I Want to Knit
Sunday, April 13, 2008
red and blue
Things have been getting done around here, I promise. For some reason, though, every night around 8 or 9 pm I've been getting a headache and all I want to do is go to bed. I haven't gotten as much accomplished as I would have liked, but here is some of what I've been doing:


I was commissioned to do the finishing work on this baby sweater that my mom's manicurist knit. This is the sweater that (did I already blog this?) I had to go help her fix when she realized after finishing the two sleeves that she'd knit the cuffs with the larger needle, instead of the smaller one. So I showed her how to slip the stitches of one row onto a smaller needle and cut and unpick 1 row, then unravel the now-released cuff and reknit the cuff in the opposite direction. Anyways, she didn't feel up to doing the finishing work, so she asked me to do it for her, and handed me the pattern and a bag with the fronts, back and sleeves. I sewed it up for her, and this is the result. It's a really cute sweater, and it just needs a button to be all finished.
I've also been working on Jakob's Cabled Cardigan lately, and to prove it, here are some progress photos. I keep meaning to block the pieces pre-seaming but I was going to do it after the first front and decided to wait until both were done, then I was going to do it after the first sleeve but am now waiting until both are done. Or I might not block it at all, until after the seaming is done. We'll see. This photo shows the back, two fronts and 1 sleeve.

    Ugh, I hate finishing. I hope you got something good for doing your mom's friend's dirty work. ;)

    The cabled cardigan for Jakob is looking good!

    Just out of curiousity, do you have any favorite patterns/books for kids and/or baby patterns?

    Looks like both our boys will be getting their Spring on with cables this year!
