A friend at work is expecting her first baby next month and this is for him. It's a Lion Brand pattern and I wish I had knitted it from their yarn, not substitute. I'm sure she'll be happy with it, but I'm not as pleased as I wish I were.
Another gift from fun stuff I bought at Imagiknit in San Francisco. The yarn is Jawool from Lang Yarns. So many of the computer-dyed yarns are harsh on the feet. I still think Lorna's Laces is the nicest but her rainbow dyed colors tend to clump up in the socks. I like the hand of this yarn and am pleased with the results.
I am especially happy with this sweater knit from Elaine by Schaeffer. My LYS doesn't carry it so I didn't feel bad about my purchase. It's a thick and thin wool, and one skein makes the sweater. This is my second baby sweater from it. Chrissie would like some buttons, so I think I'll just put a couple at the top. Who's this for??
In Praise of Grilled Cheese and Wool Socks!
