having a SEAMINGLY good time
saturday morning was filled with anticipation, as i was eagerly looking forward to finishing the baby hoodie i have been slowly but surely working on. (stop calling me shirley!) i finally cast off the last portion this week, and i had to keep my knitter's ADD in check, as i was so tempted to start working on that summer dress for my niece, and the baby blanket for a friend who's due late summer, and the socks i have been wanting to start, oh and fixing that god-awful vest i have cast aside...amongst all the other projects i have buzzing around in my mind.
so i gathered up all the pieces, got my coffee started, and was ready to begin the finishing.
by noon i had the front and back together, seamed at the shoulders, and the right sleeve attached.
a few hours and a couple of episodes of planet earth later... voile! the baby hoodie is done!
this little cutie is knit up in rowan's all seasons cotton; - 60% cotton/40% acrylic microfibre, in keen. perfect for baby wear, since it is machine washable. now that i am looking at the finished garment, i am hoping that it's not too small for little connor, yikes!
due to popular demand: yes, there is a pattern that i used - it is the hooded sweater from "special knits" by debbie bliss. there are lots of great, simple patterns in this book.
