i'm pretty sure i'm not thinking straight. and even though i'm aware of that, i've decided to push through to do what is probably a fairly crazy idea. i've been knitting a fair bit of gifts lately. nope, not christmas.. (though i probably should start)... baby gifts.
and earlier this week... my hubby mentioned he's got a friend at work who's wife is expecting.. and they're already a week overdue... sooo technically, i've got time to knit something up right?
..in fingering weight yarn?.... oh. did i mention that i decided on a cardi? what the heck!!!
i've always loved the look of this cardi. the pattern is the maile sweater by nikki van de car. and it's so beautiful!
i'll knit this in knit picks stroll tonal. in springtime green. i hope i can get it to look as nice as my pal misocraftyknits' version.
clearly i'm insane.. but that's fine. i've accepted it.
besides, the size says for 3 months. and many of the projects i've looked at on ravelry seemed to have completed this project in decent time.. maybe i could just drink more caffeine and do it faster?
thing is. i don't even have the skein wound yet. so i'm gonna truck on over to the cloth castle to get that done today... and just go ahead and cast on. thank goodness the knitting is portable.. the kiddo can play and play at the park :)
tell me i can do this. ok? your cheerleading will surely make me knit faster. and i'll appreciate it.
brought to you by an over-caffeinated, overly-zealous, crazy knitter. what crazy projects are you working on today? i'm pouring another cuppa.
