More Progress…

But I can’t show it to you!

Good grief. Another baby has done gone and snuck up on me. Another one of my nieces is apparently having a baby next week. Yes, I knew about this a long time ago. Yes, I actually did start a project for said baby. No, I’m not even close to finishing it. Does this sound familiar to anybody?

This of course means I have nothing to show you in the way of knitting. I have been working on it, and I will say that I’m more than half way done with the thing. Oh OK, I’ll show you a teaser.

Can you guess the sex of the baby?? πŸ˜‰

Let’s just call this Electric Baby Blue for now. It’s more yarn out of my vintage Cotton Ease stash, which is slowly dwindling. For someone who really sort of hates knitting with cotton and/or acrylic yarn, this stuff just makes me happy, especially the old colors. The newest colors they have come out with are sort of promising, but we’ll see. They’re still nowhere near as bright as the vintage stuff.

We actually got something close to summer this weekend. It officially hit over 70 degrees here, though it’s supposed to get down into the low 50’s again tonight. I guess I shouldn’t complain. We don’t have 105 degree temps, no tornadoes, and no floods. And I’ve been really able to get my money’s worth out of my woolies this year!

I’m off to start dinner, since it’s 7PM and nobody else seems to be doing so. Have a great week!

  1. Just told Dorothy that we’re back from PAlm Springs – 114 degrees, no humidity. Wouldn’t want to stay all summer, but it was a nice change from here.

  2. Your weather sounds pretty good to me. In fact, if I can’t convince the man to move to Europe, I will consider your area. πŸ™‚

  3. I dont mind some acrylics, but I really dont like knitting with cotton. I did just make a vest that was supposed to be for grandson….unfortunately, altho he is short, he is not as short and wide as th vest turned out. NOt sure what to do with it now….Oh yeah, I made it with cotton ease

  4. I went to Michael’s yesterday for Cotton-Ease, and they didn’t have any! Last time I was there, they had every color, I think. Of course, the teenager working knew nothing…

    And I have two October babies to knit for. If I were smart, I’d start now….

  5. Amazing how quickly other women’s pregnancies just fly past isn’t it? I seem to remember mine lasting about 2 years.
