Baby knitting

I’ve taken a bit of a break from thrumming and from my dad’s sweater to make a few things for a baby shower we’re going to this weekend. I made some little socks, and I’m making a hat to go with them:

I’m also working on a Haiku for the baby (of unknown gender), using up some leftovers from Mark’s King Charles Brocade sweater. I’m having trouble getting a good picture of this, and it doesn’t help that it’s a grey day here. This is the best I can do, and it doesn’t show the pattern off very well — but here’s the body and the beginnings of the sleeves:

I also acquired some new yarn and a new book at Lettuce Knits last night, but I can’t start that project until the baby gifts are done, so I’ll show them off later.

I handed in a draft of my first chapter yesterday! There’s still work to be done on it, but the bulk of it is done, I think. I hope. If my supervisor agrees… So I can get started on the next chapter. Fun, fun, fun!

That’s awesome about your thesis chapter!! Good luck with it. It’s encouraging to see other people moving along with that stuff.

The socks are definitely adorable. I was sick and couldn’t make it last night. I made the haiku and ran out of yarn for the sleeves, a long-discontinued yarn. Beware that I think it takes more yarn than recommended. It’s a fun sweater to knit and cries out for cute buttons.
