The smock is finished, and here's the runway show.
The project is the Child's Smock from the Debbie Bliss Knitting Workbook. I subbed the Jaeger Pure Cotton called for in the pattern with 10 balls of Rowan Wool Cotton color 958 and one ball color 900 to make the biggest size. I was able to obtain gauge with the size 3 and 5 needles called for in the pattern.
I've been a little disheartened that I won't be attending MSWF this year, but then I received a postcard from my LYS announcing their week long anniversary sale. From May 2nd through May 6th, all yarn purchases are 20% off. Then all day Saturday, yarn is 40% off. There's nothing like a big yarn sale to boost the spirits. So, if any of you knitters would like to visit us, the best times to plan a trip are around the beginning of May or the beginning of December so that you can take advantage of the big sales while you're here.
