1. Absolutely Precious Baby Sweater - I ran out of yarn. I can't believe it, with just rows to go on the 2nd sleeve. That's what I get for stashbusting. I was using a slightly used 6oz skein of Caron Simply Soft Light Country Blue. The pattern calls for 6 oz for the small sweater AND the hat. I figured I had enough yarn for just the sweater. WRONG! When I first ran out last night I was thinking that I could probably pull out the sweater edging and use that for the sleeve and then redo the edging in some coordinating color. But now as I look at it I realize I have done only 7 of the 18 rows on the sleeve. The edging is a round of sc and a round of (sl st, ch1). I would hate to frog the edging and then discover I don't have enough yarn. Besides, what is an appropriate contrasting color for this? I think I had better hope the "no dye lot" yarn gods are on my side and go try to find a "matching" skein. Only thing is, I bought this yarn over 18 months ago.
2. Seraphina Shawl - I finished it last night! Woo hoo for me!! I decided to give this shawl to a person who is significantly shorter than I am. Hence, the shawl was basically done and I just needed to crochet a few more rows to finish the color striping pattern in the darkest blue. Then I edged it, weaved in all the ends, took photos, labeled, wrapped and gifted it to my ds's Kindergarten teacher this morning (in honor of Teacher Appreciation week - last week). So here it is.. done in Joann's Sensation Rainbow Boucle 'Dark Blues', with a 7.0mm Boye K hook.
3. Sideways Shell Baby Afghan - I started this last night instead of returning to the Drops Top as my dh had informed me over the weekend that a co-worker had just brought home their newly adopted baby. I went stashdiving and came up with a pound of this yarn - an acrylic, baby/sport weight, pastel variegated mill end. I thought this pattern would be quick & easy and so far I think it's working up nicely. Are the colors too feminine for a baby boy?
So... tomorrow I go on a yarn hunt. Today I'll try to whip up a baby blanket and then get back to the Drops Top.... Unfortunately, over 5 loads of unfolded laundry are calling my name first...
