These weeks were joined since I was working on the same items throughout the two weeks.
Started 2 new baby knits. A Drops cardigan for a baptism gift I need Feb 26th and another Robin Hood for a new born.
The Drops Cardigan is one I have done twice before, so 3rd times a charm? And it is charming!!
Previously posted about, I just love this long sleeve version. And the dainty pearly cream buttons just make it so sweet. I love when things match. It’s the OCD in me.
This Robin Hood is also my 3rd one, and it just never gets old. I am thinking to try this with worsted weight and adjust the lengths to get a less bulky version next time. And there will be a next time!
I dropped off the sweater to the new family and the Dad, a coworker of Hubster’s, texted that they loved the sweater! Just hope it fits him next year, as he is much too tiny now.
With these prioritized items out of the way I turned to the UFOs and pulled out some color work mittens I needed to finish up. I was over halfway through the first outer mitt when I got back to them. I am hoping we still might have some cold weather for the recipient after I get them done.
Last, but not least, I got a request from my SIL who now lives in Wisconsin. She liked the Cloche I made our great-niece and wanted one. I had to admit I couldn’t upsize it properly so I found a pattern online. I told her I didn’t have that bright red left, but had a darker red available, and she said fine. So to avoid the color work I cast on the hat.
