Baby sweaters

The past weeks I have been trying to be productive knitting-wise; for a variety of excuses I have not done particularly well.

But, despite all, I have two of three baby sweaters done, and here are the brag photos.

There is a third sweater on needles at the moment, and about ¼ of the way done; I have almost finished the yoke. It is yet another small variation on this theme. I should probably do a book about this pattern called 200 variations on a theme.

So I have been sick. And distracted. And busy. More distracted than any of the other.

But the baby sweater which was supposed to be done before the first is not yet done. Just about to cast off the body and pick up the sleeves, so a solid 6 hours left to put in on the project.

It’s a bright orangey-yellow washable wool. The sweater is my classic baby raglan from the top in plain stockinette. IOW: mostly boring. But the pattern has been very popular with new moms, and the washable wool is a huge bonus for them even if it means it’s not the most huggable sweater I have ever knit.

Anyway, tonight has been a lost cause for knitting. My head feels stuffed with cotton, and I am sneezing and leaking in a most unpleasant fashion.  I was sure hoping to get this off the circular needles tonight but I will concede defeat and head to bed for my very early morning.
