So, like many a blogger before me, I succumbed to the most complex project/Finished Object of All Time: a baby. This is our little daughter, Margot, who arrived in the middle of summer. Of course, since she basically requires being fed and/or is pooping all the time, my knitting and blogging time is non-existent.
I did manage to knit her two sweaters (one of which had 2 rows and finishing to do after she was born, which took me weeks), mostly before she was born:
Pattern: Sunnyside, by Tanis Lavalee (free)
Yarn: Sundara Sock, from my old Seasons subscription, color, deadly nightshade.
Needles: I have baby brain and I have no idea. Probably a 2.
Project begun/ended: Maybe April to June 2012?
Notes: Easy to knit (well, if you don’t have a baby with you), but you have to keep track of the numbers.
Pattern: Baby Surprise Jacket, by Elizabeth Zimmerman, from The Opinionated Knitter
Yarn: Southwest Trading Bamboo.
Needles: I think the same needle as above? A 2?
Project begun/ended: June to August 2012
Notes: This is a very non-intuitive pattern—I depended heavily on the Ravelry BSJ notes to help me knit this. Cute and unexpected though.
