~ What I'm Knitting:
- Finished Easy Baby Cardigan, and now am working on a matching bonnet out of the leftover yarn!
- Cast on (and tore out 3 times) the Raindrop Shawl by Renee Strouts out of Knit Picks Gloss Sock Yarn. Yarn cost me $3.99 a skein, and I bought 3 skeins so my wedding shawl will cost me about $12! Way cheaper than buying a veil!
- Cast on a pair of simple cabled socks with Knit Picks Stroll in Eggplant.
