Update and the low down

Posted by Nanc

A while back, I blogged about knitting baby blankets for my friend K’s twins. The one binky started out fine. I like the pattern and the yarn is great to work with. But… [y’all knew that was coming] It was going to take quite a bit more yarn that I had purchased (and it’s not cheap yarn).

So instead of making two $70 blankets [eep!], I decided to pare down and knit up some sweater sets.

So what used to be this,

is now this.

Now you may ask, what in-the-sam-hell is that second, albeit more angular item? Well, if all goes right it’ll be a match to this other sweater to the right. It’s the baby Einstein sweater from Sally Melville’s The Knit Stitch book.

I’ve got little baseball buttons to go on the light blue sweater, which compliment the football buttons on the denim blue sweater. And I plan on making some booties, hats and what-not for the boyz.

And what’s the status on those lil’ men?… They were born on the Ides of March; healthy, happy, and hungry.

And a quick shout-out of thanks to the StitchNBitch group yesterday, who made me feel great for ooh’ing and ahh’ing over my handiwork. Y’all rock!
