Take It Outside
I'm kinda sick of taking pictures on my bed, on the floor or just about anywhere in the apartment. So I took Cherry out to the lawn. As I was laying out the back of Cherry on the picnic table, my neighbour walked passed and saw me. So I smiled at her. After a few second, I saw her talking to her son and pointing her finger at my direction. Man! I bet she's talking about me. (That crazy woman is snapping pictures under this scorching 100 degrees heat...what 's she thinking?) Nosy neighbours! Ugh, who care what she thinks.
Jarrett is growing at a significant pace. For those that are still curious how Rowanspun DK feels next to the skin. Well in my opinion, it's not scratchy at all. I rubbed it on DH arm and asked him how he feels, surprisingly he said it's fine. So I guess, this yarn has passed the picky man's itch test.
I was going to start sewing the kimono dress. But after spending two hours cutting up all 15 pieces of patterns and fabrics, I felt so unmotivated and decided to make this instead. I found this tutorial from craftster and it was pretty easy to follow. The only problem I had was those stupid pleats. They drove me nuts I tell you. After 6 times of ironning and folding, fold and iron somemore its still a bit uneven. Can you tell?
