through the yarn along posts it might seem i cast on a lot, but never finish, which is why i try to weave in some finished projects into the link up from time to time, even though i am not technically knitting them anymore. so as i mentioned i finished two projects during our vacation week, both quick and easy baby knits. first the pants i had cast on already at home. i stuck with the stockinette stitch and then threw in a little garter stitch with a contrasting colour at the end. i love how they turned out.
and this adorable little cardigan, from the book More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts it's a very well written pattern, so easy to follow. it does involve seaming at the end of the project, which i'm not very fond of, but this cardi is so wee i didn't really mind that much. the yarn is The Fibre Company's Terra in the colour Redwood. now i really need to go and get some buttons, there are still some missing on this piece as well.
and what a bonus, the cardigan and the pants go very well together too!
there is nothing on my needles right now (gaaahh! can you believe it?) but i have one skein of that gorgeous terra yarn left, so Ravelry here i come... not sure what i might knit with one skein except for a hat or socks/booties. any ideas?
the little man and i have been reading some farm related books and a cute book for children about local birds. my husband and i have become very enthusiastic bird watchers on our holiday, so i guess there will be more reading in that direction in the future!
joining ginny's yarn along again today. what are you knitting and reading?
