I've gone kinda nuts with knitting baby/toddler sweaters. Some of these will go to Nora, others will just go in my gift pile for when somebody has a baby next.
First of all, I finished the Raindrops sweater by tincanknits :)
Next I cast on the Baby Surprise Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmermann. I've wanted to knit this in ages to see just how the magic worked and finally got my hands on the pattern. I wasn't disappointed - it was a fun and quick knit and pure brilliance in how it all came together as it went from this...
And since by this time I'd accepted that I was firmly on a toddler-sweater-knitting kick, I immediately turned around and cast on the Striped Beach Sweater by Nikki van der Car. This is the 5th sweater I've knit by her, and I've loved them all :) I'm knitting the 2T size so it'll hopefully fit Nora come winter.
But since July is drawing to an end I've also focused on (finally) getting my July socks done for the "Just One More Row 12 in 16" challenge. Toe-up, no-purl monkey socks for a friend of mine. I didn't have quite enough yarn, so ended up making the cuff ribbing black instead. I hope she'll like them.
