Caps for Quads
My friend and fellow knitsib, Lisa, is expecting quads. She's in in her 29th week and in the hospital for observation and will mostly likely remain there until the babies are born. I'm glad that she is close enough so I can drop by on my way home from the LYS.
I enjoy our chats about knitting, Dlisted, the NFL, and the military. She is currently in the Air Force, and I used to be.
Inspired by the colors for the baby's nursery, I decided to knit some caps for the two girls and two boys.
The pattern is the Cabled Baby Hats by Julie Hentz. I made these before, and they are crazy quick and easy. I have other knitter friends who are expecting, so I will make more. There's an earflap version too.
I love using Berroco Comfort for baby items. It's nice to work with, very reasonably priced, has lots of nice colors, and is machine washable and dryer safe.
Lady In Waiting
The next thing I'd like to get on the needles is the Lady Eleanor Entrelac Stole. I've been wanting to knit this for years, and just never got around to it. It's going to be a KAL at my LYS, and Lisa(the same Lisa as above) gave me 10 skeins of Noro Silk Garden, color 248.
I got this from my knitsib, Pam, for my birthday.
It's a HK lunch bag. which I'll use for knitting, some bubblegum hand shop, and a HK toothbrush with HK all decked out in her best Western finery. So cute.
I'm naturally introverted and reticent about making friends. In addition, I have a bad tendency to not reach out to people when I need them, and I'm almost always surprised when I realize that someone actually likes me.
Since today is Friendship Day, I just wanted to say how I'm grateful for all my knit/crochetsibs, my blogger, Twitter, Plurk, and facebook friends as well as my friends that I've known for years and years.
It means a lot to me. Thanks to all of you for being part of my world!
