More Picky Pants

Here are Little Buddha's Picky Pants, in Manos Flame (love, love, love this colorway). I was thrilled with how they turned out, and they look so darn cute on him. I'll try to get a pic of them on him sometime soon.

This morning I led my second Contemplative Knitting workshop at church. My friend yakmidi recorded it for us to do a podcast. Woohoo - I'm psyched. Will post the cast here once it's edited and ready.

My Bernat Cotton Tots arrived two days ago and I am happily working away at Baby J's layette (due date: July 20, so I'm feeling unusually on top of things). So far I've done one Child's Cotton Hat from Last Minuted Knitted Gifts, in cream (did the i-cord in cream, it was too short so I did it again, and it was too short again; I've decided it will be really cute in baby blue - and this time I'm going to measure before I bind off). Last night, I started the Child's Placket-Neck Sweater, in baby blue. I've got about 3 inches done, maybe more (what do I know, since I am so bad about measuring - i.e., I either don't do it or I do it inaccurately). The cotton is soft and I think the layette is going to be very sweet. (Note to self: just because you like making wee knits does not mean you need another baby.)

The pants are cute.

I'd like to know more about the contemplative knitting that you offer at the church.

How is your husband doing? I know it can be very difficult when one partner is ill.
