April In Review

April in Review

This was the first month that I have made knitting my "day job".  It's been really fun to be able to concentrate on knit blogging and I hope you've all enjoyed following along! 

Looking forward to one knitty filled May! (Project Spectrum begins! Woop!)

I don't know about you but I was a huge fan of Full House growing up. I wanted to be just like DJ and when I got older just like Rebecca who was "so hip for an adult."  The TGIF lineup was the perfect ending to a week filled with homework and basketball practice. There was nothing better than to unwind with the Tanners and see what trouble that Kimmy Gibbler was going to get DJ into! 

Before the series was over there was a Recording Studio in the basement, Uncle Jesse & Rebecca's apartment in the attic, Uncle Joey's bachelor pad, Danny's bedroom, Stephanie and Michelle's shared bedroom and of course DJ's room when she got "a bit too old to share with her two younger sisters" which really was Uncle Jesse's old room. Yea, it had a lot of rooms. Naturally, I felt the only place acceptable for shooting this fabulous sweater was in front of the "Full House" house, aka the Painted Ladies.

Remember the time when DJ learned to wear makeup only to look like Christina Aguilera on a bad day? Rebecca (again SO cool) swooped in and taught her that the key was to "look natural!" Juuust like I do in these pictures.

As for the hand knit which is the real reason why you're probably here – I Love it. I made no modifications to the pattern. It was simple and well written. I even found buttons that were a spot on color match at Britex Fabrics

Thanks to husband for the great shots! You did well, dude! (More shots on Flickr!)
