Anyway, here's what the Dayflower Lace cami looked like before the weekend (don't know why blogger rotated the picture and I'm too lazy to figure out how to fix it):
And here's what the Dayflower Lace cami looked like after the weekend:
Now, you may say, "Why, Loren, there's no discernable difference between the two. Does this mean that you didn't get any time in between baseball games to knit?" Au contraire, my friends. I took the version in the top picture to try on and it was waaaaaay too big. I'm knitting the medium size, which is 37 inches around, and my bust is 36 inches around. Gauge is accurate, but I think this sweater really needs a closer fit around the bust. (The small is 33 inches at the bust, which would be too tight for me.) So I ripped it back and increased 10 fewer stitches. I'm afraid to go try it on in case it's still too big. Since I have to get the kids from the bus stop in a little bit and rush through homework and dinner before yet another baseball game, I'm not sure I'll get to it today. Finding out it's still too big is something that can wait for a time when I can throw a good tantrum in privacy, so as not to reveal to my children that I can sometimes be not quite as mature as a mom should be. Shhh. Let's keep that our little secret, ok?
Because of all the rain, we must make up all missed baseball games before the playoffs start. Playoffs start next week! So we have games today, tomorrow, Thursday, and Friday. No games over Memorial Day weekend. I'm sure someone will pop a game in on Wednesday, just to even it out.
On a braggy note, the coach on the opposing team we played this weekend, the team that's undefeated and ran right over us, told Mr. T that he was very impressed with Sr. Jr.'s playing and pitching, and would be voting for him to be named to the Little League All-Star Team! (More baseball....)
