My boss is having a baby at the end of September and she already knows it’s a boy. Knowing the sex of a baby, while still in gestation, makes knitting SO much easier! At first, I was thinking I’d make a garment-a sweater or something. Ultimately, I decided to go with a blanket (he’ll out grow it much slower).
Here’s what I decided on:
It’s the Cabled Blanket from Simply Baby by Debbie Bliss. The yarn is Reynolds Revue in Denim. I believe I bought 8 skeins-that’s probably a little too much but we’ll see. (and yes that’s a weeds shot)
Finally, here’s the little bit of progress on my Witterings hat (again, shot in the weeds behind my apartment):
For some reason the brim has been going much slower than the dome-part. I was hoping to have it done by now. Oh well.
I’m off to Martha’s Vineyard for a week tomorrow. So much time and so much knitting! I can’t wait!
