Oh my god, so much has happened since my last post! Where do I even begin.... Oh, right:
And I wasn't content with that. I also got a new job and a new apartment, both in new neighborhoods. And you know what a new apartment (with a wood floor!) means?
Say hello to my little friend.
So everything's been coming up Marlena, AND THEN!
AND THAT DOES NOT EVEN INCLUDE THE KNITTING, PEOPLE!
So let's talk about that. I finished that baby sweater I was working on and it turned out so cute I could hardly stand it.
Pretty cute, right? Wait'll you see who gets to wear it:
Not the cutest picture of me, but I'm banking on little Mia here to steal the spotlight. To review, this is the Eyelet Baby Cardigan by Looking Glass Knits. I used Berroco Comfort fingering weight for the ease of care and because of that beautiful, perfect lilac color. I looked at other purples and kept coming back to that one. I was a little hesitant to knit with a purely synthetic yarn but let me tell you, I loved every minute of it! It's soft, springy, and holds eyelets beautifully. I would not hesitate to pick this yarn up again.
Obviously with all of the graduating and new job getting and moving etc., it was awhile until I cast on my next project. While shopping my stash, I came across some Nezinscot Farm yarn I picked up a hundred Fryeburg Fairs ago. I believe the fiber is corriedale, no idea what the colorway might have been named. This yarn was amazing to knit! So squishy! And I didn't even block my mittens when they were done because I loooooove that sheepy smell!
Oh yeah... I dyed my hair red too.
