Finally, after multiple swatches and pestering my dad for measurements, yarn shopping and needle purchasing, I think I am ready to cast on for the Tangled Yoke Cardigan. I takes so long to get ready and organized for a major knit, but the good news is that once the prep is done properly, the knitting (the fun part) is all that’s left. Needless to say, I am quite excited to get those first stitches on the needles! In the meantime, I’ve been knitting for babies as though if I don’t personally knit for them, all the heads of all the babies in the universe would be chilly (tragedy!) and all their little toes would be un-bootied.
Tonight we will have an actual (yes! real!) baby in the house . . . if I can resist munching on his chubby baby cheeks I hope to convince his mom to let him model some of my creations . . . fingers crossed for pictures to follow . . .
