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
study for finals!
