Back at it

I've finished the back piece of the Fingers sweater, and completed the ribbing for the front. I'm trying to decide if I want to figure out how to do the sleeves in the round, or if I should just knit them flat and seam them up as per the pattern. The yarn is knitting up nice and soft, and I think that the sizing is big enough that it will be great for the baby this winter.

Worst Blogger Ever

Let's just get it out there - it has been months since I updated. There was quite a stretch there where I was either asleep, at work, or throwing up, and my knitting and blogging have suffered. Yes, gestation can be rough on the hobbies.

Work is still hell, but I am no longer falling asleep at 8:00 (I'm up 'til 9:30, woo!), and have just cast a little sweater for my wee child-to-be, in honor of today's discovery that we are having another baby girl. It's Julie's Itchy Fingers from the Yarn Girls Guide to Kid Knits. I found a cute pic of a finished one at Janet Knits. I'm using some multi-hued Berroco Lullaby in blues and purples.

As I was started the ribbing at the bottom of the first piece, and watching the Olympics, I remembered how much I like doing this. Bring on the tiny knits!
