Just popping in quickly with a few knitting project -- one finished and one almost finished.
I have been busy knitting a pretty wisteria blanket for my secret project. It was a great pattern -- something to work on in the evening. And the yarn was really nice -- Knitpicks Shine worsted. I really like that yarn, especially for baby items.
It was Lent while I was working on it.
When I finished the blanket I started a baby sweater for a baby shower I was invited to.
I have only given a handful of handknit items for baby gifts, so I hope it's appreciated. I am on the second sleeve now and then the button band is all that's left. It's been a nice knit and I really like the moss stitch, which I used in a sweater I made for Faith (you can see it better in Faith's sweater). I probably should have made the baby wren version of Faith's sweater because it's a summer baby -- not sure what I was thinking in starting a sweater, but I hope the baby will have a need sometime over the summer until he or she grows out of it. I went with the Shine worsted in white because the mum doesn't know the sex of the baby.
Obviously since I have one and a half sleeves on it, I have more than this much knitted, but it was dark with rain all day today and I couldn't get a photo.
I'm still reading A Girl of the Limberlost, but mostly my spare time is spent sewing, working on the wedding program, and helping at the costume department at the dance studio. At night I have no more time than for prayer and a decade or two of rosary (or the Divine Mercy chaplet, until Sunday).
Join Ginny for more knits and books.
