Wednesday WIP


Proof that I have started work on the neighbor's baby sweater. Still just on the body right now, but the back and forth clickety clack of stockinette is calming and relaxing.

Hoping to finish this up by the end of the weekend and do a little work on my Mojito socks before starting another baby sweater.

What's your Wednesday's work?

  1. Lovely sweater! Stockinette stitch is a joy to knit. I just finished a shawlette yesterday and blocked it last night, so knitting has been happening here, too.

  2. That is so cute. And the color would work for any gender!

    1. Thank you! It is a boy though, they have an ocean theme going on in the nursery and blue is such a soft warming welcoming color. I agree, it's far more gender neutral than we tend to think.

  4. Looks like you've gotten quite far on that baby sweater! Love the color....I just finished a little preemie hat in that color. I belong to a knitting group here and we are making hats for the hospital and the homeless. Knitting for babies is so fun!

    1. I'm reading your comment laughing to myself. I've been more stressed than I should be, and of course, I realize I didn't knit a stitch of this sweater in 3 days ...

  9. Hey Ellen. How're the mama and baby doing? He out of the hospital now? This is a great blue for him. I'm sorry you didn't get the position you mentioned in the last post. Perhaps something even better will open up for you.

  13. The socks are awesome! I love the striping for some reason. And the baby sweater will be adorable. Glad your soccer season is over, sorry about the job. Chin up, just keep swimming, and all that rot, hoping things even out.

  14. Such a pretty color. Don't you just love baby sweaters? They finish up so quickly. What is your pattern?

  15. Love that shade of blue! And now seeing your progress is bringing on the guilt trip because I still owe a handknitted baby gift. The problem is narrowing down the choices because there are so many cute baby patterns on Ravelry.
