Knit it, Violet!
Finished objects, works in progress, and lots of rambling about two sticks and some string...

  bye bye, baby (sweater)!
the peapod sweater is (finally) finished:
i absolutely love it. i'm definitely going to make the pattern again, although who knows when. Specs: Baby PeaPod Sweater by kate gilbert, in knitpicks shine sport. I think i only used 3.5 balls, which if i remember right was less yardage than the pattern called for. size 5 needles. the yarn was wonderful to work with and super soft. i don't think i'd use it for an adult sweater, but for babies it's tops.

I just sewed the buttons on last night and it's on its way to the mommies today! baby is due the 27th. i hope they like it!

oh, and i finished another recycled silk purse, this one is a gift: pretty much the same as the last one i made, although i went down 3 needle sizes for the garter stitch band at the top, which worked a lot better, and did a 3 st i-cord instead of 2.

okay, no more time to blog. time to knit study for finals knit and study for finals!
that baby sweater is darling. i love the lacy-ish detailing and offset buttons. i am mad jealous of your knitting skills violet! how long has it been since you started? a few years? i'm moving along with my plain ole knit stitch, but enjoying it very much :D i can't wait to learn more. though my fingertips are sore from pushing off the end of my needle! but beautiful work dear <3
I love your pea pod!! Glad to know you like the shine for it since I may be making a couple for some bebes next year!

Good luck with all your studying!
