now contains actual knitting!
(I have no idea why the picture is sideways. Tilt your head.)
I finished up a little hat and set of booties for a friend to gift at a baby shower this weekend. I used the little hat pattern from Last Minute Knitted Gifts, and the booties came from Weekend Knitting (the easy booties). Friend was thrilled to receive them. They are done up in sporty red Cascade Pima Tencel, which is soft and affordable. It does seem to split more than it should. The set is done in red because Future Mom and Dad are Chinese, and red is the most auspicious color for the Chinese.
Next up is some work on Retro Rib socks. For some reason, size 0 needles seem much smaller than size 1 needles, so the progress hasn't been swift.
