I promised these pictures a long time ago, but then my mom and sis ordered my new model for my birthday, so I was waiting for her arrival. Isn't she bright and cheery? I'm thinking her name should be Cherry.
Regardless, this is my much-worn Baby Cables and Big Ones Too sweater that I finished back in December.
This sweater is going to be my guideline for fit for all future sweaters. I wear a tee-shirt under neath because it's a (nicely) lightweight knit.
Pattern: Baby Cables and Big Ones Too by Suvi S. (that is a Ravelry link) Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool color is #39 a pink/oatmeal Needles: Knitpicks Harmony dpn's US 6.0/4 mm Started: September 28, 2008 Completed: December 22, 2008.
Note: This turned out much better than I expected. The yarn was a little odd, but I didn't pay much for it so I guess it's hard to complain.
Rivulet is flying along - I have one sleeve and the front ribbing to finish - it's a race to the end of the yarn.
Cherry was happy to help me decide if it was long enough. Knitgrrl actually sent me the pattern on my Kindle, but I will be darned if I can figure out how to access it.
Today I am having a little knitting soiree with Miss T, Miss Think and Miss Tight (Hmmm, I think that makes me Ms. Stairs). Anyway, Miss T excels at showing the piles of knitted blobs, so in the spirit of knitterhood I am sharing my Gathered Pullover. I've reached the shoulder shaping on the back and am hoping this sweater will make me happy like Oh Baby has.
Have fun with your knitting buds. Can't wait to see that finished Rivulets. It's in my queue, but it looks so daunting for me.
ps. Leo did NOT attend the Birkie this year. He is still considered a bit bonkers.
Hope you had fun knitting with the crew today!
