Yarn Along

As always, I'm knitting along with Ginny at Small Things on Wednesdays.

It looks like I’m well on my way to a handmade Easter after all.  (Insert a big YAY! here.)  Nathan's bunny from Itty-Bitty Toys is done:

And Nathan’s spring cardigan is just a sewn-in sleeve away from completion:

And I don’t know why, but I was feeling confident enough to cast on my self-imposed Sock of the Month Club socks for April (in the first photo, with the bunny)—they’re Ribbed Ribbon Socks from Wendy Johnson’s Socks from the Toe Up.  I had meant to design socks with leaves on them for April, but I just don’t have the time to put into them now and I didn’t want to leave this beautiful spring green sock yarn for next spring.  (My self-imposed socks of the month are inspired by the seasons, just like most of my other crafts.)  The ribbons on these socks remind me of little spring leaves, so they’re perfect for right now.

My work on the socks will probably bleed into May, but that’s okay because I don’t have a lot of knitting planned yet for May.  Yet.  I’ll wait at least until the next Yarn Along to bring up my recent Knit Picks order, which should arrive any day now.  (I’m insane, and I know my mom is shaking her head as she reads this.)

I’m reading the Friday Night Knitting Club and Nathan’s been carrying around Snuggle Up, Sleepy Ones for a week.  He looooooves his animals, and likes to point and say right there so we'll tell him what each animal is, even though he knows; he just can’t say it himself.  Yet.

Good knitting,
