No knitting makes me a really cranky woman. Here’s the knitting progress that I have gotten accomplished over the last month!!!! Not much…
But even a row or two every evening when the hubster cuddles Baby K, has kept me sane. The downside, no finished objects in a long time. This is why; I have chosen a small project to work on. Enter “Peace Baby” by the amazing AnnyPurls (did you see her 24 sock-advent adventure!!!!)
I saw this pattern on Anny’s blog a couple months ago and I had to have it – the pattern comes with a great cause too – PEACE!!! I’m loving the instructions and the details and tips that the pattern has and it has been fun knitting this little garment for my adorable Baby K so far.
The yarn is called Home Island that I got from a yarn store in Zurich when we went on our “babymoon”. Granted this is 100% cotton yarn and won’t be the best yarn to block, but the weather here will permit us to wear only cotton or cotton blends and so it’s got to be this. Also, Baby K has been wearing pink, pink and more pink and so I decided to deviate and work this sweater in blue and red and it looks lovely (I think).
I just hope I finish it before she gets too big to wear it…she’s growing so quick and outgrowing most of her newborn outfits. Fingers crossed – I really want some baby-wearing-knits pictures and don’t want to model this on her Teddy Bear!!!
