Pithy Title Goes Here;) Hey, it's 7:15 am, and I've been at work for 45 minutes- that title represents the extent of my creative thinking abilities!
I finished the second baby sweater yesterday... I really wanted to do the hood in cream instead of the darker blue, but I'm not sure if the baby will be a girl or a boy, and thought the cream hood would make it "too girly" for a little boy... not that I care, but I know some parents do. So hopefully the addition of the blue accents will make it a little more unisex.
Again, I love this pattern- easy and quick to knit up, and makes a really handy "all-purpose" sweater for the little person... the sleeves are easy to fold back if they're too long, and the lack of buttons/zippers makes it super easy to get on/off. Plus, machine wash/dry! I've definitely found my "baby gift."
I hope to finish mosaic and the glove-mittens in january, and next up will be the green-black sweater. I started my larger swatch last night- I'm going to try out some fair isle peeries to add to the color transitions, and finish writing out the instructions for the back... I need to work out the underarm shaping, and I think I want to do some short-row shaping for the neck. I think for the collar, I'll do a roll-neck in the black for accent. It won't exactly match the picot edgings I'm planning for the cuffs and waist, but I think it'll look nice... but I still have plenty of time until I have to decide.
One more exciting note- it's official... I was accepted to my first-choice law school... so I'll be headed there in August! Cricket patiently waited for me to stop celebrating and give HER some treats... ;)
