first of all, thanks for the advice on the applied i-cord. i did it before blocking. and speaking of that particular i-cord, here it is in its applied and then blocked form:
it’s a commissioned baptismal sweater for the same babe who gets the blanket mentioned below! i plan to publish the pattern some day. it’s made out of recycled sweater wool/angora and knit on size 5 needles at a gauge of 6 sts to the inch. in order to publish i think i will need to knit another one out of commercial yarn, so it may be a bit. this one is going to be in action this sunday… and i predict it will be a bit big on the 3 mo. old. we did a 6 mo. old size so it can be used with future children also. i love how it turned out! what a fun challenge.
now that we are heading into the darkest parts of the year, i was wondering if you all would do me the favor of keeping the cheer up with your recommendations! i read a lot of blogs- lately it has been a bit more skimming than reading, but that’s how it is. and now i’d like a bit of new inspiration… so i want to know what your blog is! and what particular blog you’ve been digging lately. if you don’t have your own blog, comment with just your currently most inspiring read. and while you’re at it, what do you like about that particular blog?
p.s. here’s jonah’s blanket. the pics are on my friend cheryl’s blog and the blanket itself is currently blocking on my bedroom floor.
p.p.s. a knitting/yoga friend found EZ’s autograph in a book at the public library. un-freaking-believable and unspeakably awesome. what to do!
p.p.p.s. can you tell i feel a bit absent from the blog? i have so much to say! i finally feel like i might be getting back in the swing of things over here. thanks for sticking with me through the crazy months.
p.p.p.p.s. you can also now become a fan of cosymakes on facebook.
