FO: 5 Hour Baby Sweater

Although it is a 5 hour sweater, it took me closer to 6. There are many of these found on the web, but this is the pattern I used.

The yarn is Cotton Ease and it was knit on #10 Options. I used dpns for the sleeves so there would be no seams. There is a matching bonnet and booties. I'll post them next time :-)
I love knitting baby clothes. They are so adorable and provide instant gratification. You know exactly what I mean, don't you? What other garment can we knit in 5 or 6 hours?

FO: Juno Regina

Juno Regina was a great knit! I used KnitPicks Gloss and #5 Options Harmony needles.

Worn as a wrapThis was a pleasure to knit, well maybe not the 42" in the middle.... but the diamond patterns on the ends were very intuitive. And using the blocking wires for the first time - I think the end result is great. What do you think?
