The Mister and I had a rare weekend without a lot of plans, so I decided to take full advantage of the situation to make some headway on my Mommy Snug. I spent a couple of hours on Saturday over at Natural Stitches working on the first sleeve while catching up with Yvonne, Anna, and Melissa. I finished it at home later that evening and cast on for the second, which I finished up this morning. Here's how I spent most of today:
I still have to sew up the side and sleeve seams, sew on buttons, and knit the collar, but I'm getting very close to being done. I tried it on like this, and it looks like it will fit perfectly, especially after a good blocking. I only gave the pieces a light steam blocking before I started seaming, but I'm planning a full wet block when the whole thing is done to really even out the stitches.
Meanwhile, when I was at Natural Stitches, I picked up two extra skeins of Cascade 220 for my brother's scarf and got a sudden urge to knit a pair of socks. Shocking, isn't it? I know there's a lot of sock yarn in my stash, but the urge was specifically for a pair of simple stockinette socks, so I thought something self-striping or self-patterning was in order, and I didn't think I had anything like that already. So I picked up this skein of Online Supersocke:
So it's Labor Day and I feel like knitting socks again -- I guess fall must really be here!
