Yarn Along :: On + Off the Needles
From Ginny: ~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs.
I may be reading the same book this week (and still very much enjoying it, I might add), but I have cast on a new knitting project! This is some delicious yarn in a shade somewhat risky for a baby knit. But it’s sophisticated and mysterious and beautiful, just right for the intended family. I’m quite excited to be knitting the baby version of an adult sweater I have long admired. How fun to get to try out the techniques on a small-scale before committing to an adult size? The perfect strategy for a newbie sweater knitter, I daresay.
That coral pile in the background is my finished Tidal cardigan. It’s all over except for the matter of buttons, which I hope to find this week. My button collection is still packed up from the move, and besides I don’t think I have enough of any one kind for this sweater. And the baby cardigan will also need buttons, so I suppose a-button shopping I must go!
What is on your nightstand and in your project bag this week?
Sidenote: We’re gearing up for a fall sweater knit-along over at Stash, and Liz has cooked up a great series of blog posts to help get ready. Check it out, subscribe if you like, and say hello if you’d like to join in; all are welcome!. We’re having a nice discussion over in the Stash Ravelry group, too.
