Right now, I am working on the Balloon Baby Pants using Ginny's notes. It gave me an excuse to order from Quince and Co. I have been eyeballing the yarn for a long while, but didn't have a project in mind. The yarn is exquisite and was here in only a week. That is really quick considering that I live in Canada. Now I just have to persevere through the ribbing. Isn't knitting ribbing absolutely monotonous? You are supposed to knit it in the round, but my needles were too long. I will just do the ribbing flat and then work the rest on larger needles (after adding stitches) in the round.
I must admit, that while I should be there for the duration of the class, I find it hard to be there the whole time. I can sit with her, but I need to keep my hands busy or I go batty. I am only allowed to join in the conversation for the last 20 minutes of class. So, I just sit beside her with my spinning wheel while the little boys play.
I finally took the spinning wheel class and have learned how to use my Ladybug. I hope to use this yarn for a baby garment. Spinning is very relaxing and challenging. I can't wait to knit this up. Any suggestions? I have about 100g with a length of 92 yards. Something for a baby using a bulky yarn?
Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to check and see what everyone is knitting and reading over at Ginny's blog.
