Yes, finally pictures

  • I haven't gotten anywhere on getting the last little thing done on the baby bolero but once I get the stitches picked up, it will go fast I'm sure. It has a little shawl collar ... isn't it cute?

    It was relatively easy as long as you take the time to read the directions (my downfall most of the time!) Here is a close up of the edging...I guess it isn't too clear but you get the idea.

    I used Sirdar Snuggly DK and so far, have only used one skein. I'm not sure if I'll get through the collar with what I have left but it looks possible. The pattern calls for 2. I think the pattern is adorable, but the only thing I suggest is to read carefully...some of the decrease rows get a bit tricky if you're not paying attention.
  • Other knitting news: I am working on some HandJive Knits socks. I really like the yarn but the dye is coming off on my fingers. I haven't heard anyone else mention this so I am going to call the shop I got it from to see what they say. The yarn is definitely beautiful. I am still playing with getting the cast on right so I can't really take a picture yet. I guess I'm just enjoying knitting and not too worried about how quickly I get things finished.
