Thank goodness. Kevin brought it off to work this morning for little Vincenzo. I hope his parents like it and I hope it fits sometime soon. In all of my excitement to knit Devan–cause I wanted to knit Devan I forgot Vinnie was a preemie. No doubt, it will be big. Oh well…it’s the thought that counts. I used the DGB Confetti, size 1-2. There was a minor error in the pattern. On the back you are told to BO and on the finishing you are told to knit off the stitch holder. The numbers correspond so it is easily figured out but I think they should change it. I emailed the designer. She was very nice.
As easy as this sweater was to knit, it was a lot of work. I will never ever knit a sweater on size 2 or 3 needles for someone not related directly by blood. Hand me your worsted, your bulky or your super chunky. And here’s the back.
I am beginning the poncho for Faith, the nurses daughter at Owen’s school. Although, I squeezed a little St. Brigid knitting in this morning. And I am finally winding my Mission Falls for the O-man’s sweater. In other exciting fiber news, I received my Summer Bucket prize from Becky. It is some very lovely ribbon yarn. I think they will become drop stitch scarves. I have a lovely blue silk/mohair in the stash for the icey blue one. Thanks Becky.
Kim finished her second sleeve and is making coordinating wrist warmers. Stay warm Kim! Vicki is nearly finished her second sleeve but is dealing with some Cromarty envy. Aren’t we all? Kristi is still blowing me away with the speed that she is knitting her sweater and spinning and respinning the yarn. Incredible.
