeves at first; I didn’t realize they were knit flat, then seamed. Now that I get it, I feel really silly. Pictures soon, I promise.

After much discussion, I have decided to knit Retrofit for my fiancé. I showed him lots of pictures, and we discussed colours for a long enough time that I think he’s sure about things. We’re going with Knit Picks Swish Worsted in Jade for the body, and Squirrel Heather for the arms. Check out my doctored photo 🙂

I named the blah buster buddy I knit for my pal sheep sheep and I cried when he went to his new home as I got attached while knitting him since it was threw my pre-op and surgery and after that I had knitted him.I had a pig we raised when I was in my twenties his name was waldo my son used to feed him fruit from our fruit trees and every day after school Skyler would grab a twig he favored and ride on waldo’s back our pig loved to run with Skyler on his back and he just loved him.Fond memories Hugs and Happy Birthday wishes Darcy
