I AM knitting!

I thought I'd share with you all what baby goodies are on my needles! First, is this Sweet Baby Cap. I am really close to finishing it. It may even happen tonight! :D

Next up are some longies for my darling daughter. I've tried several times to do longies, but always get messed up at the legs. Not this time though, I refuse! I'm using some Peace Fleece (don't know the colorway, it was a gift from my sil) for the waistband and cuffs, and Malabrigo Noviembre for the main part of the pants. I love this yarn!!!

And finally....I was traded some yarn today for garden veggies from our very own Val! This is some beautiful organic cotton...time for me to make a Presto for my wee one!

Tulip...almost PeaPod

Oh, my goodness...I've had the yarn for the Pea Pod for months now and keep having the urge to knit some other baby thing first, don't know why. A couple months ago, I knit this for a baby girl of a friend of my sister's.

The wonderful Tulip Cardigan from Dream in Color. I used Knit Picks yarn and needles for all-thinking that although the Dream in Color yarns are luscious and beautiful, I liked the larger variety of color from Knit Picks, whose Swish Superwash is also incredibly soft and superwash merino.

Anyway, I didn't follow the colorways described on the pattern but used my own. I liked the ones I picked and I thought the black really offset the softer colors-having a very slight "stained glass" effect...maybe. What do you think?

Now, although I have millions of projcts I'm currently working on, I think it's about time I started (and finished) my PeaPod set. Don't you think? LOL!

P.S. You can check out some of my other projects and patterns on my blog here: Sleepy Eyes Knitting.
