By this time on Friday, I'll be at Rhinebeck, NY for the Sheep and Wool Festival. (Don't worry, the shop will still be open and Becka is in charge - drop in and say hello to her.)
I can't wait! I've been planning my knitting all day. First, you've got the long car trip. Then you got the knitting with fellow fiber enthusiasts. There's lots of potential knitting time.
Of course, the Central Park Hoodie is going. But, I need to count rows, do cables, and shape things a bit. That's ok for the car trip. Not so good for walking around and chatting. Hmmm...
Then Becka came up with the perfect idea - a Knitting Pure and SImple Baby Rollneck in DIC Classy! What color? Punky Fuschia! That will be one cool little baby sweater.
I had a few things to finished before packing up. Weather reports say that the nights and early mornings will be a bit chilly so I am trying to get my Dashing mitts done to keep my hands warm.
And I couldn't go away without making sure Madelyn's sweater was really and truly done and in the mail.
The buttons went on yesterday and the package was sent this morning.
I am so thrilled with the way it turned out. And I adore the ruffles.
Every little girl needs a few ruffles in her life, right? Hee hee. I just wish I could see her in it. My brother is going to have to exercise his photography talents and get me some pictures.
And yes, I will be writing up the pattern - I just don't know when.
I'm not the only one knitting baby things. Check out the lovely blanket Susie made out of Dream in Color Peach.
She is going to gift them and make more! Two skeins of Kochoran will make 3 pairs of mittens. And these babies whip up in an afternoon - so for those of you thinking of holiday knitting - this is a quick, fun option.
