The baby, he is growing.
So, I made him another hat. Same pattern, with an extra increase round, an extra body round, and a slight mod to the brim so it wouldn't be super-ruffly. Ryan was disappointed that I didn't leave it as a beanie, but I'm trying to keep the sun off my son, not make him look stylish. That just happens naturally.
In other knitting news, I joined a swap on Ravelry, right before I discovered that babies break the bank. However, I've pressed on, and managed to avoid overspending. As it turns out I have lots of things around the house that suit the theme. The theme is Rainbow, which boils down to picking a color that your partner likes and filling a package with things that are all that color. Pictures will have to wait, to keep things secret, but I had a lot of fun picking them out/making them.
Some other things I'm working on, since it's work in progress Wednesday:
A 'whimsical' shawl, as my husband described it, made up of various sizes of crocheted stars, from Austentatious Crochet by Melissa Horozewski.
Pictured before I finished all the stars. Now they're all made, and about 1/3 assembled, and it's a daunting thought that I'll ever have all the ends woven in someday. I hate it with great intensity, but hopefully I'll mellow out once it's finished and actually wear it.
I'm also making myself a purse out of granny squares.
Speaking of weaving in ends....
