The trip afforded much less knitting time than I had anticipated, and I just barely finished my semi-secret impulse project, a Seamless Baby Kimono sweater (design by Jacki Kelly), knit with Lion Brand LB Collection Superwash Merino (100% Superwash Merino) in Sky. I hope the super-new baby's mama will take a picture of him in it when it fits (he's so tiny!), but until then, here's Punkin in her green version:

The FOs are the Lacy Scallops Christening Gown designed by Judy Lamb and the DROPS bonnet in ”Alpaca." Both are knit with KnitPicks Comfy Sport in white. The gown fit perfectly -- which was super lucky, since she wasn't patient enough to try it on beforehand! I decided not to block the gown, for fear of a major change in shape, so she got white fuzz on everyone who held her:
The completion of the holiday season marks my return to s.e.c.r.e.t p.r.o.j.e.c.t knitting in earnest; the deadline approaches faster than the knitting progresses, soooo that's a problem. Wish me luck!
