|Mixed clump of daffodils|
I've been working on the baby sweater. I ripped out the Elizabeth Zimmermann pattern and decided to make a different one. Two reasons for this--first I was sure I was going to run out of yarn, and secondly, I felt that it looked too much like an old fashioned sweater. This is a young mama who, I felt, needed a more modern looking outfit for her baby. So I am almost finished with it and am very glad I switched. I ended up using a pattern from the 101 Luxury Yarn One Skein Wonders book. It is supposed to be knit with organic cotton, but I am using the alpaca/silk and it is coming out just fine. Photos when I am finished.
Now I am off to check on the seedlings and gather eggs. Hope to get a fleece picked before the day is out. Busy, busy, busy! Hope you are, too.
