24 April 2008


I'm suddenly finding myself with 2 months to go with this pregnancy and so much knitting to do, both for my baby and friends' babies. I doubt I'll get much knitting time in after the baby is born so I feel very time pressured to finish all my projects. Luckily baby stuff is usually pretty quick to knit.

For a while now I have been working on and off on an Anouk pinafore dress for a friend's baby. Ironically, this friend was my college roommate and she and I are both due on the same day. Kind of freaky. Obviously she knows she is having a girl.

I just cast on for the Pompom Papoose from Knitting for Two for my baby.
I thought this cotton yarn in nice summery colors would be perfect to keep Baby warm enough in air conditioning this summer.

Go with the flow

I finished my Go With the Flow socks last night. Just in time for Spring and warmer weather to arrive it seems, but I live in New England so there are sure to be many cold days left this Spring to necessitate the wearing of wool socks.

Pattern: Go With the Flow socks in Favorite Socks by Interweave
Yarn: Ancient Threads Merino Wool Fingering Weight in logwood purple, purchased at Rhinebeck
Needles: size 2 DPN
Thoughts: loved the yarn and pattern!!
