Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


Can I join you and Catherine and make it a trio? ;-)

Baby Sweater Swatch

Girl Baby sweater.

Lots of pretty pinks and lavenders. I love this lace stitch - it's the same as the one on my Brooks Hill Farm sweater (the one languishing because I have FearOfRunningOutOfYarn)

Ididn't want to knit the body in plain stockinet. Too boring by half. But I do want it to go fast. Also, I want to keep the feel of those points running through the whole sweater. So I knew I wanted some sort of purl stitch to separate wide columns of stockinet. I finally settled on a P,K,P with the K stitch slipped every other row. That’s the middle one.

10 more rounds of that to do on the real sweater and I can begin the wee sleeves.
