There was something hidden in my mailbox, probably all weekend.
These are glass circular knitting needles made by the very talented folks over at Glasspens, Sheila and Michael Ernst. Sheila is a very talented knitter, and listened closely to our feedback about what kind of needle tips and cable joins we wanted. I am so excited to have these needles, now I need to cast on for a project that needs a size 5 needle! Maybe some lace...
Now that the DFBB is done,
I've been wanting to start on the Placket Neck Sweater that everyone is knitting for babes. I borrowed the book from the library and made a working copy of the pattern, and now I can't remember which book it is. One Skein? Knitted Gifts? (and it seemed like everyone was knitting this sweater, but now that I am looking for it, I can't find any links!) Anyway, my youngest, for whom I want to knit the Mystery sweater, doesn't want it. He doesn't want a black sweater with really cute red baseball guy head buttons. I just don't get it.
So instead of casting on for The Ungrateful, I picked up another UFO:
For some reason, all of the kids want this one. One sleeve down, one to go.
