More proof!

Gift #2 has been received to rave reviews. It's yet another baby sweater, for my friend Juls. When picking out something to do for a knitter, it's tough because I feel like it needs to be a bit more complex than what you'd do for the average Joe. I knew I'd hit on it as soon as I laid eyes on a cute little seed stitch cabled baby sweater pattern at my local yarn shop. With it being for a boy and Juls' tastes (and my own, I confess!), I didn't want any pastel baby colors. I picked navy and gold for Cal because she's a fan. I think it was a success.











Because it's hard to see the adorable details no matter how much I lighten the navy, here is the picture from the pattern designer's website

















The hat hasn't been finished yet but it's coming, Juls, I promise!

In other knitting news, I pulled out Apricot yesterday and worked on it a little. I didn't get more than an inch or so done but at least it's moving along.

The weekend was gorgeous. It's just not supposed to be upper 70's and sunny in November in Kentucky! Compared to last week's football game when it was in the 30's, there are no complaints. We did the Kentucky-Auburn football game and dinner at one of our usual places afterward. We skipped tailgating because 1:00 football games are not conducive to tailgating for lazy people like us. The Cats lost but that was expected. Overall, it was a good day.

    Just saw your comment over on Lesley's blog... Next time you're in Louisville, you should stop in at Sophie's. We're across the street from Lake Forest off of Shelbyville Road in Middletown. Check out http://www.sophiesfineyarn.com for better directions.

    This is in regards to Cashmerino...it does pill. I am freaking out! I've worn my pink sweater like 4 times now and it's pilling and looking "worn" and I don't like it. Ugh...
