Nope-- not finished with the DNA scarf either. I'm making great progress, but it's a surprise Christmas gift for The Daughter (who wouldn't be caught dead looking at my blog), and I need to be working on something else when she's around. I figure I'm about halfway done-- a few inches past the start of the second skein of yarn. I was able to spend a few hours at Mosaic in Blacksburg last Friday with Gina and her crew. I purchased the first of the MadelineTosh Vintage for this project at Mosaic and I love to spend time there. Delightful
So, since I have 2 active projects, I clearly need to cast on for a third. Typical me. The baby's bunting is going to be part of a joint present for The Daughter's Friends' baby from The Daughter and me, so I need to appear to be working on it.
This one is going to require some prep work. I really need to check gauge, although there is some wiggle room in baby projects-- and this one is expected to be rather large (Mom and Dad are both rather tall). I also want to make sure I can steek before I start this, because I want to put a full-length zipper in, and steeking seems to be the best way to have clean lines and a minimum of bulk. So I will swatch, and then steek the swatch, and hope I survive the drama.
Don't want to lose this link to Jogless stripes in circular knitting. It is going to be very important when I start the Bunting.
So a couple of days of trying to get myself together before a work trip to Orlando next week. Should be fun-- and a guaranteed several hours of knitting time on the plane-- what to take... what to take....
