First things first, the winner of my review copy of 60 Quick Knit Baby Essentials is Linda Emery, who has been emailed. Thanks to everyone who left a comment to be entered in the giveaway.
In Ropewalk news, I have one sleeve completed, and I set it into the armhole and sewed up the side seam on one side.
And I have a good chunk of the second sleeve completed.
So this will be a finished item by the weekend.
So . . . what’s next?
You may recall that I taught one of my colleagues to knit last summer. Jennifer has been making great progress and has knit all sorts of things, including a pair of toe-up socks. She is just finishing up a project so I have encouraging her to take on a sweater. We decided we’ll both make the same sweater: Boxy, by Joji Locatelli.
We are both doing the seamed version — me because, well, you know how I feel about seams in sweaters. Jennifer, so she can learn how to seam a sweater.
Jennifer is making her Boxy from Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in the “Dust Bowl” colorway.
I am making mine in Handmaiden Mini Maiden in the “Polar Sea” colorway.
We have both done our gauge swatches, so we’ll be ready to cast on at a moment’s notice!
