So far, Baby J’s layette is halfway done. There’s the sweet little cotton hat (cream with baby blue i-cord). Then a few days ago I finished the baby blue Placket-neck sweater from LMKG. Okay, I didn’t really finish it. I still have to add the buttons (yet to be purchased). And there’s this little problem I have with my kitchener stitch – a hole at each end of each underarm seam. So far this has happened with every kitchener I’ve done (except for the toes of socks). I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. But I’ve got to figure out a way to darn the darn things.
This morning I cast on for the Picky Pants (cream with blue i-cord). I think they will go fairly quickly. Then there will be a pair of blue booties and then finishing up the diagonal garter stitch blanket (I’m about halfway done with it). It’s so fun to do things that are so small. And I just love working with cotton. Not as much as wool, but I still like it. It reminds me of all the white cotton fields when I lived in south Georgia.
I’m behind on pics of FOs and WIPs. So I had to include yet another picture of the offspring. And yes, that is the Patternworks catalog he’s holding. Again. Mama’s little yarn freak.
