To save you another picture of The Life of Pi and stripey-shawl-in-progress, I give you: Baby Fists on Wool. That blanket dates back to pre-Kaya times (and is in need of a little repair from all that hard work of baby warming). Batu is wearing his stripey pebble vests (here is the ravelry link for this baby staple).
That shawl is a little slow going. I blame the fact that two skeins of lace yarn don’t like to travel. They tend to tangle up, and in the end I spend more time untangling than actually knitting. I haven’t really left the house in days though – not sure what else to blame!
In the meantime, I am very tempted to cast on a parallel project. You know, thicker yarn, bigger needles, likes to travel, instant gratification.
I am going to try and be disciplined however, and finish all those other neglected projects that I have kicking around before I start a new one: There is this jumper for the husband has spent the past year waiting for sleeves and a collar.
Also, Kaya’s vest – less than ideal yarn and zigzag drove me to distraction, but maybe alternating with shawl would do the trick?
Happy Yarning Along!
