little projects

Because of the sheer number of babies coming this spring, I've quickly begun to work up another baby bolero from One Skein. You see I brought in all these baby color skeins of the Blue Sky Cotton which are enough for a bolero but one skein is not enough for the kimono in Mason-Dixon knitting. So I cast on this lovely mint green and it's coming along nicely. I think I'll trim it in the main color, and then make a cute striped hat in green and blue. Then I'll take the 1.5 skeins of Blue Sky Organic cotton and knit a kimono.

Also on my list is the leaf sweater from Loop-d-loop. I have some yarn (more details later) but needed to order needles and there aren't too many places on line to get 13 circs. I ended up at Purl SoHo, so I also picked up some sock yarn. This is Koigu KPPPM - the rest of the world is quite familiar with it, but as I'm a new sock knitter it's new to me.
I love it. Can't wait to cast on. And doesn't my camera have nice macro skills?

This weekend is a really rare sample sale at Hug-a-dub-dub and my shopping cart has a terrible tendency to oversell when quantities are limited - so, i'll be spending some time sorting out orders this weekend. Not to worry though, I've cleaned up the Sale! section of the cart so that everything that is sold out is taken off.

The lace leaf pullover is a really fun knit. I made one in the fall. And that is the prettiest skein of Koigu.
