owen's birthday has snuck up on me again. i always think i have loads of time after cleaning up from kai's. not so. after wasting a full night grappling with stripe sequences and color choices, it's time for some speed knitting::
here's what i have on my side: 1. owen has completely forgotten that he begged me to make him one of these while watching me work on kai's birthday tidbits. 2. it looks nothing like what it will end up being::
meaning, i can feverishly knit while he's around. for instance, while sitting next to him in the dim light of movie night. however, i'll have to remember to be careful now that progress is being made. one moment of consideration and light will dawn. it wasn't that long ago that he asked for it after all!
