welcome, baby Amalia

Just about a month ago, my childhood best friend had her first baby, a little girl named Amalia.

(Look at that fuzzy little head!)

Of course, some handknits were in order.


Project specs:
Pattern: Sirdar 1564, "Round neck cardigan with frill edges"
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, 2.5 skeins, in color 007 (I think)
Needles: Size 5 and size 3 Addi Turbos
Gauge: 22 sts/in in stockinette, I think
Posted to Ravelry.

I'm almost at the end of the Spey Valley socks (just one toe left to graft, and ends to weave in), so perhaps there will be another FO soon. However, since grad school classes start tomorrow night, don't expect a lot of knitting to happen this fall. Or spinning. Or blogging. Or blog commenting. Or housecleaning. Gah.

Oh, and I just heard from my Sockapalooza pal, who tells me that my socks are finished, and just need to be blocked and mailed, which should happen early next week due to a business trip next week. Perfect -- that will be just in time for fall weather and sock season :)

  • What a beautiful sweater! It flew off the needles so quickly that I didn't even have a chance to fondle it. Good choice though, based on what you've told me of the childhood-BF.

  • I just saw this in Ravelry. It's beautiful. I love Sirdar patterns! Do you have a place you buy them locally? I only know one place and I don't shop there any more.

  • Oh no! We forgot to take pics of the little sweater after Tess's! It looks like you got a good one there though. It's such a cute little top!

  • I love that cardi! The baby is cuter though. No knits can compete with that kind of cuteness. :)

  • The sweater is beautiful! Perfect baby color. I'm glad your pal is in the running here to deliver socks. Something cool to look forward to!

    Do an occasional WIP post...just a picture will do.
