We're surrounded by stony hills here in this part of Texas; cell phone reception is dicey at best. So when I became very ill while visiting the family, I had to decide if I might be well enough to fly out in a couple of days, or should I take some sick time? I did go ahead and change my flight plans -- it's no fun trying to fly when your head's stuffed and you're coughing productively. It's enough to make yer head asplode, plus previous experiences have shown me that I do not profit from flying congested. One such trip resulted in an awful sinus infection, and another in an equally bad ear infection. So, I've been here 3 extra days, and will be leaving tomorrow afternoon.
Now, to the all-important question: Did I get the niece's sweater, aka Princess Bunny Hop, finished?
Almost! I bound off the button band this afternoon, and wove in ends, and it's in the wash right now. I've debated as to how to close this little hoody, since I really didn't want to make buttonholes and the Princess seems to be allergic to zippers. I bought some ribbon and snaps, thinking that might be a good way to go. Then I thought about making loops instead of buttonholes, but I don't actually have buttons picked out... I guess the committee is still working on this aspect. Otherwise, I could stick a fork in it and call it done.

Thursday, October 10, 2013
I have joined the body & sleeves of the Bunny Hop, and have finished the yoke portion -- now it's on to the hood & ears (Yes! floppy bunny ears!) and the button band, and finish the underarms. I have until about noon next Tuesday, possibly a bit more since the Princess will be in school that day. I might be working on this in the airport! Yep, another trip to Texas is imminent. But I'll try to post from there, so I don't think you'll miss much.
