Well, I ended up having two extra days off work this week, but no I didn't get a lot of knitting done. Miss P came to stay with gramma because her new baby sister decided to show up Thursday.
We painted grampa's rocks, we hunted for bugs,and generally turned gramma's quiet time topsy turvy.
But look what we got...... Baby Rowan Gail, 5lbs. 3oz. Mommy and baby doing fine.I did manage to finish Rowan's new cardigan. I found this pattern while reading some other blogs, but I can't remember which one. I thought, what a great idea to use up a ball of sock yarn. I have a few balls of Opal cotton sock yarn, but decided that cotton socks were not my favorites so what better way to use it up.
Pattern: Yarni Cardigan
Yarn: Opal Cotton Sock Yarn 100g
Needles: 3.25 mm
This was a very nice pattern, knit in one piece to the armholes, 3-needle bind off at the shoulders, pick up sleeve stitches around the armholes and knit down to the cuff, pick up and knit the collar. I can see myself doing this one again and maybe switching up the pattern.
Miss P and momma picked out the buttons from the button stash, and this project was done.
Now I've started a new blanket for the wee one, and I'm making her a new little hat. (wasn't impressed with the one the hospital ladies gave her, but that's just the knitting snob in me coming out!)
