Second FO of the Year
I'm not really a pink fan, but I am a sucker for this dark pink/electric-y magenta color.
Pattern: Spring Garden Tee
Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold Cool Wool (50% wool/50% cotton)
This was a great pattern. Top down--my favorite. I really enjoyed the way it came together. The neck is knit back and forth for quite a while before being joined in the round. The little ruffly lace sleeves are a nice touch to break up the monotony that can sometimes be an issue with stockinette sweaters.
The only problem? I knit a size "2" thinking it would fit her since, well, she's 1 years old--and normally size 12 clothing (at least commercial) never fits a baby (at least my chunky monkey children) that is of that age. It's usually too small. Stupid me. Commercial and handmade are obviously different!
So this sweater will probably not fit her until NEXT spring.
Now the question becomes, will I be able to remember to take pictures of her in it next year?
And speaking of pictures--during Baby Sister's birthday "party" my point and shoot camera's flash decided to go belly up. So now I'm in the market for a moderately priced point-and-shoot camera.
Cell phone cameras are nice for stuff on the go, but I'd like something a bit more real. So hit me with your favorite point-and-shoot suggestions!
