This looks more like baby boy sweater. I'm knitting this at the three month size and flew threw the top half. I'll knit the body during my bus ride. Yarn is Pagewood Farms Yukon in Navajo colorway.
I've finally finished the body on the slow motion baby sweater. This is just one size larger than the above sweater, not many more stitches but it has been growing in slow motion. Just have to find my size 3 double points for the sleeves and it will be finished. Then a little hat and some booties, hopefully they knit up faster, and I'll send it all off next Monday.
I'm using Henry's Attic petite cotton yarn that I had dyed awhile back. All was going well until I got to the body and it pooled. I know the baby won't care. I'm afraid the father's family might look at it and think my daughter's mother is a bit of a freak.
Over the weekend, I was only able to get about halfway through the llama. There's a ton of peddling to plying a two-ply laceweight. Hopefully, I'm not to exhausted on my Sunday and Monday off to finish this. I'll be walking about two miles a day to the bus stop then the bus stop to work that's a bunch of stepping too.
I'm writing this Tuesday morning, scheduled to post at midnight eastern time. If I'm not to tired I'll post about how my first day at work was this morning (when you'll be reading this), so you can check back later today, if you're interested.
Thanks for stopping by to see what I'm up to this week. I'm going to try to head over Tami's in the mornings to see what everyone else is up to.
