So...close...that it actually looks like a sweater!
Olivia (still blogless) and I are almost done with our sweaters. We just have to seam them together.
In fact, if we had worked on our sweaters instead of driving to Target to purchase a grill and have an impromptu barbeque last night...we may have been done already.
But those burgers, potato salad and chocolate chip cookies were worth it! Plus, I need to keep my energy levels up for all that seaming.
On a different note, do any of you believe in knitting superstitions?
I recently wanted to start a sweater for a friend's baby that is almost born. My friend is Jewish, and in her culture, it is bad luck to buy anything for a baby's room before the baby is born. My mom told me I should wait too, before starting.
However, I have heard contradictory stories that a baby cannot be born until a sweater is finished. And I'm not too superstitious, especially after looking at that list of superstitions. Oy vey. What is a girl to do?
What if I start knitting and put extra well wishes into each stitch? Or can I just start knitting a sweater but for no baby in mind?
I love babies, and would not want to unintentionally hurt one, or make a future parent feel I impacted their baby's health in a negative manner. In the meantime, I'll tell my friends to let me know when I can start making stuff, until then, I'm going to wait.
I would love your input, as I'm quite curious for the poll results.
