Another Finish Baby Sweater


This is the latest project. Are you tired of baby sweaters yet? I have one more to do for my boss's daughter's baby, due in a couple of weeks and then it will be baby sweaters for the grandbaby due the end of July.

This sweater worked up in under a week. It is the same pattern I used last time. The only modifications I made was to do six rows of garter stitch at the bottom of the sweater. I like how the front ended up with a pink and a blue side. It wasn't intentional but, it looks kind of cool I think. The back was not so defined by color. It worked up more variegated like the sleeves did.

I have three full bobbins of the superwash from the Sheep Shed spun and about half a bobbin of the silk spun. The silk is spinning up better than I thought it would, but I have yet to ply it. I still don't know if I actually like to spin silk. As Lyn told me, it is spinning up about how I spin most of my other fibers. I don't know if I actually like the color it turned out to be. It might make a difference when I have it plied.

Happy knitting & spinning.

As I was at the booth of Peter Roberts this was exactly the case rolex replica uk and - to top it all off - I had the chance to look not only at this new, modern series but the original watch that he built in 1972 as well (pictured above). And this is exactly what I felt SalonQP was about. Those who attend may rest assured that they will get to rolex replica uk personally meet the people behind some of their favorite brands, that there is a chance of shaking hands and exchanging thoughts with every exhibitor regardless of whether he/she is the founder, the CEO, a watchmaker or the expert of rolex replica sale another craft. This creates a special opportunity to look at the industry from a more personal point of view. It is a genuinely fun and replica watches yet professional way of improving your understanding of the industry and perhaps even trying your abilities in a few of watch making's many indispensable crafts. And all this, collectively, is why I replica watches uk recommend you to mark the 2014 event in your calendar.
