A Little Progress
I have been working on the yarn I brought home the other day. I am making a little progress. The pile of cotton is soon to be a toddler dress from the Knitting in the Round book. The pattern is called Summer Treats. I am relatively happy with the way it is turning out. It will definitely need a good soak to smooth things out a bit. But I am having fun knitting it. I am not sure what the little blue things are supposed to be but my youngest informs me that it is cotton candy the others are popsicles and ice cream cones. I am almost to the armhole decreases....you gotta love those toddler size patterns for a quick knit. .
And the ball of gold Cascade and the Mango Moon Bali Sky recycled viscose became yet another Sophie Bag. I wanted to see if this material would hold up in the wash , and it did. It lost a little of its luster though, I was expecting it to "pop" a little more. Overall I am happy with the way it turned out.
Well, I think that is all to report today. The oldest has a band contest tonight, I need to decide which pair of socks to bring along with me to work on. There is always a lot of time to knit during those..
Happy knitting to all.
