big bad baby blanket progress

well, the bbb blanket is 10 inches long. only 4 more inches to go until the half-way point. it's not taking too terribly long to knit up, so it will definitely be done in time for a shower gift. i'm hoping to have it half completed by the middle of july.

today's progress

the daisy baby sweater is done. nadine and i went to hancock fabrics yesterday and got the cutest little pink flower buttons.





all in all, i'm pretty pleased with my first knit clothing piece. i wish i would've used softer yarn, and there are a few small imperfections that i'm not exactly thrilled with.

today's progress

daisy baby sweater
pattern from knitty.com
i've been working on this once for about a week. at first, i was just using it as an opportunity to use up some green yarn i have and to try knitting an actual article of clothing. however, as i've been working on it, it's started to look really cute. i won't be putting daisies or snakes on it, but may add some leaves if i'm just so inclined.

i just need to knit about 8 more rows on the second sleeve, stitch the pieces together, and get some buttons for the front. if all goes well, i'll have everything but the buttons done tonight.

::update 6:54pm
the sweater is done: blocked and everything. now, i just need to buy and affix three buttons.

and so it begins...

since i've found myself a bit obsessed with knitting as of late, i thought i'd start a little blog to talk about my creations and moan about all the problems i encounter.
