Knitting content

Yup, I've actually been knitting. I found a cute little preemie hat pattern yesterday. I probably would have had it done last night, but it isn't easy to knit and type at the same time. hehe

Since I no longer have the excuse of not having time to get to the hospital to drop off baby thing, I figured I might as well make some things up with all the baby yarn I have laying around. The hat is made with Red Heart Baby Soft sport weight yarn. The color is 8001 White Twinkle. In person it has a kind of pink tinge to it. I figure they will use it for a girl. I think I have some blueish baby yarn somewhere.

I'm very close to finishing the first skein of the blue alpaca on the scarf. I would have finished the skein today, but I had to frog about 5 rows. I forgot a decrease and didn't notice the extra stitch for a while. I figure I'll need to use at least one more skein. That will leave me enough for a shawl. No clue which one I'll do. Lord knows I have tons of shawl patterns saved. hehe

I really need to do a rectangular shawl that I can wear around. Something kind of plain in a dk weight yarn. I want something warm but not heavy. I can always crochet on a nice lacy edge on a plain garter stitch rectangle. Not sure what yarn I would use though. I do have some light yellow yarn I got from Goodwill. I'm thinking it might be cotton. I'm not sure really what weight it is.

The whole shawl thing is just contemplation of course. I still have a shawl sitting in a bag with the edge not even half done yet. It is way too bright and lacy for every day wear. Plus there is the matter of the 3 sweaters I'm still trying to work on. hehe I have been working on Alishar. I think I got 5 or 6 rows done today. I'm not sure if I've posted a picture of it yet. I'll have to take a scan of it one of these days.

Anyways, it's about time for me to get to bed. I so hate getting up at 4am. sigh
