I knit this sweet sweater for my wee prince, Carter, a little while ago. The pattern is Baby Sophisticate by Londen Down. It was a little big for my Carter, so I wasn't in a real rush to finish. I thought, for fall. Well it is fall.
Now how did that happen?
The last several days, instead of knitting, I have been finishing. First I finished wee baby pants. Well, except for the buttons, and those just need to be sewn on. I am hoping before this post is finished, to have a photo of my wee fell in them!
Or not as the case may be.
And since then, I have been working on finishing the sweater. the knitting was long done, but there were ends to weave. Striped sweater. Chunky cotton yarn. How to weave them in without giving the thing unattractive extra bulk.
I could title this post Tails of a Sunday Afternoon, but that would be just a bit cliche. There is a huge piles of yarn tails though. Huge.
I worked all Sunday morning till I just couldn't stand it anymore. My brain had the life sucked out of it before I was finished. I still have one arm to weave and trim to add to that pile.
I did a little knitting, just to take the edge off. I'll show you that tomorrow. Gotta save up my posts. There is another wee one about ready to be born sometime this week I should think, unless he isn't going to have any mercy on his momma and makes her wait some more. It may interrupt with my usual chatter.
In the meantime, I am taking the rest of the afternoon, to go digging in the wool room. There are hats to be made and sweaters that need finishing and this house is soon to be awash in wool and patterns and things that are not baby things. Babies are wonderful but Grandma needs some new sweaters too.
PS. The movie is the Odd Life of Timothy Green. It remains unwatched. Maybe during the week.
