This week has seen me working on two baby cardigans at once! I'm 'sharing' the size 10 (3.25mm) needles between the two patterns, which isn't strictly necessary as there are another two pairs in my mum's needle bag, but doing it this way makes me work on both and not just do the easy and quick one to the neglect of the slower, more complex design with the finer yarn as I have to make sure that the right guage needles are free at the right time.
I've got almost one sleeve done on the lemon piece. I do like this one - both the snuggly yarn (texture AND colour) and the pattern, but it takes a fair bit longer, of course. I've 30 rows left to do on this sleeve now. The first of the two balls of yarn is coming to an end and I'm beginning to get concerned that there'll be enough! I've decided not to even attempt matching mittens as I'm sure there won't be enough yarn for those.
I've also started this green version of the white one I've already done. This one is a size larger and, wouldn't you know it, the back is actually larger than the lemon back even though the lemon one is a size larger again! Go figure, as you American ladies say!=) Anyway, I plan to decorate this one with purple trims and flowers but, as it's a larger size, I doubt I'll have enough yarn for bootees as well, so I'll just settle for mittens this time.
That's all for this week, I'm afraid!
