mlj1954 project progress photo - baby layette

I started the sweater on New Years (it is supposed to be five hours, ha, it isn't. I finished knitting it on the 4th but didn't block or add the buttons, etc. until the 8th. On the 5th I went into the emergency room and had to have my gall bladder removed. Since I was so sick, they admitted me to the hospital and I was on IV antibiotics and morphine. My older sister took this picture. I don't know what she thought was funnier, my trying to knit a baby cap while I was on morphine or that I was trying to figure out the math to get it right. I kept ripping it out and ended up with a very messy ball.

Unfortunately, this is the only progress picture I have. She did take a picture of me but I told her that I would hurt her if she didn't delete it.


I hope this is enough to count.
I thought I had a picture of the blocked sweater except that it only shows my daughter and her boyfriend sitting in front of the fireplace.

It was ugly. It actually got to the point where I had to toss a bit of the yarn because it was so snarled . . . and you know the part where they say "when you join, be sure not to twist the stitches . . . " I had definite issues with not twisting the stitches.
