My camera is on the fritz, that’s mainly why I haven’t been posting any blogs lately. I used my flip video camera which I highly recommend to anyone with children!! The only problem is that it’s not so good close up. Anyhow, I got the playdate hoodie kit (from Lionbrand) in the mail a few days ago, so that’s pulled me off of the socks right now because I’m so eager to do my first garment in prep for my holy grail project!!
I’m starting on the back panel first. I was good and did a swatch to measure my gauge and I even washed and dried it as specified on the yarn so that I make sure it fits. The Knit Witch on YouTube has great instructions on creating swatches and measuring gauge. I figure I should practice patience as well 😉
My dark cable socks and blue lacey socks are coming along nicely. I’m very close to being able to do the toe on the blue socks, but those have been shelved for now since I’m so excited about creating this new little sweater.
What I really need to do is finish up the booties, crochet a flower for the matching hat, and find some really cute little buttons because my BFF’s sister had her baby a month early (good thing I made the hat so small)! My goal is to finish that by the end of this week and ship it off to her 🙂
