I suppose it was coming. I finished off the slouchy hat, and I knew we were going to be in church, so I decided I’d grab a copy of
Rosemary & Bay on my way out the door. I had the remainder of a skein of Twizzle left. I figured I’d get started on the yoke, come home, and find some suitable yarn to act as a contrast color and fill out the yardage needed for Rosemary & Bay.
You see, I’ve begun knitting for the Kiwi (little turtle).
Have I swatched? (well, I have the entire hat to act as a swatch, so yes, kinda. I have not swatched with the Attire, recently, although I have my old swatch from designing with it, so qualified yes).
Am I getting gauge? (well… no. But it’s for a baby, and I’m making the largest size and we’ll see how it works. I’m going to launch myself into a mistake I can see coming. It’s the baby fumes.)
Still, after casting on for the yoke, I’m in the swing of things here, and I wanted to invite ya’ll to knit along. Baby clothes are always needed. And if they aren’t needed, well that’s what a trosseau’s for, right?
Here I am casting on for this version of Rosemary & Bay. If you’d like to get the pattern, I’ll be having it on sale from now thru the end of the month. Simply enter in “littleturtle” for 40% off.
