One and a Half Finished Objects!

See, I told you all I would be back later with a finished object...

Here is the baby sweater for Satomi's little girl - who isn't due until September and I am pleasantly chuffed that I have finished it so early. The pattern was designed by the Yarn Harlot herself and the pattern can be found at Knitty at http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer03/PATTdaisy.html if you are interested. I knit the sweater out of Plymouth's 'Oh My!' yarn (colour 13 - a pale aqua) - partly chosen because it was so soft it reminded me of stuffed animals for babies. I made the smallest size (6 months, I believe) and used 4 balls. I still have one ball untouched, so I may knit up a quick hat to go along with the sweater. I'm not sure why the left side (right in the picture) is curling a bit like that - hopefully it will get in line once the sweater is washed.



And here is the half finished object - a single sock knit out of Knitpick's Dancing sock yarn. I like how it pooled and unintentionally striped - and have resigned myself to the fact that the pair-to-be will most likely be a fraternal twin.

Cute sweater! So stylish too. And great job on the sock! At least your sock HAS a twin...mine is an only child!

I'm still working on my mini-cable socks out of the dancind you sent me. And they did the same thing along the cuff. identically. I don't think you'll have a problem getting the second to look similar if not exact. The yarn finds it's own rhythm pretty quickly.
