My green monster baby blanket grew by leaps and bounds, from 50% to 76.3% complete:
|at 50%, off the needles for maximum purtiness|
|no room! nooo rooooom on the needles!|
These legwarmers were so nice, I wanted to keep 'em... but I didn't:
Hanging Out on a Limb [Rav] by JM Cobb; knit with 2 skeins of Spud & Chloë Sweater in colorway Skydiver
|action shot modeled by the happy recipient|
MODS: 97 rows between CO and BO to achieve 16” length; used a climbing eyelet stitch pattern in place of every other knit rib
I'm also in the process of baby sweater-ing for a pair of twins and their older brother! Two 3-6 month sweaters down (minus the buttons, of course), three more sweaters in various sizes to go...
There was non-commission knitting as well! I started an Olive Branch [Rav]... then thought better of the yarn/pattern combo...
And there was a gigantic chill pill... because I totally needed one:
Chill Pill [Rav] by KnittingPony; knit with less than 15 yards each of Universal Pace (discontinued) in 19 Yellow and Cascade Heritage Silk in 5619 Christmas RedMODS: used a provisional cast-on of 34 stitches and knit the decrease instructions twice, once for each color
And now I'm back to work, with a mountain of email to dig through with relief. Let's hope this doesn't happen again in a couple of months, when the stopgap "debt deal" expires.
