Welcome ZGBC!

September 19, 2009

I finished the baby blanket in plenty of time for the baby’s arrival:
The stitch pattern turned out to be easy to do, reversible and very nice with this cotton:
When I finished it, I had some help to try it on –
P1010018 and then fold it:


Then it was washed, dried, and mailed to Pittsburgh.

Baby ZGBC came last week and is the third-cutest little boy EVER!


Maybe-Have Cardigan

September 19, 2009

I started the “Must Have Cardigan” from the Paton’s booklet “Street Smart.”
These are the 2 sleeves:
I have learned to only knit on this project when I’m by myself and not multitasking. When I try to talk to someone and knit, a skill I usually do quite well, I forget to turn a cable or something and end up ripping back a row (or more).

I haven’t knit this type of cardigan for many years, and I’m enjoying the texture. I’m calling it Maybe-Have instead of Must-Have since it won’t be done for a couple of months. The wool is vintage Bernat Sesame.
