Frog Pond!

So I knit this nice little cardi in this lovely yarn last year for Rhinebeck. And I wore it - however, it was not a successful project. So I saw this and knew the lovely yarn would be perfect. So I deconstructed the nice little cardi

Frogged it, skeined it

Soaked it and now it is drying

We'll see how it relaxes and find out it it wants to turn into the circle cardigan ....

Stay tuned

FO: more baby sweaters

I love knitting baby sweaters, but have had about enough for now. I think these make nos. 5 and 6. This pattern is Lacey Baby Girl Sweater knit in Baby Bee Hushaby Solid.

The pattern is well written though the sleeves are knit before finishing the body. I knit the body first, then picked up the stitches on DPNs for the sleeves.

The yarn is from Hobby Lobby - very much like Lion Brand Cotton Ease. It is a little splitty, but generally nice to work with. And it washed very well. Overall these were nice to knit.
