Speaking of which, last weekend I finished this baby cardigan:
No, it doesn't mean THAT....I've knitted it for charity, not for any wee ones around here. Actually, if I had shown something else in the picture, you'd see it was quite small--sized for a preemie. Am working on another slightly larger one now in a lovely soft purple, and may try to finish a few other things before shipping them off for some needy little ones. We're also starting a knitting club at school next week and some of the kids will be knitting for charities, too, so I may wait and bundle theirs in with mine to ship somewhere. Right now I am thinking our stuff will go to the Baby Pack Project in South Africa, unless the kids want to do something different. I'm also thinking of knitting for Afghans for Afghans. I'm hoping for 2007 to knit at least 1 item for charity a month.
I do need get on with it now, though--I have the cardi OTN, and a pair of socks for Stephen. Have to finish them both, because I have some big projects in the pipeline--I am about to order yarn to make my first adult sweater (for myself, I think!), Ivy. I also have my new yarn from Posh Sock Club to turn into some socks--haven't decided what pattern yet. And I'm thinking of getting some laceweight to try my first real shawl--maybe Cozy. Not sure when all of this is going to happen....anyone have some free time to loan me? Even with my lovely new work schedule (mornings instead of afternoons, so much better!), time seems to get away from me.
Off to knit a little tonight.....
