Picking Up Stitches Tip & Preggo Pic

Morning, Sunshines!  I realized that there’s been so much to blog about over that past 2 weeks, that the tips I had planned to post fell by the waste-side.  I’ve got a busy day of catching-up on work and catching-up with Dave and some friends to see a couple of SXSW shows.  Sooo, I’ll make this one a quick one taken right from the pages of Knit Aid:
Knit RX: Divide and Conquer
To make sure that picked-up stitches along a curved neck or shoulder line are distributed evenly, divide the area into quarters and mark each section with a pin.  Then, pick-up 1/4 of the desired stitches in each section and you’ll be smooth sailin’!
I also want to take a moment to thank all of you who’ve bought copies of the book (extra mushy thanks to those who’ve given it positive reviews!)  I just looked on Amazon and your support is evident.  I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that.  

Now, for no other reason than to document proof to my daughter that pregnancy didn’t stop me from rockin’ it, here’s a shot of me and my friend Noelle (she’s due the same week as I am) at yesterday’s Hollywood Gossip show on South Congress.
