I'm finally starting the sweater I promised my brother a few months ago! I'm using the ribbed pullover pattern from Amy Singer's Knit Wit book. It should be fairly simple, although I always have trouble picking up stitches at the neck without making it look... messed up. I'm substituting a really soft cotton blend yarn for the wool that the pattern calls for and I love the color - a cool, ashy, brown.
It's been a while since I've started an ambitious knitting project, so I warmed up (and used up some leftover yarn) with this ice cream cozy. The pattern is also from Knit Wit and I've intended to make it every time I had leftover yarn for, oh, about two years! It turned out great, just the right size for a container of coconut sorbet!
And thanks to everyone for your nice comments about my fused-plastic bib! I really appreciate your feedback. I love visiting all of your blogs, too, and I'm glad we can share ideas and encouragment!
