gasp! actual knitting content


Yes, I know it's been awhile since I've picked up my needles.  There were some projects scattered here and there that I neglected to mention (and more importantly, forgot to photograph): a pair of socks for my mom's birthday, a scarf or two.  Nothing too exciting.

I'm enjoying this baby sweater though, intended for my new nephew who we will meet for the first time over Thanksgiving. It's the child's placket neck sweater from Last Minute Knitted Gifts.  Man, I love that book.  There is project after project that I'd love to tackle in its pages.  The yarn is a trip:  Kollage Corntastic.  Made out of corn!  How crazy is that?  Corn!  And you know what else?  Machine washable!  And dryable!  The color is moonstone, kind of a deep purpley blue, and I'm thinking of adding perhaps yellow stars or red firetrucks for the buttons.  One sleeve and the lower body down.  I'll keep you updated.  Promise.
