This is a baby sweater I am working on for the new grandson of a friend in TN. :) I’m using Caron Simply Soft, which is pretty soft and an acrylic so no special care will be needed. I purchased this pattern on Patternworks . It’s such a cute set. I am only knitting the sweater and hat. Ammon is about 3 months old but I’m making it to fit 6 to 9 months so he can wear it all winter. It’s an easy pattern (most baby sweaters are), and because they are for babies, they don’t take a long time to make. This one I’ve only had time to knit on during my lunch hr but I should have it finished by next week end. I always think I am going to have time to knit on things during the week-end, but I never find the time, I’m not sure why I always think I’ll find the time to knit on the week-end, sigh, an eternal optimist I guess :P.
I’m about 1/2 way through with my 2nd spool of the baby Alpaca roving. Sometime this week I should be able to ply it and have a finished skein. The singles feel so soft on the spool, I can hardly wait to get it plyed.
