Baby Stuff

Two baby things to share today:

My mom, Mary, just finished this cute little baby sweater...and maybe someday a baby will wear it!  For now, it's home is the shop.  It's the Sideways Sockyarn Baby Sweater, a clever little sweater written by Hyphen Boy Designs.  She used Mini Mochi in one of their new colorways, "Babyface", perfect for a tiny little sweater.

And here's my most recent project:  Baby Sweater on Two Needles (Practically Seamless), by Elizabeth Zimmerman.  EZ has been my knitting hero for a long, long time.  I've read all of her books from cover to cover.  I even have a quote from her on every receipt that comes out of my cash register:  "You are the boss of your knitting."  But I'm embarrased to say I've never actually knit any of her designs;  I guess I was just a bit intimidated.  I thought I'd start out small with this classic baby sweater from Knitter's Almanac.  And boy, it's fun.  She doesn't hold your hand through her patterns, but I've been able to figure it out so far.  I guess maybe I AM the boss of my knitting after all.  I'm using Boomerang.  Mmmm...Boomerang.

Those are both just wicked cute.  Nice work, you two!
