Two December projects

I cannot count the number of projects I started and abandoned over the past few months. Off the top of my head, there was a cabled baby sweater using Cascade 220 SW, a striped chevron baby blanket using Berroco Vintage Chunky, a pair of longies (footed pants), a striped baby sweater using fingering weight yarn (what was I thinking?), and probably a good number of other overly ambitious projects.

Only two projects have really stuck. Not surprisingly, they are the simplest, most transportable ones of the bunch.

Yet another one of my honeymoon blankets, using an eye-searing Katia Jamaica #4004. It’s completely brainless and I absolutely love watching the colors transition. I am managing to knit a few rows between this and that, and am actually about halfway through!

This is the Petite Facile Pullover from the Winter 2011 Interweave Knits. I’m using some SW merino 3-ply handspun from Pigeonroof Studios. It’s knitting up into a lovely denim-colored fabric. I think a bright, sunshine yellow button will finish it up perfectly. I started this project very recently, but I think I’ll actually finish it (unlike baby sweaters which are cabled all over or call for fingering weight yarn, ahem).

For the Gregory fans in the crowd, here’s my cutie wishing you Happy Holidays!

    I don’t think I’d be able to work on that honeymoon blanket, those colors are really eye-popping! On the other hand, I don’t know how you get anything done at all — I would be spending all my time staring at that gorgeous kid.

    Keep the Gregory pictures coming! What a delightful child–I hope you all are enjoying him. Happy Holidays to you and yours!

    He is just tooo cute! Love those cheeks! I just found a whole bunch of Katia Bombay, so I think another Honeymoon Blanket has just been added to my queue. Happy New Year! Enjoy that gorgeous little boy.

    That is a great picture of Gregory!

    I haven’t had much crafting ADD lately, but now that the new year is approaching it is bound to come out of the woodwork!

    Your baby makes a charming model for his knitted garments…that is, when I can take my eyes off of him. He’s precious. This time in your lives will go by so quickly, take lots of pictures.

    Your Gregory is just adorable. I have a nephew of the same name, so it is special to us also. Happy New Year to all of your family.

    Your baby Gregory is so precious — and photogenic! I found myself reminiscing about Christmases with little people around, sigh…

    Happy New Year!
