    It’s at times like this that I miss knitting so much – there are some amazingly lovely patterns out there to tempt a body, aren’t there? 🙂

    Hope you show everyone the finished article? 🙂

      Oh yes! I try to take photos of the full progression – I have arthritis in my dominant hand and it keeps me motivated – so that people can see all the steps involved. A lot if bloggers do the same (so I cannot take credit ;)) and I’ve found it really helpful.

      Hoping to finish it today, it’s my first entire day off in two weeks!

          Right? I’ve made Christening gown from silk blends but anything else I just want them to be able to throw it into the washer and walk away. 🙂
          I love this pattern by the way, I still have the short rows to finish but the rest of it was done in a day. Gotta love that.

      It’s a bit small in the back. When I do it again I’ll add a couple more increases – but for a newborn it’s pretty spot on. The arms are excellent and so is the length. I made mine a little longer – somewhere between cardigan and duster – to keep the baby’s bottom warm.
      Overall it’s an amazing pattern though, something to play around with:)

          I bought a book called “Cast On, Bind Off” and it has changed my (knitting) life! I live this book and now everything I am trying gets something new.
          Cannot wait to see what you do with it!

    It is looking good! Baby things are so satisfying as they are done in short order – as compared to large adult things. 🙂 And they are so CUTE!. Glad you are able to get a day off, you need it.

      I was very, very happy for a full day off. I am also not ashamed to admit that I spent ever moment of it on the couch with my knitting, music and audiobooks. Lazy days are so few and far between – I choose to embrace it:)

        I hear you! This week, A was sick, so I just hung out fetching her chicken soup, watching TV and knitting. Made a brief foray upstairs to the craft room for Halloween cards. Lovely day! But of course, I am sorry she was sick. 🙂

            She does feel better, lucky thing was able to go to work bright and early Monday! She is exhausted when she gets home, but she is improving a bit every day.
