MERCY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do you want the good news or the bad news first. I am so excited about the good news so I will tell you that first. I learned how to do 3 needle bind off :) Yeah. It wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be.
Until DUNT,DUNT ,DUNT ,DUN, I do have an excuse I was distracted. It was so easy I wasn't paying attention. All of a sudden I was done. I tried on my sweater and here is the BAD news.
I bound off the sweater with the inside and outside facing together, Then I forgot to bind off with the outside facing so that my sweater wouldn't look like I was wearing it inside out. I did this 2 days ago and I still haven't accepted the challenge of frogging it because I am afraid of many dropped stitches. This yarn is Bernat Soft Boucle and doesn't frog well. Oh and because I was fair Isle knitting I stranded the stitches a little tight. I will need to add 2 inches in the side seam. I have put this project in time out for now. Over all by the time I finish this project I will learn some valuable information and the next time I knit a sweater I will turn the TV off when appropriate so that I am not distracted. Another comforting fact. I am sure I am not the only one that has done this. Happy knitting.

This is a picture of the shark Austin designed. He drew a picture of the shark and I cut it out, put it on paper, sewed it together, and Austin stuffed it. It was more fun than build a bear workshop. He loves it because he helped create it. I plan on making more because it is fun to see how it will turn out.

These are pictures of my sisters at our birthday party. Can you guess which one is me? The picture on the top going from left to right is Cindy, Caroline, and me (Carrie). The one on the bottom is Cindy and Me. We are twins. As you can see we got each other the same Birthday card. Are we twins or what. We even wrote some of the same things in the card. I opened the card and was immediately confused. I thought I opened the card I gave my sister. My sister Caroline is amazing. She made her daughter's prom dress this past spring. My sister Cindy makes amazing cakes. We are all crafty in our own way. I think we get it from our amazing Mother.
