So originally I had planned to make a super secret baby sweater for Heidi's coming minion Sophie. Baby sweater it is - secret it is not. So if you ever think to tell me a secret and want no one to know about it? You may be better off tattoo'ing it on Britney's asscheek. I'm a big ole
blabbermouth yessirree. I am working on Louisa Harding's Primrose Sweater from Tadpoles and Tiddlers. It is also my project for the Stranded Colorwork KAL - two birds with one stone is a good thing, and baby items are small. The size of the sweater does not however reduce the number of ends that will be weaved in once I seam this baby up. If I were to be crazy enough to knit this again - I'd be doing steeks all the way. Having to do the separate right and left fronts are currently a pain in my ample ass.
I chose colors that were a little more dark than what the original calls for, which I like really. My stitches are coming out reasonably even and blocking will fix all the tiny imperfections as well.
See those loose ends? This is how much I must love Heidi. In fact - don't tell Mr. Heidi but - the baby is mine! *Michael Jackson spin*
I am hoping to get it done this weekend - but its not looking good for our raven haired heroine. Mr Bird and I are going away for the weekend next week to Napa Valley and staying at this nice spa (and bringing my doggy too!) for an early birthday - so hopefully if I cant get it done by this weekend - I'll have it done before Mamasan pops out the kid.
All Christmas knitting is being ignored. What do you mean I can't get three pairs of socks done after the sweater is finished?
