good bye, baby monster

good bye EmEm, everything thing I've ever knit, has a piece of you woven into it. I'll miss you.

an entrelac spring

Pattern: my own, similar to this one
Needles: US 9 bamboo
Yarn: Patons SWS, Soy Wool Stripes, (the yarn was a present from the family secret santa)
Notions: Bamboo Circular handles from G-Street
Notes: The colors on these photos are pretty accurate. I followed the pattern out of an old knitting guide, but there's a great Entrelac tutorial in the spring Interweave Knits written by Eunny Jang
the other side!I started this bag, the day that EmEm was diagnosed with cancer. It'll be 5 weeks tomorrow.

entrelac for spring

The weather this past week has been quite wonderful. I've spent a bit of time sitting out on the front lawn with EmEm, she can't walk far but she loves the sunshine. So when she's tired I spread out a blanket and we sit, and sometimes I knitI'm making a springy version of this bag that I made a couple of years ago.
EmEm suffers the indignity of having to wear the knitting, and it's not even clothes...
