You know what? That blue-and-green Baby Surprise Jacket was so much fun, I think I’m just going to keep going! (And I’m still writing these posts from the past, so I’ve got nothing but time as I wait for this gigantic baby to decide to show up. Seriously! I’m a really fun combination right now of bored and uncomfortable, and I need something fun to keep me entertained. I’m sure that by the time you read this, I’ll more than have my hands full, what with keeping a baby alive and happy, but for now I’ve got to keep myself occupied.)
I dove into my stash again, and this time, I found a bunch of bits and bobs of really lovely pink and purple yarn!I’ve already started chugging away, working my way through the my first couple mini-balls of rich violets and royal purples.
I’ve come down a needle size (I’m using US6s instead of US7s), and the fabric is turning out a little more sturdy than the blue-and-green sweater (which is super loose and drapey, but still lovely). Because it’s a smaller needle, the sweater is going to end up being a little smaller, too.
I think that’s OK, though. After all, babies tend to be pretty little, at least at first.
Have you got anything fun on your needles these days?
