another baby sweater...

I made this last fall for a co-worker's baby - it finally fits!

There is much I should have blogged about these last two weeks of blissful unemployment. Why does it seem like so much work to download photos? I want to tell you all about my rug weaving workshop with Jason Collingwood, some amazing quilts (here is someone else's photostream), my tramatic dental experience, the newly restored Jacquard loom at Greenfield Village, my field trip with Jillian and Amy to Beth's store, teaching preschoolers to weave....
Tomorrow it is back to the real world, with a new job at a new company. Wish me luck!



I spun a wee bit of Lorna's Laces superwash merino for a Knittyspin review. It sortof kicked my ass but it turned out purty. Behold:

(And I do love that niddy noddy - I got it from Morgaine at SOAR but I can't remember the name that the thing is called.)

With the yarn, I made some baby socks for Ingrid's new Adelaide.
Normally I have a "no knitted gifts for knitting friends" policy. Since Ingrid is the most amazing knitter I know I am not sure what I am thinking giving her these, um, - shall we say rustic? - socks. But look at her!

In other baby knitting news, here is the latest office baby sweater:

The pattern is from the Nashua Handknits booklet Bloom. I used 1824 wool, and didn't knit to gauge, so following the infant size I got about a 6 month size. The baby is due in June, so that should work out OK.

No one else at work is pregnant (at least that I know), so I am off the hook for awhile. And anyway, Friday is my last day as a public servant so I guess it doesn't really matter!
It finally fits!
