My needles have been busy this past week (not having my daycare child for the month of January has proven good for knitting, apparently). I am currently in the knitting throes of a toddler sweater (not pictured) for Coralee’s homeschool teacher, the adorable pictured Baby Duck Booties for Harmon before his tiny feet finally decide to elongate (I completely forgot about my Quince & Co kit for these until I stumbled upon it cleaning out my closet), & a second pair of Balloon Baby Pants for Harmon in Quince & Co Chickadee in the colors Delft, Frost, & Carrie’s Yellow. I’m planning the yellow for the band & cuffs and the Delft/Frost for stripes. I went with a size smaller needle this go-around & cast on less waist stitches than his Christmas pair. The ribbed waist in that first pair is proving too loose on his non-existent belly.
I’m currently reading my dad’s manuscript for his first novel. Isn’t that exciting???? He writes a monthly column for a Midwest hunting magazine & has had a short story or two published previously, but a whole novel is quite a feat! Perhaps someday you will be able to find it on your local bookseller’s shelf. 🙂
