But Wait! There’s More!

I’ve been on a tear this past week to get a gift in order for a brand new arrival.

This is the Autumn Leaves baby cardi.   Sweet, hey?  It took me only about 5 days – perfect, since I was on a deadline, scheduled to greet the new little person this weekend.   I know, the buttons are maybe a little too funky for this delicate knit, but I couldn’t resist them.

I made a little hat to match.  However, the hat size is clearly more suitable for an older baby – not sure what’s up with that.  I knit to gauge with both projects.  I won’t sweat it, though.  It’ll be worn eventually!   I knit both projects in Frogtree Meriboo left over from my Lily cardigan.  It’s a nice, soft yarn for baby items.

After that little interlude, I can move on with my life.  I’ve got two cardigans in the planning stages, and I’m going to start a lace project as soon as I can get off my backside and wind the yarn.

Anyone else knitting these days?

    Was thinking of you as you were in the one college class in all my many years as an English major where we read my if-I-have-to-name-one favorite book: Jane Eyre. Am completely loosing sense of reality lately over Jane Eyre shawl that is a buzz on ravelry, based on the new movie that I haven’t see because I live in Marquette. So, yes, I am knitting.

    Been lurking on your blog–figured it was time I fessed-up. I enjoy it.

    And I like the little girl sweater– kind of you not to do it in pink. She’ll get enough pink.
