Seashells from my honeymoon last March.
Some projects have come on and off the needles these past few weeks without documentation. The sweater above is another version of the same pattern I made about a month ago for my sister's expected baby. I got such fine results from the first attempt I couldn't resist making another for a co-worker who's expecting her first baby in about a month.
The socks at the top are my latest obsession. New yarn - our Crosby Hill sock yarn in Rose Quartz and a new pattern that I've never tried before. I had to restart and tear out all the stitches because I realized they were going to be too small on Sunday night, but I'm over the disappointment and back on the knitting bandwagon.
Such is the knitting life.
The yarn and an amended version of the pattern are now waiting near my morning knitting spot for another attempt at this project. I usually have to start over a few times with a new pattern, so this is par for the course, I guess. I'm joining a new knitting circle this upcoming Sunday, so I think I'll pack this project to bring along.
My sister is still hanging in there with her second baby. My mom suggested that we might be able to meet our new nephew or niece this weekend, but I guess we'll have to wait and see. Lots of new projects and precious expectations here at Tendril & Twine this week-end.
