Sorry in advance for the worthless pictures. I haven’t posted for a while. Why? I’m in the middle of a long, long project (at least for me). Obviously I had an obsession with worsted weight for a reason – it is large, and so projects can be completed quickly. For spring, I was thinking sport weight yarn would be a bit more appropriate. I headed down to my LYS and found some gorgeous Malabrigo Arroyo in a color called Borrajas (very purple, almost a Barney the Dinosaur purple), my boyfriend bought the yarn, and I’m super grateful. I LOVE IT. Anyway, so I’m knitting a pullover called Modern Juliet by Joanne Lew-Goltz. I call her Julie for short. I have a few mods up my sleeve, but this is the overall concept. It is knit top-down, so no seaming is necessary (yay). Seriously though, it is taking forever.
So, one of my friends is having a baby. She’s not going to find out the biological sex, therefore, I have decided to settle on a light gray unisex sweater. This is made out of Cascade Ultra Pima (DK weight). It is super soft, and very washable. This is the pattern: Puerperium Cardigan by Kelly Brooker. I got the yarn at Wisconsin Craft Market. One of my friends tipped me off that they actually had a good selection of yarn (esp. like… a rainbow wall of Cascade 220, hehe). I’m glad she did, because I had no idea! Anyway, I bought two skeins, but I only need one. I’m not sure what I’ll make with the other. Regardless, I have to finish before finals begin so I can give it to her before she is due. I won’t be seeing her over the summer, and I’d like to give it to her in person. This shouldn’t be a problem. It is so tiny, simple, and works up quickly.
I also finally received a package I ordered a month and a half ago that will allow me to begin another project I’ve been thinking about for a long time! I’m super-duper excited about this one! It’s gonna be so much fun! I’ll keep you waiting until it’s ready 😉
