WIP report


We love cotton! Here's Tiny Dancer, giving the Cotton Tots some love.

So far, Baby J's layette is halfway done. There's the sweet little cotton hat (cream with baby blue i-cord). Then a few days ago I finished the baby blue Placket-neck sweater from LMKG. Okay, I didn't really finish it. I still have to add the buttons (yet to be purchased). And there's this little problem I have with my kitchener stitch - a hole at each end of each underarm seam. So far this has happened with every kitchener I've done (except for the toes of socks). I don't know what I'm doing wrong. But I've got to figure out a way to darn the darn things.

This morning I cast on for the Picky Pants (cream with blue i-cord). I think they will go fairly quickly. Then there will be a pair of blue booties and then finishing up the diagonal garter stitch blanket (I'm about halfway done with it). It's so fun to do things that are so small. And I just love working with cotton. Not as much as wool, but I still like it. It reminds me of all the white cotton fields when I lived in south Georgia.

I'm behind on pics of FOs and WIPs. So I had to include yet another picture of the offspring. And yes, that is the Patternworks catalog he's holding. Again. Mama's little yarn freak.

That picture is too cute! Alden always pets my yarn and says in this really reverent way, "pretty yarn." Cracks me up every time.

I'm finding I really like working with cotton too. Can't wait to see your FOs!
