FO, FO, Fib!

Things chez stash are, shall we say, a little crazy. A big move, me leaving my job (for the indefinite future, yay more time with the baby), a long knitting-filled road trip to get... well, we don't actually have a place in Monterey yet but let's just gloss over that shall we k thanks what was I saying a long knitting-filled road trip to get to the Monterey penninsula! I'm sure that once we're on the road it will be fun and relaxing and a great break for the family, but right now things are absolutely bananas around here.

There was some finishing, though.



The hoodie would like a hug.







Please ignore the weird wrinkles, it sat in the knitting bag for a few days before the photo shoot.



It's all folded up and ready to go to Miz N., who will need it approximately NEVER because your friendly neighborhood New England weather has secretly been replaced with the Deep South Heat of Hell. :) Nah, I'm only kidding. I'm sure it will be cold here again, and she'll be toasty and stylish and geeky, all at the same time.

Pattern: Striped hooded top from original Baby Cashmerino book
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, 4 balls purple, 2 balls fuschia
Needles: US3
Buttons: Oh my gracious cute
Baby: Fiesty and geeky, like her parents
Modifications: Just the stripes, ma'am.

The leaf lace shawl is finished and beautiful and perfect and I haven't spent some quality time with the camera, sadly. I've also started a lap blanket out of Berroco Ultra Alpaca (yum!) for my Grammie, so I owe you pictures of that too.

Wish me luck!

That is cuuuuuuuute. I love the nautical look of it. Nice touch with the buttons!
