March already?

Okay, so I've been busy. I finished the baby set.

I love the details..... diamond stitch and daisy buttons.

I guess you figured out my friend had a little girl. 8lbs-1oz, and her name is Sydney.

In other news I received a phone call from the lady at the Alpaca Farm.
It's only about 15 minutes from where I live and she had my phone number from when I was there in the fall and purchased some yarn.

She is desperate for some knitting. She apparently sold almost every item in her store since her grand opening and needs more knitted items. How could I refuse?
I took my Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran to show her my work and it was love at first sight.

So I have this gorgeous creamy colour Alpaca but it's like a fingering weight. So I used my yarn counter to find out how much yardage there is,

and if I double it I will have enough for the sweater. I'm just going to modify the neck because she doesn't like the turtleneck. So we'll go with a nice round collar.

How cool is that!

Love the baby set! Congrats on the new knitting job. The Lens here was looking for knitters, but when I was in the person I should talk to wasn't there and I haven't been able to get back. Oh well. I'm too busy now anyway. *loL*

How sweet is that sweater set ... sweet buttons too. And I love the baby's name.

I love the baby cardigan set, so beautiful. I like the aran you are making too, very nice. I think you will have to go and try on some different styles of hats and see which ones suit you the best, then you can knit your own. I still love the hat though, very chic.
