Right now I would rather be sitting and knitting at night then in the attic sewing which has been quite nice in the evenings. I know some people prefer to work with lighter yarns but I don't mind working with wool though I also tend to pick up my cotton yarns. I never watch television at all (really) but, I recently streamed all the episodes of Downton Abbey and really enjoyed watching it. Now I have to wait until winter for more episodes. I also like to listen to knitting podcasts while knitting. I like Never Not Knitting's podcast and I know of the Knitmore Girls but, am also interested in hearing your favorites.
I do have sewing to catch you up on though I thought today I'd show you some knitting since it's been a while.
A sweet beret knit up in Quince & Co. Chickadee in Winesap. It's for girls ages 4-8 and I think it looks so sweet on her.. I'm just going to have to keep it. We posed for Mommy in her bathing suit and a wool hat. It is summer after all. And, she may or may not have had a chocolate brownie before we took this picture.
I also knit up two pairs of baby booties that I made up in beautiful organic naturally dyed cotton and they are in my shop.
I am also almost finished with a sweater I have been knitting for a while in a color called Pop Rocks by Madelinetosh in sock yarn. It is a bright pink and I am knitting size 18-24 months. We will see how the sizing turns out because i didn't do a gauge swatch. I think it would look amazing paired with a neutral color.
I can't seem to get green and grey off the brain so I'm pretty sure my Gavotte in nutmeg may be put on hold so I can make some green pieces. I think I am all out of grey but first to finish up this pink sweater.
It is so hard not to start a new piece everyday because there are so many patterns I want to knit.
