Reading and knitting are two things I can’t seem to get enough of, so once again I’m joining Ginny at Small Things for Yarn Along.
This week I’ve started knitting Sweetpea’s Easter dress. The pattern is Baby Vintage Petti-Dress by Kate Oates which I found on Ravelry. I’m using Drops Merino Extra Fine in pink (MC) and white (CC) for the yarn.
I’m finding that the more I knit, the bigger my projects seem to get. For the longest time I wouldn’t knit anything bigger then a dishcloth, then I graduated to a scarf. This dress is the biggest knitted article that I’ve set out to complete so far. If I complete it, my sight is set on this Shalom sweater as the next “big” project.
I’ve got a stack of books on the go. This week I’m enjoying Mom to Mom, Day to Day: Advice and Support for Catholic Living (a great book!), Knitted Wild Animals: 15 Adorable, Easy-to-Knit Toys (I see a knitted monkey in the near future) and Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen.
