Over the weekend, Emily and I made our way to Sip and Knit to return some yarn, get some needles and unexpectedly make a lot of ladies' day. The store was pretty busy and she was a hit with everyone we encountered.
My friend, April, is expecting a little baby girl in the next month or two and after receiving such a wonderful gift set from Adrienne for Emily, I figured I'd try to duplicate it. While at the store, I called Nicole to double-check how much yarn Adrienne had said she used and she reminded me that Adrienne had run into some problems with this particular pattern (Miss Dashwood). I took this under advisement, but bought the yarn anyway. When I got home I looked up the pattern and it turns out that it's not too different from the cupcake hat I'd made for Nicole - so I got started.
Here's where I'm at. Something has gone horribly wrong with the number of stitches I should have, but I've made it to the bobble row and the bobbles are turning out okay so I may just keep trucking.
I've also been steadily picking up ye olde French Market bag whenever my hands get a free moment. We're well into the contrasting color stripe.
And today I put one box of Fuschia Rit dye to use with one plain jane package of Gerber cloth diapers (i.e. the world's best burp clothes) and a bunch of rubber bands to make some super-girly burp clothes. Now I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that I didn't permanently dye my washing machine hot pink - Wayne will be none to happy if his not-cycling clothes come out hot pink.
In sock news - My Jaywalker has been sadly ignored. However, the yarn for my Secret Sock Party Buddy's socks has arrived, so I will start that one soon. But I won't post pics so that it stays secret.
