I alluded earlier that I was knitting something that I couldn’t show until the recipient received it. I got the all-clear yesterday … no, wait, Wednesday night.
I saw this yarn at my LYS. It’s a local yarn, merino, sea-cell and I think nylon. I didn’t keep the little tag. In the hank, it reminded me so much of bacon, I knew I had to make Ande something with it. And what do you have with bacon? Waffles!
Vague notes are on my Ravelry project page here. I’m too tired to think about it. I combined two patterns to get what I wanted. The yarn is a dk/sport weight and I used 3 mm needles.
They turned out really cute! I used about half of the yarn and sent the rest along in Ande’s birthday box.
I don’t remember if I posted these photos here or just on Ravelry. I knit up a baby sweater using some Bernat Natural Blends Cashmere. I used a Five Hour Baby Sweater pattern. I decided to put three buttons on it. Super quick and easy pattern.
This was for little Felix who lives in another country. I saw a photo of him wearing it a few weeks ago and I had to laugh at myself. I am completely clueless on baby sizing. When I made and sent it to his mother in March (close to his arrival) I was worried it might be too small. He only grew into it a few weeks ago. Ha.
In lieu of having to think of what to start next, I’ve been working on that Imogen cardigan. The 20 minutes at night I have to knit before I crash. Sooo busy, but after a meeting on Sunday, it will be back to my regular hours. Still lots of work to do, but I hope to have some more time in the evenings to knit and relax.
ETA: I saw this on HLN today and it cracked me up. Smart dog!
