I’m almost done with all the baby knitting! I’ve finished a hat for (in order of due date) Maria and Luis’s baby, Darlene and Frank’s baby, Mike and Olivia’s baby, and Karen and Cesar’s baby. Since none of them have been mailed, no pictures yet, but I’ll post them soon (and, for those of you on ravelry, they’re already there). My mother still hasn’t finished the sweater for Lauren, and I’m waiting on that so I can make a hat to match out of the remaining yarn. She’s already a couple months old. Hopefully that will all get done before it gets too chilly.
In other knitting news, I’ve started on Girasole! It’s a very easy and satisfying knit so far. I’ve just started chart C. Once that gets too big to cart around with me, I’m hoping to start a sweater for myself. I have the yarn, and I’m thinking about making the February Lady Sweater, modifying the sleeves to make them full length. I’ve got about 930 yards of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in a berry red. I was going to do #70 Lush and Lacy Cardigan, modifying the sleeves to make them full length, but I’m also intrigued by the idea of trying an Elizabeth Zimmerman pattern. To be honest, given the cost of WotA, I could just buy enough for another sweater and do both. Or, save up some and get me some Cascade 220 heathers from Stitch House, now that I live oh-so-close. What do you think, gentle readers?
