Hot off the needles

Yesterday I completed my second baby sweater, this time in newborn size. I'm not thrilled with the yarn I used, but I had it here and I was just itching to start another project, so I went ahead and used what I had on hand. It turned out pretty well. The pattern is the garter stitch baby sweater from Debbie Bliss' Quick Baby Knits. The booties I started last night and finished this morning. I got the pattern for them here. I still want to do a hat to complete the set.

I got to indulge my knitting mania a bit yesterday. We went into Bowling Green and I got to go to Hobby Lobby for the first time in a couple of years. I bought enough yarn to keep me in [knitting] stitches for a while! I even bought some for a pretty sweater I hope to make for Una by the coming fall.

So many patterns, so little time...!

  1. How beautiful they are. I went into a baby bootie knitting frenzy when I was expecting my last. Alas that was the last time I have had time to touch my needles.
