World Cup Knitting FINISHED!!

Whoo hoo, Gillian's World Cup Knitting sweater is finished!

Last night at Knit Wit Night I finished sewing on the second button band reinforcement, sewed the buttonholes (I just cut a slit in the ribbon and then whip stitched around the edges), and sewed on three more buttons.

She's quite happy with it, which is a relief--she's so funny about clothes!

I think she was quite happy that it's finished. :-) Both kids had just finished some ice cream, and so, as always, Ryan is wearing just a bit of it.

I'm going to have to figure out what I'm going to make for Ryan so that I can make a sweater for him before the weather turns cold. Hard to imagine on a day like today when it's been in the low 90s with 55% humidity, but it'll be a small sweater and should go quickly. I'm going to make it a pullover since he's not as good with buttons as she is. Yet. I actually had to steal back the buttons for Gillian's sweater a few times, but when it comes to buttoning up a sweater I think we'll all just be happier with a pullover.

In other WIPs (Works in Progress) news, I've finished both legs of the doll and I'm about half-way finished with the torso/body. Yesterday at Knit Wit Night I finished two cupcakes (one for each child) although I still have to figure out a way to mark them so as to avoid fights. Well, lessen the fights, anyway. I haven't touched my blue socks for a few days, but I'll get back to them.

I'm still trying to decide what I'm going to take to Idaho to work on. It needs to be something small and portable, but not so quick to do that I'll finish it while we're gone--then I'd be project-less! Ack!
