missing dpn, found wip

I've just bound off the hem of Wren's sweater and I'm not entirely happy with the way the center cable joins with the baby cables. I bound off using larger needles than I used for the ribbing, so it should be easy enough to pick out if I think of something better. I'll give it some thought while I'm knitting the sleeves. Which won't happen until I find the missing dpn. I suspect the children of using it as a clay modeling tool. Or I might have used it myself for making cables -- I'll have to check my basket. One of the places I looked for the missing dpn was an old wooden typewriter box in which I keep oddments of yarn, markers, needles, etc. I didn't find the missing needle, but I did find a nearly finished miniature version of EZ's baby bog jacket. All I have to do is weave the underarm and I've got a baby-doll jacket for the kids! Of course, the reason it's been sitting there for probably two years now is that I loathe (and suck at) kitchener stitch. I resolve to conquer this fear and loathing, and master the kitchener stitch forthwith. Then I'll be able to finish Robin's pirate t-shirt from last Spring! Pictures later...
