Progress!

I finally remembered to bring home my card reader yesterday so I can show you some pics. I'm really happy with the progress I've made lately. In fact, it seems that I've become more productive since I added Rogue to the list :)

Speaking of Rogue, here's where she is right now:

I'm using Lamb's Pride Top of the Lamb which is a single ply wool. Can you see the lines along the right side of the knit stitches? I've been reading about it and learned that single ply yarn can cause that. I've also read that after a couple of washings it should relax. I hope so. While it's not horrible it gives the fabric more of a texture than I'd like.

As for the Cabled & Ribbed sweater, I've been switching between it and Rogue:

I'm about 6-8 inches from completing the front!

As far as baby stuff goes, thanks to all of you who sent me suggestions. I'm going to look for something acrylic or cotton/acrylic so it's both easy care and lighter weight. Christine - I love the whirly baby hat! While I don't think I'm going to make up hats for these 2 late spring babies I've bookmarked it for colder weather births. I love the swirl pattern the hat made on top.

You're making really good progress on your sweaters. You might consider a tank top pattern in The Baby Knits Book by Debbie Bliss for a baby gift. The smallest size is for 3-6 months, and the pattern works up fast. The yarn called out in the pattern is a cotton/wool blend which is machine washable. A picture of the pattern is here: http://www.theknittinggarden.com/db-babyknits.htm.

I noticed those lines on the fabric when I knit with Lamb's Pride but didn't know what caused it. Interesting... Your Rogue is looking good.
