Yarn Along-knitting rainbows
Joining Ginny again this week for her fun Yarn Along, although I can't add anything about my reading. I have my same old Lenten reading still going (In Conversation With God and The Sorrowful Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ by Anne Katherine Emmerich). I read the former first thing in the morning after my prayers, and with my cup of coffee, but the latter is hard, being my nighttime reading and on my bedside. Seems I always have other things to do, and I really need to put those aside for the rest of Lent and read.
I am coming to the last couple of inches of my first Milo. I like the pattern, and I love this Chroma yarn from Knit Picks--very soft, and this Prism colorway is so much fun. I knit the 12 month size using the worsted yarn and size 6 needles and I think it will work, although it seems the arm openings are bigger than I would have liked. It looks huge to me, but I put it up against the other vest I just made for her, and the size is about the same.
I am not sure what I shall attempt next. I love knitting for Gemma, as little sizes move along so quickly. Her birthday is in July, and I have been thinking about a canteloupe-colored cotton raglan top with cap sleeves, but I haven't the yarn for that!...I also have a baby doll to make a little wardrobe for, so there is that to think of as well...
Hope you are joining in this week as well!
