I finished one of my Christmas present sweaters for my great-nephew. At this posting, I am trying to decide if I need to block Encore? Thoughts anyone?
Next up, I am trying to decide what to knit for my great-niece from these lovelies.
My nephew's was from Knitting Pure and Simple, and I could use the same pattern for my niece. I was kind of noodlin with using EPS and just doing a bottom up sweater ala Elizabeth. The other contender is Playful Stripes from Alana Dakos -Never Not Knitting.
The actual pattern is knitted from Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino and my yarn is Encore. At this sitting it will probably be a combo of the two, using the striping and cardigan details from Alan, but using my gauge with Encore to re-work the pattern a bit.
Good thing I don't have to have these knitted until New Year's Eve. This will be some good knitting this weekend.
Today, I am just having a ball. I'm listening to Podcasts, Knitting Pipeline and 2 Knit Lit Chicks while knitting and wrapping the last of the presents I had to wrap. While I was dowstairs, our nice neighbors delivered a tin of homemade goodies. My goal is to limit myself to one goodie a day.
I can do it!!
