Here's the most recent F.O. about which I never blogged while it was in progress:
Pattern: Trellis, published in Knitty
Yarn: Plymouth Encore in Wedgwood Blue (the picture is reading much grayer). This was a big stashbuster for me, as this was leftover yarn from a sweater I made Pepe back in 2004. Readers of the blog know that Encore is my old reliable for baby knits, but I am looking for other easy-care alternatives with less acrylic content in the future. Any suggestions?
I would definitely recommend this project and would knit this sweater again. The only modification I would make would be to do fewer buttonholes -- 5 buttons seems a little excessive, especially on a squirmy baby.
The recipient, baby Dylan, is the second son of a college roommate in Richmond. When she received it in the mail on Friday, she called and gushed, "Oh, this gift deserves much more than just a thank you note!" I love when the recipient (or the recipient's Mom) gushes appropriately.
Coming up this week (I think): reports on the 3 current WIPs, the yarn room gets redone, and a Philly Burb yarn shop review (with some special stash enhancement too!)
