Knitting with Camel is Yummy

I've been slacking on knitting. The olympics really took a lot out of me. Okay. I'm totally lying. My game got resurfaced and now I'm allowed to pay the xbox again. *hangs head in shame*.

I have 99% of a baby sweater done. I just need buttons and I'm really lazy about that. I'm not sure if I should make the booties to match, or some cute wrist warmers for the mommy in the same colours. She does live in SF and they might be handy. Obviously I'm stalling on the booties. They are done with duplicate stitch and I'm not too into that but not sure if I have the attention span to include the chart into the booties. I'm a sloppy stitcher.

So I've been working on little fingerless wrist warmers for myself to see how the camel yarn I have knits up. I love it so far. And after weighing the first one, I probably could have made something bigger. Oh well. Stupid yardage requirements. I didn't want to spend another $15 for being a few yards short. I had to get the pattern via the wayback machine because it was on magknits. It gets confusing as you have to follow a pattern for half and a line count and change for half. The way it printed out it is on the wrong side of the page. Whoops. So paying attention is an issue. I brought it to a bbq last week and couldn't get much done with all the flipping and having 2 row counters. If I ever write a pattern, I'll write it out. I swear.

I really want to cast on for the Feb Lady Sweater next, but I should knit something for punk baby or something for purple baby. I got yarn for a sweater and cute maryjane booties for that kidlet too. Or a coffee cozy. I have to talk myself into any new project it seems. Maybe I'll just take over the world instead. Hah!

Oh we totally both have the Feb Lady Sweater on the list for next. :-) I am trying to select a yarn to knit it in.

In black, of course.
