|I promise you this blanket is purple in normal light|
As soon as the blanket is done, I need to cast on for the sweater to go with it. I made the big brother a Baby Sophisticate when he was born, and I wanted to do something that was similar but not the same for this baby. I found a sweet little sweater on Ravelry, Henry's Sweater, that has the same overall look to it and picked up a couple of skeins of Cascade 220 Superwash in an ever-so-slightly heathered blue.
Normally I'm not one for doing blue for boys and pink for girls, but this color was so vibrant that I couldn't resist.
In other news, I've come to the realization that it's time to knit some more socks for my sock drawer. There are a number of pairs that have worn out this year and others that I'm realizing I just don't like to wear, so some new options would be welcome. I have quite a few skeins of Socks That Rock in my stash and even more skeins of handspun sock yarn, so there are a lot of options. Perhaps this weekend I will do a proper dig through the stash and see what I can come up with.
