I've got several projects on the needles these days and not many coming off the needles, but I'm knitting a few stitches every day, which makes me happy.
I finally (finally!) sewed buttons on the Baby Sophisticate (practically a year later). It's made of baby alpaca, so it's soft and squishy and should stretch easily around his round belly. I think little J is going to look sufficiently old-mannish in his shawl-collared cardigan this fall. Now he just needs some slippers to shuffle around the house in and a book of crossword puzzles to carry around. Our little old man.
I've also been chugging away on my Larch Cardigan after taking a summer break from it. I finished the fronts and backs, seamed the shoulders, and am working on a sleeve. I keep measuring the sweater and myself, and I think it will fit. If not, I'll block it to fit my post-baby body. I'm wearing this cardigan come fall!
And finally, I actually finished a cabled hat for J, but after weaving in ends, I discovered it's too short. I think I'll pick up stitches around the bottom and knit an inch of ribbing. I hope that will work. Otherwise I'll just save it for a baby gift.
