We're going to Disney World!
Back in a week.
Thanks for all of the compliments on my cardigan. With the cold weather finally hitting, it's had a lot of wear in the last week.
I've finished the second sleeve for Charlotte's Christmas sweater. It wasn't until I started the back that I realized I'd knitted the pattern as a 12 stitch repeat instead of a 10 stitch repeat, so all of the stockinette ribs in the sleeves are 4 stitches wide instead of 2. Rather than reknitting the slleves, I'm just using the 12 stitch pattern for the rest of the sweater.
I'm also working on a crocheted baby blanket.
This one needs to be mailed off this week, so it's at the top of the project list.
The pattern is from a Women's Weekly supplement and used 14 balls of Alpaca Silk.
I'm substituting Cashsoft 4 ply for the Bouton d'Or Baby Superwash.
The pattern is from Zoe Mellor's Adorable Knits for Tots. I used US 5 & 6 needles and 6 balls of Handknit DK in Rosy (#312) for the 2-3 year old size. While this sweater knit up quickly, I hated seaming it up. (However, the only seaming I even partially enjoy involves plain stockinette.) Only one more Lace Knit-along item waiting to be finished- the Spring Fling Cardigan.
