Finally, some knitting

Oh, I miss the knitting time...I could blame it on the graduate work, but to be honest, it's more like the gardening/preserving/sewing/assorted other creations that are really getting in the way. As long as I'm making something, though, it's all good. I started this baby sweater last August and promptly put it aside because I got confused somewhere with the colorwork.

When I picked it back up this August, I realized it didn't really matter if I made a mistake since it's MY design...well, sort of. The basic pattern is Classic Cashmere Sweater from Simple Knits for Cherished Babies by Erica Knight, and the colorwork incorporates a couple of designs from knitting god Kaffe Fassett's Pattern Library. Anyway, the back will just be stripes, so it should go pretty quickly now.

I love knitting this yarn, Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino. At the time I started it, there were 2 babies on their way in my friendship circle. Here's one of those beautiful babies, far too big now, as you can see.

I'll just have to wait for the next baby to come along for it to be properly enjoyed! (Oh, that and finish the sweater...soon, I hope!)
