I'm a February Lady
I put the sweater on this morning and I'm glad I decided to wait on buttons (I made room for three), and instead used my shawl pin and I think I'm going to leave it buttonless for a while. Shawl pins give a lot of versatility. I love mine. I can move the pin down to the tummy area if I'm feeling a little sensitive about the remaining post baby pouch.
The best moment came at the end of breakfast at a local restaurant today, when we were getting ready to leave, a woman walking by with her toddler stopped me and said 'Nice February Lady!' Boy that made my day. I love the knitting world.
Now I have to decide if I'm going to make the original February sweater from EZ's Knitter's Almanac for Miss Coco. I have some yarn... we'll see what happens :)
I really like the fit of the sweater so far, but I am glad to be done with the knitting. There are so many varied memories knit into this one, the excitement of the move, the frustrations of living in a hotel, the struggles of getting settled, the joy of feeling at home in a new place. I think this means a new chapter is beginning. Glad to be closing this February. Hello spring, are you out there somewhere?
