on the knitting needles

I'm currently working on these two knitting projects. A pair of very delicate and pretty leg-warmers for me and a baby cardigan for the one due next month from the 6.5 stitches pattern.

The legwarmers are being knit in Rowan Cashsoft DK and the cardigan in wool from Brooks Farm in Texas that I picked up at NYS Sheep and Wool. I am a bit nervous about the fabric panel as I haven't tried putting my handknits through the sewing machine so I may just hand sew it on when it comes to that part. I also need to decide on a fabric for it.

Thanks for the the sewing machine advice. I'm still working on a decision. It seems the Janome is possibly simpler to use and works well for quilters but, I get the feeling the Pfaff may be better made.

good luck with the patterns-they both look like fun! to answer your question about moving over to typepad...i've been thinking about it for awhile, and i just feel like typepad is a bit slicker, easier to use, and i don't have to edit as much html (which i'm not very good at!)
