Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Liesl!
I love this little cardigan! It took me a week to knit, under four hundred yards of yarn, is incredibly soft and sweet, and just the right level of warmth for a Bay Area summer.
I plan to make several more versions of this, and I encourage you to do the same! (and yes, I'm wearing three shades of green in these pictures. You got a problem with that?)
In other news, we all got some bad news yesterday, and it's been pretty hard to take. I just wish this fight was over. It's so draining to hope for equal rights and come so close just to have them taken away. It seems like we should have gotten married when we had the chance. As it is, we are now second-class lesbians in this state.
On a happier note, Baby O can now saw my name (sort of)! When you ask her to "say Cordelia" she says "Deedle-deedle-deedle-deedle-La-La!" It seems like a pretty long name to me, but it's clear she is trying to say my name, and she gets a very proud grin on her face after she says it.
