I’m into the second strip of color for the second half of the blankie:
It’s actually not taking too terribly long to knit, but it sure feels like it’s been forever!
I gave up on adjusting the EZ Practically Seamless Baby Sweater so that it might fit E. I may try again at a later date, but for now it’s off the drawing board. In the larger size, that is. I still intend to make at least one in the called-for size. I might make two for the twin girls of a friend in Iowa. Maybe.
I thought I’d try to ‘write’ a pattern for a decorative little sweater from scratch for my E. I’m not sure whether it’ll actually be my pattern if it works out–I am loosely following the Handy Book of Sweater Patterns instructions, but adjusting them because the smallest size the book has is a 26″ chest. My little girl would be swimming in that! So I am adjusting the smallest size and also adding a couple of elements–a stitch design from the Big Book of Knitting Stitches, a minor adjustment to the neckline, etc. At what point does something become your own? I may never know! 🙂
And now, I’m headed back to the blankie.
