On the knitting front, most of my knitting time has been spent knitting charity items . I have one, yes, just one, sock done. And I started a sweater vest last night that I am designing as I knit. It hasn't been blocked so it looks a little narrow in this picture, but other than being a little short it will fit the youngest. I think it will fit a six year old nicely. These are for CIC.I have a hat finished. I was going to send to Kate of Minestrone Soup , but she is asking for fun fur type hats and this is fuzzy but not fun fur, so I don't know if it will work or not. My girls sure like it, so maybe it will make it into the mail and maybe not.
The Lone Knitter is having the blanket drive, so I started a baby blanket to send to her for this month. I didn't get the squares in the mail for January, so I will send those along with the blanket when it is finished. I am knitting it in Plymouth Encore. I had a few requests for this blanket when I went up to work on Saturday night. Seems like half of the girls at work are in the family way. I will remember not to drink the water up there.
And I started a baby sweater that I am designing. I have been asked to knit for a baby that is due in June, so I thought I would work up a few things, see if they liked them and then donate the others to charity. So far I like this one, and I am even remembering to write down what I am doing, which is really unusual for me. Well I think that covers all the recent knitting. Today is the first day all three of the kids went to school and then the two youngest had a half day. But it was a day with no sick children home, yea! We are all taking daily vitamin C now. Maybe that will help.
