I am almost finished with the pebble vest for my soon to be nephew. It was so much fun to knit and I learned what SSK meant! Now all I have left to do is learn how to do the kitchener stitch to close up the one shoulder. I am going to do that with the hat as well. I am calling the hat a itty bitty kitty hat. LOL I hope to get to Tempe Yarn and Fiber on Friday so they can show me how to do it.
My next project is to make a big version on the pebble vest for Fiona. I am planning on using the Panda silk yarn. It is in a DK, but I am hoping using two strands and increasing the cast on and the length will make it big enough for her. My plan is to use the green and add in the pink and the blue (that I made into a vest for my nephew, but I am going to rip it and reuse the yarn) alternately. If I have enough yarn I will make a hat for her as well. I am also going to tackle the knitting of two socks at once. I found a tutorial for it. I am really excited about those as well. I have a weakness for baby items, they knit up so quickly! LOL
I really haven't been reading much. I did get a voice recording of Walden which I have listened to while I knit at night when the house is finally quiet. Otherwise I am reading Fiona "Each Peach Pear Plum", a Barefoot book of nursery rhymes, "Grandfather Twilight", and "Piggies" about 100 times a day. She just loves her books. That is why I put them in a wee basket for her to carry around. LOL
Oh quick question: where to get sweet wooden wee tiny buttons??
