Chicks and Knitting Plans
The chicks are out, not real chicks! The chicks my sister made for me. I've lined them up on the window sill right where I can see them while I sit and knit. Decorating my house for spring has slowly evolved into a fun activity. Thanks to my sister, I have many new items to display here and there.
Have you read Bella Grace? If not, maybe the next time you are in a Barnes and Noble you can flip through the magazine and see if it's for you. I love the photography and the inspirational words that are held within the pages.
My nephew is expecting a baby (you know what I mean, he and his girlfriend!). I usually knit blankets, but I am leaning towards a baby sweater, the top down one from Elizabeth Zimmermann. I've knit it before here and here. I'll do a swatch...wait a minute...who am I kidding, I'll start the sweater with this blue yarn and see if I like the way it knits up. If not, I'll dig through my stash once again. Swatching for an adult sweater is must. Babies grow and so whatever I make will fit a baby eventually.
