What IS that???

What on Earth could I possibly be knitting??

Well, I'd love to tell you . . . but I can't. It's a secret. I'd love to hear your guesses though!!  (And the more outlandish, the better.  Who couldn't use a good laugh??)

One secret revealed . . .

It's hard to blog when you haven't been knitting much. It's even harder to blog when you finally pick up your knitting again but are working on surprise gifts!!  Luckily, my secret knitting that got finished up in Cape May had been gifted and can now be revealed!

Looks very familiar, doesn't it?  Except it's not a February Lady Sweater . . . it's a

Baby Sweater on Two Needles from Knitter's Almanac
Cast On: 17 June 2010
Completed: 27 June 2010
Yarn: Cotton-Ease in Violet
Needles: US6 (4mm) circs

This sweater is a bit overdue.  The sweet little baby was born almost three months ago to my friend Kerri, who I've referred to before as the Yarn Harlot of diabetes blogs.  (She really is though, and you guys are the only ones who understand what that means.  I fear that diabetes bloggers think I'm making some kind of derogatory statement instead of paying a high compliment.  Poor non-knitters.)

I found the perfect buttons at the yarn shop in Cape May. Aren't they sweet?

Oh how I love this pattern.  I decided knit the sleeves in the round, just like the adult version . . . so yay, no seaming!! And the baby version goes much quicker than the adult one!  It seems SO small though.  I fear the little baby has outgrown it before I even got it in the mail.  Are babies really this tiny?

And now, I'm back to secret knitting.  Looks like I'm going to have to figure out some creative ways to blog over the next few weeks.

When you can't show your knitting . . .

it helps to knit somewhere with a good view.  Because at least you can show pictures of WHERE the knitting was done!

My knitting mojo returned with a vengeance while on our little anniversary get-away to Cape May.  And why not?  There was a great knitting store.  I was reading a fun knitting mystery to inspire me.  And there was the comfy porch swing to knit on while watching horse-drawn carriages wind their way through the town of painted Victorian houses.

And no cooking and cleaning to be done! Nothing like days of slackerism in a beautiful place to get some great knitting progress done. And what exactly did I knit? Well, I should be able to show you that very soon.
