The weather has been VERY cold here 2 degrees this am. There's blowing drifting snow with white outs, schools have been closed etc. My husband gets out just long enough to plow all the neighorhood driveways and remove snow from around the fire hydrants, what would we do without him?
anyway, this has allowed me to knit and knit, here is the 2nd Cabled Baby Jacket and a hat to match! Love this pattern! oh and I forgot the buttons yet again! I guess I was so anxious to cast on another baby sweater!
This yarn is not the softest, so in the washer it goes with the hat hoping it softens up!
So I cast on this fun top down design last night, it goes so fast!
I should have enough yarn left for the bonnet and booties.
The pattern is in this book: First Steps in Knitting by American School of Needlework, pattern by Mary Thomas.
I do not work the yo, K2 tog beading row ( supposed to thread thru ribbon), I just plain knit the 3 rows, oh and I add a buttonhole on the 2nd row.
I am leaving for Miami in the morning, 1 week of sun and warmth, we hope anyway, after this past week we are READY!
