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.

Beautiful little sweater! It's sure to be treasured as a family heirloom. KC wasn't up for modeling?

Karen, that is an adorable baby sweater! We took my parents out to dinner before a Yarn Harlot book signing. They totally did not understand why I wanted to be there an hour early. They understood when we got there though!

Just so delicate and lovely. I am taking some time to read blogs instead of posting lately. Thanks for your concern.
