two new things for me, knitting for babies again, and linking up for the first time with a yarn along. please visit ginny at small things for more lovely knitting and reading...
i'm still working on this shawl that now includes over one thousand stitches on the needle (1,152 exactly, oh dear that's a lot). i really needed a change and something that moved along a little quicker. baby gifts were needed as well, and i had an abundance of some pretty yellow wool, just right for these three tiny sweaters...
i love them hanging up, but i really hoped to see them modeled. luckily i have a friend with an almost six month old baby. she was gracious enough to come over today.
that was a lot of fun! baby b was an incredibly patient and adorable model. i really wanted to keep her, but sadly her mother said no. in this photo is the last skein of cascade i have. i don't think i can bring myself to knit one more yellow sweater (one more yellow anything) for awhile. so it would be my pleasure to give it away. if you would like to make one of these sweaters (or whatever you would like, there are 220 yards) please leave a comment saying so and i'll send this skein plus about a half skein more. and if you would like to make one of these sweaters, i'll include the pattern with it too.
reading 'on wings of song' a book of poems about birds my daughter gave me. it's on top of the stack here with the cover (and bookmark). it's small enough to fit in a purse or knitting bag. a lovely book with beautiful poems.
i'm really glad your here, old friends and new.
