When we were at the ocean I developed a love of knitting that bordered on obsession. I began work on my first big person sweater (a Cobblestone for Pete), and cast off my first little person sweater for a friend's sweet baby girl. I brought a camp chair and spend my days sitting in the sand knitting away each day. It was my sanity at times. The kids, just over the top of my knitting played contentedly while I meditated away the hours to the click-click-click over the tempo of the waves.
The baby sweater I cast off was the "In Threes" baby cardigan. For those of you who are on Ravelry the pattern is here. I ditched the detail stitches on the yoke in place of some handspun yarn details elsewhere. The fabric covered buttons I made from a remnant of quilting fabric from another close friend's blessingway a couple of years ago. I love this little sweater so much and can't wait to see a wee red head sporting it around town some day.
Since coming home I cast on (and off) a quick knit of a new fall hat. (The Ravelry pattern is here.) I am loving the teensy cables on the band and the loose spiraled top. I cast it off last night and lay awake wondering what I was going to cast on today. Seriously. Obsessed.
