Rosemary’s Little Sweater June 29, 2005

Rosemarys_little_sweater_on_hammock Rosemary’s Little Sweaters are finished.  The blue was knit in Green Mountain Spinnery Mountain Mohair.  The  is color Lupine on sizes US 8 and 9.  It took just under 3 skeins.  The second was knit in Lamb’s Pride Worsted.  The color is Oatmeal, I think.  Same needles and I think it took just under 2 skeins.  The Lamb’s Pride is heavier than the Mountain Mohair.  But I like them both.  Obviously, the LP was much more economical at $13.  The blue will be gifted to Kevin’s niece.  (Cause Ann and Peggy and Ricki thought it was too girly for a boy).  The oatmeal is off to Kevin’s coworker.  It was a simple and quick little knit.  Perfect for gifts. 

I think we are leaving tomorrow morning.  I am not packed.  Kevin and Gracie are though.  I think not flying has kinked my travel anxiety. Owen, I believe, is excited.  I was showing him pictures of the water fun park.  He loved that place.  I am definately taking a sock but need to think of something else.  I considered starting Rogue.  However, that may require too much work locating the yarn.  I really need to organize that stash!

We have internet access in Hilton Head.  Maybe even high speed.  So, I’ll be seeing you.

    Does that mean you are more anxious or less anxious? We drove to Cape Cod and I was considerably less anxious – well I’m not usually too anxious flying after I take like three Xanax. 😉

    The sweaters are very cute but I think my perspective is off from the picture – they look so TINY – like they’re mini sweaters or something.

    Have a great trip! Looking forward to hearing from you on the road.

    Love that sweater pattern…was even thinking of making one for me! Yes, what sizes are they?

    Have a wonderful trip! Wish I were going.

    Have a wonderful trip! You have PLENTY of time to pack and get ready (believe me on this one :). Sweaters look great — what is the pattern? How about BPT from Knitty — calls for 5 st/1 inch and it’s very cute.

    Have a great trip! I don’t think that the blue sweater is girly at all, but I do love both of those little sweaters. Lucky babies!

    Have a great trip! Safe travels! And maybe you can bring a few balls of yarn and get a jump-start on some scarf knitting? Or do you want to bring something more challenging? But definitely something on bigger-than-sock needles to give your eyes a break. Yes, yes…I owe a post. =)
