I've been knitting a lot of little projects these days, as you might expect. First of all, there are the socks -- which you'd also expect, given all the sock yarn scraps I have lying around.
Both of these are my Baby Ribs pattern. The pair on the left came first -- seeing as Rainbow is going to be born in the middle of football and hockey season, he or she just had to have a pair of black and gold socks. They're Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock, colorway Bee Stripe, knit with size 1/2.25 mm needles. On the right, some handspun superfine merino on size 0/2.0 mm needles. These have been good lunchtime knitting, as each sock takes only a couple of hours to knit.
Meanwhile, in the evenings, I've been working on another sweater. This one is a Sirdar pattern; I bought the booklet at Natural Stitches when I fell in love with the sample. There are several sweaters I want to make, but this adorable cabled cardigan with a shawl collar was the first one on the needles.
I'm using a slightly thicker yarn than called for and (shhh! don't tell anyone!) I didn't swatch, so my gauge is a little off and I'm having to wing the collar. I should have only a handful of rows left and with any luck will finish it up tonight!
I'm not quite sure what will be on the needles next, but whatever it is, it'll be coming with me to Hurricane Knitting tomorrow night, Waterworks Barnes & Noble starting at 7 p.m.
