When did I start hankering to sew on buttons? When this baby cardi decided to be super-cute and then just never dry after blocking, that's when. Even DH spontaneously described it as cute and asked when it was going to be done and posted here. Oh damn the linen-and-cotton blend! It's good not having to figure out how big a baby is going to be when the weather is appropriate for wool, but it's not so good waiting for cotton/linen to dry.
How adorable are the little pockets!?! They aren't big enough to hold much, but I'm thinking of making a wee knitted toy to put in them. Any good ideas for something that will fit in a 2x2" pocket?
Since I had so much work to do this weekend, it seemed like an appropriate time to cast on and get completely caught up in knitting a new shawl.
This is the beginning of Echo Flower (by Jenny Johnson) which I am calling Mr Eko Flower, because I'm freakishly obsessed with LOST. No matter that it makes no sense at all to name a shawl after a dead character who never wore a shawl.
